Last month I was commissioned by luxury hotel chain, Malmaison to photograph items from their restaurants new menu which centres around the brands new angus steak labeled as ‘Oh Angus’
I had a great time working with the chefs and management. The shoot itself took place at the chains Birmingham hotel which is located inside The Mailbox.
Here are some of my favourites… try not to drool, I know it’s kinda hard!
… now for you camera geeks out there I have listed the equipment used below.
Camera – Nikon D3X

Lighting – Elinchrom Style RX 600 / 600
Accessories – Silver and white reflector to bounce both natural and flash light.
I have recently been commissioned to get lots of key landmark images from around the country, I know a little different from what i have been doing recently with Fashion and Music sometimes the two combined.
I have only been to a few locations at the moment due to poor weather conditions and thankfully there isn;t a pressing deadline on this job… (theres a first for everything)
There is one building however I have always really loved in Birmingham and that is The Mailbox… apart from it’s cool name it really is a stunning building as far as buildings are concerned. The Mailbox also has a vast amount of eateries situated at the back on the canal.
