Food glorious food (x 2)

We’re loving our double food Christmas campaigns  – with Mowie Kay for KFC and Con Poulos for Waitrose – we’ve covered all your Christmas food desires…Do get in touch if you’d like to see more work or call in books!

 

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.

Food Glorious Food

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.

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/

 

Veteran success

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. See more of the series on the website here:
