KZN Food Photography – Hartford House

As much as I love photography, and am passionate about making beautiful images, I also love fine cuisine.

My journey with food and photography started a few years back when I did the food and interior photography for the new Bread & Butter Coffee Shop in Cape Town.

Since then I’ve dabbled here and there, not really focussing on food as much as trying to establish my own unique style.

So, when Duncan Bruce from Hartford House phoned me up and invited me to spend the afternoon at the gorgeous Hartford House off the Hlatikulu road, near Mooi River,  I realised how much I really really love photographing food.  Although how could one not – in such sublime surroundings.  Chef “Tijne” had used the theme of “seasons” for his dishes,  so I decided the best way to capture the essence  of each dish, was to shoot outside, in natural light,using the elements I found around me.  Fish ponds, sun dials, veggie garden, stone pathways –    all worked like a charm.

Here are some of the images and a few of the actual grand dame herself.

Thanks Duncan, for giving me the opportunity.  I sincerely look forward to many more.

Food Photography | Bread & Butter | Sunningdale

A new love affaire with food photography

Food photography has become a new passion of mine.  Hardly surprising considering that I love food and I love photography <3.

I was recently commissioned to do the photography for Bread & Butter – the rather magnificent little coffee shop located in the Sunningdale Lifestyle Centre.

Brain child of the extremely clever and passionate Eileen, assisted by her very hardworking and perpetual food tasting husband – Stephen.  Bread & Butter is so worth a visit, no matter where you are.

The food is unashamedly wholesome and home made.  The Barista knows his stuff and is happy to serve a double shot for anyone needing a little wake up call.  My absolute fave on the savoury side is the Chicken Livers – so bad I know – but so terribly yummy.  Their salads are also to-die-for.  Crisp, fresh and interesting with a delish homemade sauce to lather it in (or not!).  There is puhlenty of temptation for the sweeter tooth – way too much to list here.  Perhaps its wiser to pop in and sample their fare yourself (Lemon meringue………just saying).

And, aside from their delicious culinary temptations ~ they have also an array of hand-selected (and reasonably priced) giftware.  Beautiful ceramics made by Hayley Seton-Smith, beautiful goodies for around the house and lovely stuff to spoil yourself or a friend with.  The sweetie selection gets my husband everytime.  Nougat and chocolate whirls!  OMW.
