Who We Are

I'm always super stoked when I get the chance to photograph exceptional culinary creations by  talented chefs.

Years of experience and hard work mean that I can set up lighting and photograph each dish in a way that highlights the chef's creativity and expertise.

With a trained eye and a passion for detail, I can tell what will make or break a shot.

My aim is to work with the world's greatest chefs and restaurants, taking very good photographs of very good food.
