Nerys Howel: Welsh Food By Season

An exciting delivery today as I received some copies of the recipe book I worked on with food stylist Nerys Howel earlier this. The photography for this was interrupted by the first Covid 19 lockdown but was a welcome distraction during some tricky months as we returned to work. The book was designed and produced by Welsh publisher Y Lolfa.

Bistrot Pierre summer food menu

A trip up to Southport this month to photograph for Bistrot Pierre’s summer menu. A key part of the brief was to create a summer vibe within a bistrot location. As always a great time working with the marketing and food development team at Bistrot Pierre.

A visit to the Seren Collection’s two incredible restaurants Beach House and Coast, both in beautiful coastal locations, to photograph some of the latest dishes on the menus of Hywel Griffith and Thomas Hine. Beautiful food created by two lovely guys.

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.

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.

Cocktails!

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

The Grove - Spring

In addition to their guest chef evening, I’ve also been at The Grove during the spring season to cover the extensive gardens in their spring glory and also the new food menu developed by executive chef Allister Barsby. It’s no wonder The Grove was voted Welsh Hotel of the Year by the Good Hotel Guide for 2016.

The Grove - Guest Chef Evening

I had a great day/evening at The Grove in March photographing their latest Guest Chef Evening with the renowned Michael Wignall and his team from Gidleigh Park. Truly incredible food was enjoyed by a full dining room of guests who seemed to be having a great time!

Bistrot Pierre

I’ve photographed a few more of Bistrot Pierre’s latest restaurants as they continue to expand their successful business into new areas throughout the UK and also been involved in photographing their new spring/summer menu. It’s also been pleasure to sample some of their delicious menu at the shoots!!
