Well, the year's turned and I'm mooching around in the office trying to reorganise/springclean and generally do nothing! It was a good year (2012) and you can read a review here... At the moment its snowing here in Bristol, so any excuse to discuss 'not snowing' weather would be gratefully received!

Tim Maitland is the young owner of a small catered ski chalet company, called The Tasty Ski Company, with places in Morzine and Grand Massif in the French Alps. His idea is to provide luxury accommodation with top quality catering in the heart of the ski country he knows so well. In his own words, “Food is what makes us tick. Our team has a wealth of experience throughout the catering industry, from 3 Michelin Star restaurants to luxury alpine chalet companies. Catering is what we love and what we do best”. Tim asked me to provide new photography for the updated website, and for two days we have been shooting interiors, exteriors, food and ‘lifestyle’. Here is a small selection of what we achieved with the food…
Food Photography in this sort of situation is a balancing act. We were not in a studio, Tim was cooking, and we only had a dining room table on which to photograph the finished results. We had limited time, and were restricted to using available light. So, using the existing ‘props’ (plates, cutlery etc) and a bit of sunlight we managed to photograph a surprising number of expertly created dishes. It helps that Tim has worked with Heston Blumenthal (note the Butternut Squash ‘Foam’ above!)…
Blimey… cost me a few quid, but here’s a nice review… Mark Bolton Photography Hero | This Chateau Life http://bit.ly/kR5TVv
It was the night of the Royal Wedding (Will and Kate) and the lovely staff at Chateau Rigaud in South West France were preparing another feast for us… it’s often difficult to shoot a hotel at night (especially when the interior lights are on motion sensors!), combined with the fact that reasonable ISO settings on your camera call for no movement from the ‘models’!… this one turned out quite well, and shortly afterwards I enjoyed my first drink of the day (as you can tell, the rest of the guests had been celebrating the royal wedding all day!!)
Have just begun work on shooting lovely Chateau Rigaud near St Emilion, France… great atmosphere, great hosts, great countryside… here are some quick samples.
just back from East Prawle and off tomorrow to shoot for Chateau Rigaud, a lovely looking hotel in South of France… seven days of ridiculously hot weather, what’s the betting it’s raining in Bordeaux?
