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.

The other side of the camera

Mark Harrison was photographing an author in Frankfurt last week, who has written a rather lovely description of what it is like to be on the other side of the lens*.  It’s absolutely worth a read for the quality of the writing, but it also encapsulates all the elements that we think make Mark such a brilliant portrait photographer – makes us feel quite proud of working with him!
