The Loddon Swan

My husband and I were invited to The Loddon Swan recently – they hosted a Jubilee fish supper, and were kind enough to reach out to us. It’s somewhere that we’ve been wanting to try for a while and, considering the AA gave it four stars as a boutique hotel and two rosettes as a […]


Fletchers,in Plymouth

When my husband and I ate at Fletchers, we were utterly blown away by the quality of the food, not to mention the wonderful staff and really sweet environment that we were dining in. We can’t wait to go back, and I’m looking forward to reliving the food by writing this post – it was […]


The Catch, Plymouth

The Catch,  Plymouth Recently, my partner and I went for a spectacular meal in Plymouth – at The Catch. It’s a fantastic spot that highlights the great fish and seafood that’s been caught in the area for generations. We love eating seafood. So often, we find that it’s one of the brighter, more flavoursome offerings […]


Roger Hickman’s Norwich

When we got to this wonderful spot, my husband and I were greeted quickly and seated in a nice spot near some beautiful art. The atmosphere of the dining room felt quite posh, as well as being a bit less intense than other fancy restaurants we’ve eaten in. The staff members that we interacted with […]


The Octopus Experience

PLEASE NOTE SINCE WRITING THIS BLOG THIS AMAZING RESTAURANT HAS NOW CLOSED Last Saturday my husband,  myself, and two friends visited The Octopus in Great Yarmouth. We had a fabulous night from start to finish. The welcome we received from Ben and Mario was outstanding! From greeting everyone personally as they came through the door, […]


The Earlham, Norwich has a new menu

The Earlham offers Casual Dining in the Heart of NR2 The quirky decor and the atmosphere of The Earlham are wonderful and […]

Lahore at 24

Food photography is always exciting. Every day is filled with new colours, textures and pairings to play with, and that’s before you taste anything! With so many fantastic food pop-ups, food trucks and catering companies in the UK, it’s always inspiring to discover the foodie behind the business. Learning why people create and cook the […]


Creativity & the Camera

Here at the Culinary Camera, we’ve photographed everything and everything that any foodie could dream of, from Bakers to street food vendors, tasters, and tastemakers, to late-night drinks and dining in restaurants, as well as covering and capturing celebrations and successes. It’s amazing to see so many people sharing their dinner dates, dine out experiences […]



We often get asked, ‘Why should I book a food photographer for my restaurant?’ There are so many answers to this question. However, considering we live in a visually driven world, photography could open the door to a whole host of new opportunities for you, your food, and your business. With the world reopening and the UK […]


Taking food photos in a restaurant

I work with some amazing restaurants and chef patrons taking food photos for their social media, menus, websites and advertising which I absolutely love. It occurred to me though that perhaps I should let you know what’s involved and how that all works for all concerned.


What’s in My Bag? Diary of a Food Photographer

The great thing about being a food photographer is how light I get to travel. No huge backpacks full of gear for me. Travel light, move fast!  Did you buy it? I’ve got to admit to fibbing to you. The truth is that while the camera and lens collection I lug around with me is […]

It’s a journey that starts with a conversation and evolves into a collaborative masterpiece of culinary art. The process is as much about the […]
