A Complete Photography Service
for Hotels, Restaurants & Bars

I provide a bespoke photography service aimed specifically at the hotel and catering industry, encompassing all aspects of the business. Areas covered include interiors, exteriors, award ceremonies, staff photos event coverage and more, but my main speciality is in food photography.

Having spent the first decade of my working life in hotels, restaurants and professional kitchens, I’m knowledgable not only about the photographic techniques I’ve developed during my years as a photographer, I’m also able to talk to chefs on a technical culinary level, bringing out the best in their food.

There’s no studio required. I bring all that’s needed to photograph your menu right there in your own kitchen or restaurant. The images provided are full high resolution digital files, large enough to be used on printed marketing materials, but also compressed to use on digital platforms.

My customers include…

Hotels & Guesthouses

From 1 bedroom self catering cottages to 100 bedroom city centre hotels.

Fine Dining Restaurants

From small local restaurants up to Michelin Star awarded establishments.

Bistros & Brasseries

Informal dining establishments, cafes, coffee shops and food retailers.

Pubs & Bars

Cocktail menus, wine & spirits, bar snacks and traditional pub grub.
