Firstly, a warm welcome to my website and thanks for stopping by. 

I’m a London-based Food Photographer and Director and I’ve been shooting professionally for over 20 years. However, I’ve been accompanied by a camera for much longer (in the beginning it was a red, plastic Halina: now it’s a Hasselblad H6D-100.

I love to cook and I love to eat. I also really love to feed people. In the early days of my career I even used to prepare the lunches for the shoots. That was fun but obviously not something I was able to keep up! So you can see that I’m pretty dedicated to the pleasure that is food. I believe that’s why I’ve managed to carve out a successful path for myself in food photography, which has resulted in high-profile clients such as M&S, Costa, McDonalds, Waitrose, Sainsbury’s, Nestle, Birds Eye and General Mills, to name a few.

I am very passionate about my work and I derive immense satisfaction in receiving a brief and being able to plan and execute a beautiful project that is shot or filmed with great love. I work with flash, continuous lighting and also daylight, it’s all about what the project needs. The biggest pleasure is taking a subject and bringing it to life using beautiful lighting in whichever form that may be.

I love welcoming people to my studio and I hope at some point I’ll have the opportunity to show you around and create a truly stunning project for you.

In the meantime, here is a behind-the-scenes so you can see for yourself a little of what we get up to:
