Photographed at the No 9 restaurant in Stratford upon Avon. My background with Food Photography goes back to my days as a student when one day a week I was able to study at the studio of Cadbury's in Bourneville, Birmingham. It was there that I was able to learn my still life and food photography craft from Masters . It was a possible career path as I love food and photographing its preparation and then capturing the creations of great chefs and food stylists,always a pleasure. During my career I have shot editorial food photography as well as advertising with food as part of the brief ,

    Restaurant in Stratford upon Avon, Wayne Thomson Chef & Patron is one of the midlands if not the UK's finest - IMHO. In the Kitchen at No 9 the great masterpieces are created in this creative hub.The technique of using mono and colour photography mix is a useful tool to highlight the food and retain the enviroment of a kitchen that are often cluttered and distracting .
