Tom Aikens

Tom Aikens

Was summoned to London this week to shoot for Tom Aikens.  Boarding the Sleeper train at Bodmin Parkway, I squeezed down the small corridor and into my cabin.  Its a great way to get to London from Cornwall and means that I can take all the kit I can carry (quite a bit) allowing me to shoot a food or interior job without compromise. After closing the door to his Chelsea restaurant last year, he has just re-opened with an elegant new interior and a truly beautiful menu. The restaurant website makes really good use of the shots, and looks the nuts on a big monitor full screen. Really pleased the shoot was such a success as going back to Toms other Restaurant Toms Kitchen next month to do a presentation on food photography for social media at London Social Media Week. Public speaking – what am I thinking?
