The Angel is in a small village called Hetton in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales, in the few years Michael and his wife Johanna have been at The Angel they have transformed it into a must visit destination on the culinary map
Blue butterfly pea flower is very interesting. Its brilliant blue colour turns purple when mixed with lemon juice.
I made an iced tea drink with this healthy flower tea. I mixed the tea with lemon juice and sugar syrup first; then I poured it onto a glass filled with ice cubes. The fresh butterfly pea vines and blossoms are scattered around the glass.
I love gin. Every time I start a photo shoot of a type of gin, I think about how I could photograph it in such a way that it feels a little like the feeling it gives me when I sip it from my glass at night. This is the result of a story because each photo has a story that I look forward to showing you.
Thank you #foodelia team for this chance. It's an honor to be here.
Thank you @thepr1mebeachclub restaurant, Monte Gordo, Portugal for location and materials. Thank you for my assistant photographer and bartender @diogopinteus.
Thank you God that I can see the beauty of the world!
The new Wine & Nine restaurant approached me to shoot their new billboard campaign to be place throughout Australia's Sunshine Coast's Sunshine Plaza. We took an approach on featuring their generous servings of beautiful ingredients they use to dress each of their dishes. Seriously show stopping dishes that just begged to be shot in detail with a 100mm macro on the Canon's 5DSR for all the details when this series get blown up large!
Drinks were never my favorite subject to photograph. So I decided to try one to see how well I could get it done.
Whilst browsing through looking for inspiration I came upon some Redbull Mocktails. This image is my take on the BlackBerryBuzzerBeater made with the Redbull Blue Edition.
This lobster tail impressed me with its colour and near perfect shape.
It’s like a piece of art and doesn’t need any props which, in my opinion, would only distract from its natural beauty.
And I was lucky enough to get to eat this piece of beauty after the photo shoot...
Meal from Morocco. This photo includes a range of modern Moroccan dishes including starters and mains. Using a Tajine is a key part of Moroccan tradition in their cuisine, so it was important to me to feature them in this photo.
I used a Nikon D750 with a 24-70mm lens to shoot this.
Soft landing of an ice cube was taken in 40 degrees Celsius outside in natural light. My intention was to “freeze” the moment despite the temperature. In these weather conditions I didn’t have to bother with the condensation, the ice and the sun did a great job and set remarkable scene to my set up.
After a long evening of shooting a very detailed cheese, olives and wine setup, I started to clean up and I noticed the oil started to drip off the rosemary and the light hit these delicious olives and feta just perfectly, I just had to take the shot. And I celebrated with a glass of wine. Sometimes, it's the simple things that make the greatest impressions.
