I know you all think I probably don't have time to blog because I spend all my time increasing my catalogue of gifs and funny cat photos, well that is only partially true because I'm doing this one.
Since February I have been taking photos of some amazing chefs:
Nathan Outlaw and Chris Simpson. The dish Chris prepared in this photo actually blew my mind (obviously I ate it!). The sauce has made me contemplate a daring raid into the kitchen with a ladle and some sort of vessel I can easily run away with.
Andy Appleton. I've got lots of photos of Andy doing festival demos and from his days at Fifteen. It was great to get some pictures of his new venture, Appletons at the Vineyard. Which was recently set up with the equally (possibly more) awesome Lyndsey, who I got to spend time with while shooting for the Cornwall Food Foundation.
I got to shoot at some great (and varied) holiday destinations:
Bosinver. I spent a few days at Bosinver with Pat (AKA action nan), her family and Jess (very talented interior stylist). Great bunch to work with in a stunning setting. They work hard, play hard and made sure there was plenty of lunch!
Safari Cornwall. Although it looked like I was just sitting around drinking cider (which I was doing admittedly) I was also being a highly professional photographer. Not sure I should have stripped off and jumped in the hot tub though...
Coffee: I'm doing a lot with coffee at the moment (but that's another post for another time). Here however, is a photo from one of Hugo's coffee courses. Obviously I'm a big part of these courses as without me people might have to go and get their own mugs or make their own bad jokes.
I have also been doing lots of portraits. Some serious and some less so.
Thanks for taking the time to get all the way to the bottom. This one seemed to ramble on a bit more than usual.
