What camera equipment do you use?
I have recently started using the exceptional Canon R5, although the majority of my food photography has been shot on my older Canon 6D. My camera is usually fitted with my favourite food photography lens, Canon’s 100mm f2.8L macro lens, allowing razor sharp focus for small details, producing brilliant bokeh and capturing light perfectly. I often use my Canon 50mm f1.4 for aerial food photography as it allows a wider angle than can be achieved with a 100mm lens. I shoot both freehand and with my camera mounted from a tripod in low light settings or with self-timer to achieve action shots.
Who eats all your baked goods?
Funnily enough, this is one of my most frequently asked questions! I usually share my sweet treats with my family, friends and colleagues, who happily devour them and provide me with invaluable feedback in recipe development.
Where are your recipes from?
My recipes have lovingly been developed from a variety of old-fashioned favourite childhood cookbooks, popular bakeries, patisseries, trendy food bloggers and celebrity chefs. Each recipe’s inspirations and origins are usually provided in the introduction or credits of each post.
May I order a cake from you?
I love baking cakes for friends and family but unfortunately, it is not feasible for me to bake event cakes regularly on a larger scale. If you are baking a cake for an event using one of my recipes and would like any further advice, please feel free to comment on the recipe post or use my Contact page to get it touch. Alternatively, depending on your location, I may be able to provide recommendations on where you can purchase a delicious cake for your next event.
May I use your images on my website, blog, social media or in any other form?
I appreciate your support and interest in my photography, however the use of any of the images contained in this blog is not permitted without consent. If you wish to use an image, please use my Contact page to request permission and I will be in touch as soon as possible. If you follow me on Instagram and wish to repost an image there, please either contact me directly through social media or use my Contact page to request permission with thanks.
Where do you source your beautiful servingware, ceramics and napery?
Everywhere! I love ceramics, and particularly enjoy supporting local and emerging artisans. The majority of pieces in my collection have been purchased myself for personal use, and happily feature at many an afternoon tea at home with loved ones. Over the course of blogging and social media interaction, I have established relationships and collaborated with many local designers, and as such, there are a few pieces in my collection that have been received as gifts or samples. Any paid sponsored content or affiliate links are clearly identified in each post and all opinions expressed on this website are my own.
I’d love to work with you, what services do you offer and how can I get in touch?
I specialise in sweet food photography and recipe development, and particularly love to create seasonal recipes with Australian ingredients, and work with local artisans. I’ve been delighted to work extensively with Harris Farm Markets, Australian Macadamias and Marimekko, and have collaborated on successful campaigns and workshops with a variety of clients including The Essential Ingredient, Jocelyn’s Provisions, Kim Wallace Ceramics and Maxwell and Williams. If you’d like to work with me, I’d love to hear from you, head to my Contact page to get in touch.
