Can’t beet this

We’re loving the rich colours of this fabulous beetroot feature shot by Susan Bell for the latest issue of Waitrose Food. Susan spent time on a beetroot farm photographing the growing crops and then almost a year later we went into the studio to shoot the recipes.  It’s such a treat to shoot an ingredient from the ground to plate –  we hope you enjoy the images as much as we did photographing them.

Winner Winner!

Congratulations to Tom Parker for winning  the “InterContinental Food at the Table”  at The Pink Lady Food Photography Awards last week – one of our favourite nights of the year (thanks to Tattinger and the fab Caroline Kenyon).  Great to see Tom’s work up on the wall and you can see all the finalists and his winning work here: https://bit.ly/2KJCC9F

We’re looking forward to next years competition already!

 

 

Awards here, awards there…

We’ve been happily collecting a clutch of awards  to go on the office mantlepiece over the last month  – David Boni won a Roses award for his Smooth Glasgow portrait project for Whyte and Mackay (exhibition picture) and both Tom Parker and Susan Bell were winners in the Pink Lady food photography awards.  Tom Parker won first prize in the Politics of Food category  and Susan was second in the Food of the World  category. We’re very proud of all our talented photographers and look forward to more wins in the future – no pressure!

January already?

We really needed our Christmas break this year as we finished off 2016 with a 3 days shoot for a new beauty client with Susan Bell and started 2017 with a 4 day shoot for David Boni with another new – this time pharmaceutical – client.  It’s only halfway through the month and we’ve already been out and about with the portfolios and treats for hungry browsers and had a creative PPM at the top of an unfinished skyscraper with Mowie Kay.  So all in all 2017 really started  with a bang for us – and we hope it has for you too.

 

Looking forward to working with old and new clients again this year – and do let us know if you’d like to book us in to  come into your office to show you portfolios and bring you cake…

 

Susan Bell – success at Pink Lady Food Photography Awards

We had a very happy, champagne fuelled, night out (thank you Tattinger and Pink Lady) at the Food Photography Awards last night .  It’s always a lovely chance to see many of our favourite clients in one place, and to look at some amazing food photography on the walls.  But last night, we had even more to reason to enjoy it as our very own Susan Bell won first prize in the  Production Paradise Food off the Press category (https://www.pinkladyfoodphotographeroftheyear.com/finalists-gallery-2016/ ) To say that Susan was surprised to win would be an understatement – but she rallied round and we helped her to celebrate late into the evening.  Congratulations Susan on a fabulous win! Cook Nourish-985-Salmonstill-EditRetouched

#InLucidsWindow

Today we drew back the curtain to unveil Con Poulos as this months artist #InLucidsWindow .

Opting for a refreshing Ice Lolly and a Pina Colada image, we hope it puts all our visitors and neighbours in the mood for Summer.

Yes chef!

For a man of simple tastes when it comes to food over the last few years Mark Harrison has a spent a lot of time with Michelin starred chefs.  This fantastic shoot for Stylist Magazine starred the leading female chefs worldwide.  Greedy types that we are at Lucid we were disappointed he didn’t bring us back any high end snacks  – but the pictures are great, so we were visually satisfied instead… You can read the story in full in this weeks  magazine – out now or see the rest of the tear sheets under commissioned work on Mark’s webpage.

Spring at last…

A whole weekend of sunshine (alright and showers) and we know spring is really here as Mowie Kay’s most recent shoot for Caffe Nero has just come out. We always love working with Caffe Nero and shot these gorgeously summery frozen drinks  on a sunny, but cold, day in January. Now the days are a bit warmer we can’t wait to put these drinks to the test…
