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:

Relish Merseyside and Lancs Book Cover - a photo of the Liverpool Docks

Photo of Liverpool for cover of Relish Merseyside recipe bookSoon to go to print - the lovely guys from Relish have just emailed me the proof to sign off. The brief was to supply an image that was vibrant, colourful and showed Liverpool at its best. Big thanks to Liverpool for turning it on. Simple aim was to find a nice evening and get shooting. You can often find a nice spot in Liverpool and just sit and wait as the sky, colour, shadows all change and an image can literally emerge if you're prepared to wait...

Am now looking forward to the official book launch party on Hope Street.

It's all about the Turkeys! Some photos for Lunya restaurant Liverpool

The brief - head out to a farm and grab some photos of 100 turkeys grazing in a field. Yep, no worries!
These Turkeys are being hand reared at Thurstaston Farm exclusively for Lunya restaurant in the heart of Liverpool One. Owner and executive chef Peter Kinsella was giving me the low down on how important it is that these Turkeys are hung for 12 days and then slow cooked in their wood-burning brick oven for the ultimate, succulent bird! Might have to head along and give them a try myself!

Brugal Rum hits the streets of Manchester. Some photos from the Northern Quarter.

Saturday afternoon I headed across to Manchester to grab some photographs of the Brugal Rum Promotion goin' on. Introduced to the UK in 2008 - the Dominican Republic Rum is now being heavily promoted in the Northwest. They've teamed up with some of the country's top street artists to create large murals on the city streets - successfully drumming up publicity 'guerilla-styles.'
Brugal claims to be the fourth largest and fastest growing rum in Europe with over 1 million cases being sold a year in Spain alone. I was in Manchester last week photographing a few Brugal cocktails in a local bar. I'll put some photos up shortly from that, but first, here's some photos of the street mural, in the bohemian Northern Quarter of Manchester.
