NIck Galer is an extremely talented head chef who has worked under some of the most well known chefs in the country (inc Heston Blumenthal) and now has his own restaurant called 'The Miller of Mansfield' in Goring, Berkshire which recently won The Good Food Guide 2016 Readers' Award. We worked together on-site at his restaurant, and over the course of a full day, we were able to successfully photograph many of his seasonal dishes. The aim of the shoot was to be able to update the food photography on their website and to use the images across their various social media platforms. You can see some examples from the day below:
Heidi's Patisserie is located in Daniel Department Store, Windsor and has been serving the local area for decades. The coffee shop had also been there for many years and it was decided to re-brand and re-launch it as "Heidi's Patisserie" to attract more visitors.

Food Envy Photography was commissioned to photograph their new patisserie menu items, and also the opening day event put on the celebrate the launch.
