Since 2013 I have worked on a number of food styling jobs for Crown Perth – mainly menu items for some of the more casual eateries in the casino.

This recent shoot, however was for two of their premium restaurants – Modo Mio and Silks. The purpose was twofold; an updated look and feel to their imagery as well as some specific dining promotions.

Working with seasoned professional photographer Craig Kinder and his assistant James, the preparation for these shots was meticulous – starting with a pristine white linen table cloth on which to build our set ups. Three layers of felt, fabric & table cloths, two hot irons and some very intensive team work later, we were ready to begin! There’s always a high level of detail involved in these shoots, with much discussion; decision making; tweaking, tweaking & a bit more tweaking. And it’s always worth all the effort when the results are so beautiful!
