Britain is choc-full of talented chefs. Luckily for us, there are Brits who are equally talented in capturing the beauty of delicious dishes. If you’re after some foodspiration on the go, or are simply looking to fill your Instagram feed with some beautiful shots, give these British food photographers a follow.
Jodi has a keen eye for attention to detail, and loves showcasing textures. She enjoys displaying the artistry of cooking, from capturing the food itself, to the chef in action. Her superb shots can be seen in M: A 24 Hour Cookbook, in the Lakeland 50th Anniversary Recipe Book, and in our 2016 London guide.
What began as a creative outlet, Louise’s food blog, Cygnet Kitchen, has transformed into a career. Louise champions British produce, which is evident in her work as a freelance food writer, stylist and photographer – check out her work with Great British Chefs and Urban Truffle.
David has been credited as ‘one of the most prolific food photographers of the century’ by Jamie Oliver, for whom he took pictures for all but one of his bestsellers. He’s also has his own book, aptly named Around The World in 80 Dishes.
With a background in both cookery and photography, taking fancy food shots is Laura’s forte. She has worked with a plethora of well-known chefs, including Tom Kerridge, Rachel Khoo and Michel Roux (senior and junior) to name but a few.
Food and interiors are Sophie’s specialty. She believes that capturing the mood and style of food is the way to take an excellent picture. Her portfolio includes the likes of the Cotswold Fudge Company and Maison Rustique, and our 2016 Hampshire & Isle of Wight Guide.
David says that he loves food almost as much as he loves photography. This passion-driven combo has resulted in a medley of awards, and big-name clients like Nestlé and Michael Caines. David likes to capture food that’s just come out of the oven, focusing on the produce rather than the presentation.
