February flew by in an instant but I still managed to capture lot’s of great things along the way. In my last I saw this and thought post I noted that Spring was slowly starting to arrive. Well in February, it arrived in abundance! Flowers were in full bloom, colourful fruit and veg were on display and the skies shone bright. This was perfect and resulted in me taking a fair few food and flower photos, purely by coincidence of course!
This illustration couldn’t be more perfect right now. Since my trip to London a couple of weeks ago all I’ve wanted to eat is cheeseburgers and french fries. I don’t normally crave this food, but I did have some great cheeseburgers that week and I feel like I need to reminisce with just one more. For old time’s sake of course!
Happy weekend x
September was a bit of a non starter for my daily photo’s (hence no post!), but I didn’t let that put me off, I threw myself into October and got back on track. Luckily a few planned trips helped and I felt very inspired to take more photos and even challenge myself to take subjects I wouldn’t normally shoot – cafe’s and interior details for example. I didn’t need to worry, those photo’s became my most liked on Instagram! I think there’s a moral to this story – don’t be frightened try something new!
My obsession with food photography is growing by the week, I just can’t get enough of it! A photographer I love at the moment is Beth Galton, a New York based studio photographer who’s focuses on still life and food. I found Beth’s work by chance, it was her mesmerising Cut Food series that caught my attention to begin with and then I found her Landscapes project. The name intrigued me as it sat within her food photography series, but landscapes is outdoor scenery, right? So what has this got to do with food?
This is what… food landscapes that are intensely detailed and show our food close up, in a way we never take time to see. Beth Galton makes food beautiful.

I’m always on the lookout for interesting photography, especially when it comes to food and recently I’ve been spoilt with two great photographers who couldn’t be more different! Last week I shared with you Richard Haughton’s dramatic food photos, and this week I found Brittany Wright. A freelance photographer, who amongst other subjects, likes to play with her food…
Wow is all I can say about this stunning food photography. In fact I don’t feel like I’m doing it justice calling it ‘food photography’ as they are beautiful works of art from photographer Richard Haughton. He captures food, along with many other subjects, in a bold and dramatic way which catches your attention and doesn’t let go.
You can see more of Richard’s work on his website.
