I LOVE photographing food. So happily I have had a great year with lots of interesting commissions. Below are some of my favourites
I started the year in Taynuilt at the Etive Restaurant. A realtively new overhaul at the Taynuilt Hotel. Definately worth popping in for on the way to Oban!
Bibis Little Baking School in Elie. A new enterprise with Fiona Pratt at the Helm. I had a day there learning about Sourdough – was such a great day and I came away with a culture, which 8 months later is still going strong!
Kushis in Dunfermline – some of the best Indian Food I have tried.
However – do remember to take your own bottle as it is not liscensed
Allanhill Farm. I was there really to photograph the strawberry picking – but couldnt resist a few shots in their delightful cafe
A commercial studio shoot for Dundee Gin
A return visit to The Tailend is always welcome. This time in Dundee. Some of the best fish and chips around
A food shoot at the Fairmont , St Andrews . Afternoon tea is a must
A studio session for Innovate foods. Their development chef Vas and I had a wonderful day styling and creating!
The Apartment in Edinburgh is definately worth a visit
East Scrynes Fruit Farm Tea Room – a lovely rustic setting near Carnoustie, Dundee. Delious home baking , approved by Scruff!
There is a new Muffin Book out by Susan Reimer, or rather a re-print. We had 5 days in the studio shooting 58 different types of American Muffins.
The book is lovely.
The Real Food Cafe in Tyndrum Argyll. Fantastic baking, soups, fish and chips AND very dog friendly
A Christmas shoot for Loch Leven’s Larder. We had a great day in October photographing all their Christmas produce for their brochure. Emma Niven is the very talented stylist here – making my job so much easier
VisitScotland have launched a Porridge Trail. The shoot took place at Ballintaggart Farm near Grandtully. A ”foodie haven” [or heaven?] with two beautiful letting rooms. Loved it so much I booked both rooms for a treat at the end of January with friends.
And finally – I had two visits to Kanpai Sushi in Edinburgh. The most amazing and delicious Sushi. I would thoughly recommend a visit. So very fresh and great attention to detail.
Just some of the lovely work I get to do – and the perks?? I get to try the food! Quite often it comes home with me for supper!!
