Jonathan Phillips Ceramics

I had the pleasure of photographing some of the latest work of ceramicist Jonathan Phillips this month. I've photographed the work of Jonathan's partner Susan previously so it was great to experience the contrast between their work.


Recipe photography

An enjoyable number of days in the studio photographing recipes showcasing Welsh produce and meat for a couple of different clients. Both of the briefs asked for a stripped back look with the use of natural background materials so we had some fun sourcing and creating a number of different backgrounds.

Beef & lamb recipes

It was great working with food stylist Nerys Howel again on these recipes promoting Welsh beef and lamb with a stripped back style suitable for multiple media formats.

Food recipes

I had a number of enjoyable days in the studio in December working with food stylist Nerys Howel on a number of recipes promoting Welsh produce. There’s a lot of incredible food being produced in Wales and it’s a joy to showcase some of it.



I spent an enjoyable day photographing these amazing cocktails in the studio over the summer for a bar menu. We did stay sober - honest!

Studio photography for an extensive UK website update for the high quality Italian pewter retailer Cosi Tabellini.


Studio on location!

Well it’s been a while since my last blog entry. It’s been a busy year and the blog entries sort of fell by the wayside unfortunately. I’ve had quite a few interesting shoots recently one being a request to do a large studio shoot but...on location! The subject was airline seating but due to logistical issues, the seats were only available to be shot on 1 day and it had to be in their factory. Here’s a shot from the set:


And here’s one of the images from the shoot:


Food, glorious food!

I’ve had the pleasure of shooting some nice food recipes this month working with the wonderful food stylist, Alison Huw and Howel Food Consultancy. Here are a couple of my favourites from the shoot:

In the studio a lot this month

Well I seem to have been shooting in the studio quite a bit this month though that’s probably not a bad thing for January in Wales! Here’s an image from a shoot for a local wine merchant:

And here’s one of me (precariously!) setting up a shot for a local design agency’s portfolio:

Arthritis testing website

Some more studio work from earlier this summer has gone live this week at Lots of paint involved with this one - I’m still finding specks of blue and yellow paint around the studio 3 months later!! Lots of respect to our very patient and accommodating model Claudia, who endured a whole day of myself and Chris from the ad agency, repeatedly covering her in paint!

Spire Healthcare ads

Had my first sightings this weekend on a couple of taxis and a billboard of some the Spite Healthcare ads that I photographed earlier in the summer. I really enjoyed these shoots - the real ‘models’ from Spire were delightful to work with and got into the shoot really quickly despite not having any previous experience of a photoshoot, while Martyn Williams from the Cardiff Blues was a very natural model and also very patient!
