Food & Drink Photography

I’ve always enjoyed cooking and baking, so I guess it is only natural that I enjoy photographing food as well as making and eating it.

I’m a firm believer that we eat with our eyes.

Nowadays, your online presence is your shop window.  And you want to make sure yours stands out from the crowd.

If you’ve ever tried to take photos of your food products then you’ll know it’s not easy to make them look good.  I know the tricks (both in taking the photo and editing) that will elevate the images.

I don’t know about you but I’m certainly much more likely to book a table or place an order if there’s delicious looking photos to see online.

Ahead of a food shoot I’ll liaise with you about the kind of images you need and particularly what they will be used for.

You may need images for your website, social media, print marketing or for display.  Professional photos are an effective investment in your business.

You may also need photos of your cafe, bar or restaurant and your amazing staff in action.  This will show potential customers why they should choose you rather than your competition.

I can also create bespoke artwork for your walls, either food related or other.

Following the shoot, I’ll edit the images to make sure they look their best and then deliver your images to you.


All shoots include:

  • Pre shoot consultation (via Zoom, or in person if you’re nearby)
  • Full shoot planning
  • A similar amount of editing time as shooting time (I’m all about attention to detail)
  • Digital images – delivered as both high resolution and web optimised versions
  • Full usage rights to the images

Pricing for food photography very much depends upon your needs (location, number of dishes, number of images etc) so please contact me for a bespoke quote. As a rough guide, my quote will be based upon the following rates:

First hour – £120, subsequent hours £80 each
Half day (up to 4 hours) – £350
Full day (up to 7 hours) – £550

Discounts offered for regular bookings so you can keep your visual content up to date.
