In May 2016 Julia Davies, who along with her husband Nick, run The Cottage In The Wood in Malvern Wells, asked me to take food photographs for their new restaurant menu – freshly prepared food, directly from the kitchen under indirect natural light. They immediately began using the photographs on social media, and have since had me back for two more sessions as they add new items to the menu.
In 2017 Julia asked me back to take architectural photography and lifestyle photography of their redecorated bar & restaurant, as well as more food photography for their exciting menu.
2016 – present
“It was a pleasure working with Paul. Having rarely worked with professional photographers in the past I didn’t know how to set up the day to make sure it all went smoothly but Paul asked all the right questions so I could set everything up in advance to make sure we got the most out of the time – which we did!
“Paul arrived early to ensure everything was ready (very much appreciated) and was able to get on with the photo shoot as soon as the chef started sending out the dishes. Paul was cool, calm and relaxed and a pleasure to work with. We are really pleased with the final product and would use Paul again and would recommend him to anyone.”
