Photographing cocktail drinks, entrees, and desserts for restaurants in the UK must be one of my favourite areas of my career. I've travelled all over the midlands to capture chef's delicious creations and bar staff's tasty concoctions. Some examples of my work below feature dishes and drinks from Nottingham and Sheffield in particular. I love to show the ambience when possible. Yet keep it simple when instructed to for entree or dessert menu photos.

Derby, Nottingham, Sheffield, Leicester and Birmingham are just some of the locations I travel to when working with restaurants as a food photographer. So it's tough when people ask me what area I cover. When it comes to food photography, I prefer to work on location. I can't stand being in the same four walls day in and day out. Photographing food for restaurants gives me the variety I crave.
From pubs, cafes, eclectic eateries, to dessert parlours and vegan take aways, every restaurant can benefit from professional food photography. Show off your best dishes and the ones that set you apart from your competition. Call 07710 271457 to discuss how hiring me as your food photographer will up your game.
Unit Sheffield is a North American style restaurant with giant burgers and chocolate covered desserts. Or puddings as we'd say here in England. They even sell Mexican sodas as you'll see in the photographs below.
The goal of the food photography shoot, was to photograph each item in a variety of ways for use on social media. Such as instagram. A restaurant may want to feature a speciality burger for instance, many times. But doesn't want to bore potential clients with the same photograph. Therefore, having a handful of images of that speciality burger is essential. Speaking of burgers, check out the images below.
Meal plans are all the rage right now and the best businesses will stand out when potential customers visit their website. The meals themselves need to be tasty and in this case, healthy. But the photographs are the first impression. Which is why Scott and Dave decided to hire a professional food photographer to show off their healthy meal plans.
Located just out of Chesterfield in Derbyshire, My Fit Foods prep delicious meals and delivers them to their customers homes or work place. After an over the phone consultation we had a clear vision for food photographs that would best highlight their brand. My role at the food photographer was to show how the meals would be packaged, each dish plated, and some of the My Fit Foods team. We also needed to work on images that would show the brand overall. Especially for items such as the homepage of the website. To see some of the final outcome you can visit their website or view some of my favourite shots below.

Nottingham area based caterers Posh Nosh East Midlands contacted me thanks to a referral from another client. Interested in some images to compliment their upcoming website design. This time going for a darker colour palette. But still want the colours of their delicious food to speak for itself. I was more than happier to accommodate. Especially when I tasted some of their apple and honey sausage rolls. They are truly scrumptious.
Since corporate catering services are a large part of their offerings, Rhona and Rob created a list of tasty canapes, salads, sandwiches, and cakes along with many other items for me to photograph. We focused on individual food items along with collections of offerings. Such as afternoon tea, meat boards and cheese boards. But enough from me, go see some of the images below. I highly recommend Posh Nosh East Midlands catering services. Give them a ring for your next corporate event.
Being a food photographer has many rolls. One is to provide images for advertising such as company websites, brochures and social media. All of which Price & Fretwell in Tibshelf Derbyshire hired me for. They provide aged meats that are sourced locally to high end restaurants and catering companies.
After discussing their goals we agreed on a dark moody set of images that really highlights their products. Ranging from beef, pork, and chicken among other foods. Another goal of theirs was to capture the ageing fridge where beef for example, is hung. Including some shots that show the natural colours of the meats and the colour of the actual lighting that is produced by Price & Fretwell's state of the art ageing process. As seen in the last image.
I often see these images shared on their facebook and instagram page. So it was great to receive some feedback from Nathan Price such as, "The photos look fantastic, we have had some very positive feedback and also we have had some orders from the marketing that has included them. Darren in particular has been very pleased with them."
In the heart of St. Peter's Square in Derby sits Al Arabi Shawarma & Grill. Not to mention the Shisha and Dessert Bar attached to it. I was fortunate enough to be hired to photograph their menu items along with interior shots of the restaurant and shisha bar. We even managed to fit in some photographs of the staff along with one of the owners of the Derby business.
Food photography is by far one of my favourite types of my career. So I was delighted not only capture their dishes and team at work, but also to taste some of it. Absolutely delicious! Oh and check out all the amazing decor at the Shisha Bar. It's a gem in the heart of the city.
Al Arabi has used their food photos and images of the restaurant on their social media pages such as facebook and instagram and they've been a bit hit. Here's a selection of my favourites.
