About Us

The Sony Europe Imaging Ambassadors behind the lenses. 

Stories ~ Food ~ People

We are Kate and Brent – a rare combination of a couple who offer food photography, video and aerial location work.  We love people and we love food so we bring these brilliant things together and use our image making passion and skills to tell authentic and creative food stories. 

Food stories provide an engaging way of moving beyond food as a basic staple and exploring the lifestyles, cultures and personalities that surround it.  Food is celebrated around the World and has the power to bring people together, invoke emotions and create memories.

We would love to help tell your story and  you can find out more about ours below.

Our Story

This image was shot on our wedding day in Dubrovnik and it marks a very important new chapter in the story of our lives.

We are second time around and were friends for 10 years before falling in love over a mutual love of photography and filming.

Food has always been central to our lives and our wedding plans were shaped by our desire to spend precious time with our closest friends and family whilst introducing them to the delights of the local Croatian food and wine.

As well as capturing culinary masterpieces and the people behind them we also shoot luxury weddings and events.   And spend a considerable amount of time training and mentoring fellow professionals in the industry.

We describe our role as storytellers  because what matters to us is the ability to bring a human connection to beautifully crafted images and film.  We use our unique vision and years of experience to deliver work that is authentic, beautiful and artistic.  Work that stands out but also stands the test of time.

The images on the Gallery page are a selection that show our ‘style’ but our job is to interpret, translate and create work that is true to your brand and your values.   Before training to become a professional photographer, Kate worked in the Media industry specialising in advertising, branding and marketing for clients including the BBC and Sainsburys.  You can see Kate’s people photography work on her website: www.katehs.com.

Most importantly we have a huge amount of experience, a huge amount of kit and the ability to put people at ease in front of the camera.

Get in touch and tell us a little about your story and how we can help.
