Back in late summer I was commissioned by the Guild of Master Craftsmen to do the photography for their Superfood Christmas Magazine (yup, shooting Christmas images in the summer – the strange life of a food photographer!).
A few pics from a recent summer commercial photo-shoot, featuring a gorgeous iced lavender cake and an incredibly stunning country house garden. Late afternoon sunlight in mid summer is just so perfect!
