The Weekender

This was a great day. Sun, sea, sand and super food were all for the taking and taken.

Accompanying a journo, I arrived in Broadstairs on the east Kent coast. Our first objective was to hit Osteria Posillipo. While Dan and his dictaphone set to work, I set about shooting this lovely little Italian restaurant perched on a hill overlooking the beach. Linguine Posillipo was their signature dish, so we ordered two, a pitcher of white wine and a fine sea view.

After the feast and thank yous, I snapped my way along the main coastal path up towards another reputable Italian establishment. Morelli’s Gelato is a wondrous time machine and ice cream parlour. Knickerblocker glories and antiquated 30s decor reign supreme and the smiling staff are all rather sweet.

The photos were commissioned for a magazine piece.

I hope to do something similar very soon!

Xenia’s column

Xenia is a food stylist. She freelances and works for a plethora of publications.

Not long ago, she asked if I would shoot some pizzas she had made for her column in the Daily Mail. I didn’t say no, put it that way.

They are simple shots but that certainly betrays the intense concentration and attention to detail required – by both involved. All images were tightly cropped about the actual base before being used in print.

Standard pizza base

     Chorizo and pepper
     Anchovy and sun-dried tomato
     Courgette and ham
     Rocket and ricotta
