Three jars of cheese cookies. I made this shot for a Passover hampers from Truly Grace - Bespoke Gifts. The cookies are one of the delicacies one will get in the hampers. Since these particular hampers also targeted gentlemen as the recipient, I styled the scene with some masculine vibe.
My granny always made sherry trifle at Christmas and absolutely soaked it in Harvey's Bristol Cream. This trifle was made partly for nostalgia and partly because I really wanted to try making a trifle in this big dish! I used one light from the side, feathered slightly and made the strawberries pop a little more in post-production. Then I ate it.
Part of a series using the same plating to depict 3 different social gatherings. The goal was to provide a sense of summer and outdoor gathering. I felt after the year we all just had, the thought of gathering with friends and family for a summer picnic gave a feeling of hopefulness that maybe this summer will be a little more normal. All the photos featured small finger foods and the same plates and backgrounds with different propping to add to the feeling that one person was having multiple summer gatherings.
Whole sea bass on black. I had some very smelly photo shoots that week with fish that wasn’t as fresh as it appeared initially. This fish however was as fresh as it looks like on the image, no smell. I like the contrast between the silvery fish and the black set-up. The green herbs didn’t only add colour to the picture but also added flavor to the fish when baked in a salt crust eventually.
I love creating small worlds through food scenes, and cocktails are probably my favorite to work with. A beautifully made cocktail is not complete without elegant glassware, and where you enjoy it just tops off the experience. I so enjoy the process of recreating the perfect setting for this kind of experience.
Cheesy quesadillas with beef and vegetables and avocado sauce on a side! The taste was sooo good and I wondered how to show off their taste to make the viewers crave to grab a few of these. I felt that minimal styling, stacking quesadillas one on another, catching some highlights on the filling and involving movement are good choices.
Shot for T2 Tea Mothers Day campaign, featuring their French Earl Grey loose leaf tea. These were Creamy French Earl Grey Overnight Oats with Blood Orange syrup. The packaging for the product was orange and purple. So I wanted to use those same colours in the image. It was such a fun shoot.
