Some of my readers have asked how I ended up being a photographer and doing what I do full time. So, since we are in this season of reflection, I thought it’d be a good idea to answer to that question with probably the most personal experience I’ve shared since I started writing on this journal.
So it happened, my biggest fear, well one of many but probably the worse and the most embarrassing. I thought that was the end of me, the end of my business and that I would never ever be hired again as a professional food photographer.
One of my students asked the other day this: “You talk a lot about the artistic expression on our photography so what is and how do I find the art on my photography?”
Since opening its doors in 2015 until the very last service this summer, I had the privilege and honor to document the life and work of the UK’s first zero-waste restaurant, SILO.

I just finished editing some shots I did for The Box Fit here in Brighton so I thought, what a great opportunity to show them off by answering to some of the more common questions I get asked on the subject.
Is photography becoming a lot more computational and technological? I thought about this recently while waiting to depart at the Thames Water Bus. I overheard a conversation between two photographer friends discussing the resolution on their cameras and how everything can be fixed in Photoshop.
