The Food Photographer of the Year finalists were announced last week and they are so stunning I had to share a few of my favourites. Check out the full gallery of finalists at www.pinkladyfoodphotographeroftheyear.com.
I love the variation in the categories and the different food stories the images tell. My food styling and photography is something I’m always working to improve on so I find these shots immensely inspiring! I will be pinning lots to my Food Photography Inspiration Pinterest board.
Speaking of foodie inspiration, I just had the most wonderful food filled weekend at Bristol Food Connections. More than your average food festival, there were events taking place across the city all bank holiday. We took in some brilliant talks and demos, discovered some great artisan producers and drank our way round the East Bristol Brewery trail. My highlight was a Gather, Ferment, Flame demo with Gill Meller from River Cottage and Matthew Pennington from The Ethicurean. The Ethicurean is my very favourite restaurant so it was great to see chef Pennington in action and pick up some tips for fermenting veg at home.
