Some new work shot for the fantastic youth homelessness charity Centrepoint, commissioned via The Good Agency to promote the launch of the “Big Broth” event this November.
We shot a mix of still life food and natural lifestyle shots - working with real people not models, who kept smiling despite wearing autumnal knitwear on a 31 degree day at the peak of this summer’s heatwave!
The still life shots showcase the hilarious “soup smiles” that you create when hosting a Big Broth soup party, one of the rare occasions as an adult when playing with your food is acceptable…..head over to the Centrepoint website to get involved.

Lovely to be able to share some of the stills from a global image library that I shot at the end of last year for Shell - showcasing their forecourt food and drink offer.
