We all have slightly different requirements for a great dining experience but usually it all comes down to the basics: the company you keep, atmosphere, service and of course the meal itself. The Imperial, a gastropub in Fulham, fits the bill for me with an added bonus of having a wonderfully photogenic interior to swoon over.
Right before 2014 came to a close I had the pleasure of working on a photoshoot for BerinMade’s spring/summer 2015 catalogue. This London-based boutique specialises in fine, ready-made and bespoke stationery. As someone who adores stationery and has a love for handwritten notes I couldn’t wait to work on this project!
We had a great team on hand with Erin, owner of BerinMade as artistic director and Krissy who styled on set. I thought I’d share a few shots from the photoshoot and maybe channel Spring to arrive a bit sooner.
The theme for my week 3 shoot daily photo challenge was Perspective. I enjoyed looking for different view points, ones that I wouldn’t necessarily see if I weren’t actively seeking it. My motto for the last few days was look up, look down, look all around. It got me a little dizzy but was well worth the effort
It’s no secret that I am a big fan of Dr. Junger’s Clean Program detox. So much so that I dedicated 4 blog posts that explained what it is, why I decided to endure 21 days of eating clean, what the results were and I also shared some of my favorite recipes. You can access these old posts here:
Since my first Clean detox, I basically reverted back to my normal eating habits but have fitted in a one week cleanse here and there. Lately, I realized I’m due a full detox since the realities of a dark London winter has taken its toll on me, emotionally and physcially. My lack of energy was even more evident after lunch at around 2:30/3pm, where I consistently felt like I ran into a wall. It was time to make a few changes.

During week 2 of my shoot daily photo challenge I lacked a bit of motivation. My work schedule and dreary London weather is partly to blame but mostly I just couldn’t rally and spend an hour each day out in the cold. The silver lining for me is that I did actually take a photo each day and I tested other functionalities of my camera so… hoorah!
The theme of the week was Fill The Frame which is a great challenge for composition & styling/posing in particular. I had varying degrees of success with the theme so I might revisit it sometime soon. Here are the photos from the last 7 days:
Last November I had the pleasure of shooting some of the signature dishes at Golden Temple. The restaurant is an old Brookline institution, if you grew up in the area or went to a university in Boston chances are you’ve been there and had a scorpion bowl or three. In fact, of all the shoots I’ve done my friends were most excited about this commission. Continue reading Golden Temple photoshoot→
Rarely am I ever fully surprised. But on Christmas morning I unwrapped two gifts that rendered me completely speechless. In one hand I was holding on to a Sony FE 35mm lens and the other clutched the Sony A7r camera. I couldn’t speak in complete sentences for a good five minutes afterwards.
