Olly says… There’s a nice big win­dow at Silo [the Brighton res­tau­rant where the shoot took place], which acts as a gor­geously large light source, and just needs bal­anc­ing with a re­flec­tor or two. You don’t need a big stu­dio to take good photos – a win­dow and the sun will do just as well. And it’s a toss up be­tween styling and light­ing in terms of which is more im­por­tant for food pho­tog­ra­phy.

You do need good pro­duce to pho­to­graph. The food has to be in per­fect con­di­tion and look beau­ti­ful. If you have a great lo­ca­tion, as we did, it’s good to in­clude that (or a con­stituent part of it) in the photo. We used the serv­ing plate made from re­cy­cled car­rier bags in our shot, be­cause it was at the heart of Silo’s eth­i­cal ethos.
