Exhibition held at Topfoto Gallery, Edenbridge extended to July 12, 2011
In my twenty years as a food photographer I have always aimed to avoid the tricks and photograph food as simply as possible, the food is what it is - real. All the photographs in this exhibition were shot using daylight as the light source but to make the most of the texture, colour and shape of food using natural light presents at least as much of a challenge as using a complicated flash lighting set up. I work with talented food stylists to arrange things beautifully on a plate and take great care with props and composition, but the real skill for me in food photography is finding a way using light, focus and composition to convey to the viewer the same excitement that I feel when I first look at my subject and want to eat it!
These pictures show some of the solutions to that problem.
