Good luck tonight to Tom Parker, who has been shortlisted for the Medicine in Focus section in the Wellcome Photography Prize for one of this series. The squeamish amongst you may want to look away…
Celebrating the very best of food photography (and film) from around the world, this year’s Pink Lady Awards delivered another fabulous evening of top-notch creative work and champagne-fuelled celebrations at the Mall Galleries. Congratulations to our very own Susan Bell for scooping a fantastic 2nd place win in the ‘Food for Celebration’ category with her beautiful image, ‘Grand Aoili’. See the entire gallery of this year’s finalists and winners by clicking the link below.
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.
We’ve been working on some lovely top secret Christmas projects recently with our food photographers – we can’t show you any of that work of course – but grab a snack, and settle down to drool over these examples of Susan Bell, Mowie Kay and Con Poulos‘s tasty work to whet your appetite!
Do get in touch if you’d like to see more work, or find out about availability of any of our artists.
Congratulations to Mark Harrison for his third win in the Portrait of Britain Competition. We love this double portrait of Mark’s, which is one of the 100 winning entries into the 2018 Portrait of Britain competition. The work will be exhibited on JCDecaux screens nationwide from the 1st Sept, on bus stops, high streets and in train stations, as part of the biggest exhibition of contemporary portraiture ever held.
We can’t wait to see it on billboards around the UK, as well as seeing it in the book which will be available from Hoxton Mini Press. Books can be pre-ordered here: http://www.portraitofbritain.uk/pre-order-book/ and you can see the full set of winners and shortlist here: http://www.portraitofbritain.uk/
We’re delighted that two of Mark Harrison’s portraits have been selected for the Royal Photographic Society 161 shortlist for 2018. One of them is part of a wider series on veterans, shot on location at the RAF museum Hendon at which I was lucky enough to join Mark at the shoot. The men, and occasional women, that Mark persuaded to be photographed there were reticent about their bravery and skills, but charming and fascinating to the last. His portraits manage to both capture that sense of them and honour their bravery and courage. This is a different shot, from the same series, of LAC Dennis Hope.

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!
It’s that time of year again – and this year both Tom Parker and Susan Bell are both up for a prize, but in different categories (phew). We can’t wait until next week when the winners are announced at our favourite event of the year. Keep your fingers crossed for both of them! https://bit.ly/2GyCdoi
