Some photography for BBC Good Food Magazine - Van Zeller restaurant, Harrogate

First started working for the BBC family of food magazines about 7 years ago - and it's great to still be shooting for them all this time later! One of the best things is going to these up and coming restaurants across the north of England - is shooting them before they become famous! One such example is a recent shoot at Van Zeller in Harrogate. A fantastically beautiful Yorkshire town. Nestled in the cobbled backstreets is Van Zeller. A restaurant that is carving out it's own niche of delightfully fresh seasonal fayre. I also got to taste - so I can practice what I preach!
Here's some photos from the shoot:

Great shoot with BBC presenter Paul Hudson up at the dramatic Malham Cove in Yorkshire. This was for a new series based on the extreme weather patterns this crazy planet of ours is currently displaying... Great guy, great location, super shoot!

Simon Rimmer from BBC Something for the Weekend - photos of his restaurant Greens in Manchester

Rolled over to Manchester to grab some photos for BBC Olive magazine. This time the brief was to try and catch the "busy TV celebrity chef" Simon Rimmer and his restaurant Greens in south Manchester. Great little restaurant with a fab team of chefs rustling up some great vegetarian nosh! Simon Rimmer was a really chilled likeable guy with no hint of the anticipated "i'm on TV so i'm too busy etc etc to talk etc etc." So had a good yarn, took a few photos and then got to eat the food afterwards. Sometimes I really do just love this job!

Promotional photos for the new BBC series of Antiques Road Show

Jonathan Pratt and Charles Hanson were in Liverpool last week as part of the new BBC series of Antiques Road Trip. They're cruising round the UK in an old Alpha Romeo picking up various bargain antiques along the way. There was no love lost between the two and before they came to blows I managed to grab a couple of promo photographs that are going to be used to promote the new series.

"The programme pairs Britain’s best loved antiques experts and sends them on a nail-biting road trip across the UK, competing with each other to make the most money buying and selling antiques. The battle of wits, expert knowledge and egos has proven to be a compelling combination, with the series attracting audiences of up to 2.6 million."
