Curry Photography

When I am asked to shoot curry I worry a little, sometime the curry itself  lacks colour and texture, especially if it’s a Korma. Luckily the curry I had to work with was a Tikka Masala. Working with only the quantity of meat and veg in the dish we lift them up to bring them to surface to add definition and to help make to food easily recognisable. Propping curries is one of my favourite food styling jobs, adding to breads, crunching popadoms, squeezing limes and sprinkling herbs and spices about. Beautiful shot, I’m so happy with the ways these turned out.

Chick Chick

I’ve been working on a Halal meat shoot and needed to come up with some ideas on how to present chicken legs and a whole chicken. I knew immediately which board/surface I wanted to use – it’s one that chef had made for me out of an old pallet and I wanted to show the chicken in the pans they have been cooked in. I’m really pleased with the way the shots turned out and have added them straight into my portfolio.
