TSC Westlands 2 Feb 2017-1373-EditWe are bombarded with images from so many sources that, as a business, the need for quality content is increasingly important in our visual world.

Creative about Cuisine specialises in food and product photography providing images for social media, websites, magazines, newsletters, books, packaging and more.  With Russell’s background as a chef, he brings an innate understanding of food and creative flair to any project. A wide selection of props, backgrounds and surfaces along with a well equipped studio and in-house post production complete the package.

Russell has recently finished shooting all the imagery for his first book, over a hundred photographs in total. Well Seasoned, written with co-author Jon Haley, will be published in March 2018.

Choosing a photographer to work with is very much about personal preference and a connection, and there are as many different styles of photography as there are cooking.

Please take a look through the gallery below and do get in touch to talk about your photography needs.

adobe-certified-associate-in-visual-design-using-adobe-photoshop-2I recently completed a five day Photoshop course that included sitting my Adobe Certified Associate exam and I am delighted to have passed. The learning never stops, which is one of the huge joys of both cooking and photography.

Post production is a hugely important part of any photography project and this is an indication of the in-house quality we are able to offer.


If you are in Dorset, in particular, and need high quality food photography, please get in touch.

Food Photographer of the Year



“I contacted Russell having seen his photography on line and on our friend ‘Twitter’ and he cordially agreed to come over to the Llawnroc and help me create a portfolio of pictures that we could use to promote the hotel.

What can I say…. Russell was a perfect gentleman assisting us with both presentation of our food and giving us little tips here and there on cooking techniques, drawing on his wealth of experience. The Pictures are amazing, Russell’s eye for detail and dedication shone through throughout the weekend. He even got up at 4.00am to catch the sunrise, and achieved some amazing results. Dodging seagulls whilst capturing some food shots outside was a constant theme, and added to the fun of the day!

I would highly recommend Russell to anyone who was looking to create a portfolio of pictures of their business and really appreciate all the advice and help that Russell brought to the table throughout the weekend. I wish Russell every success in his new venture, and look forward to working with him again very soon. Perhaps a day in the kitchen with us too, Russell I know, found it very strange not being behind the stoves over our weekend, a place close to his heart.”
