Professional Food Photography – Robin Goodlad
Hi, I’m Robin, a professional Dorset food photographer. I love photography and I love food, in equal amounts. When I was unsure of a career path between the two, synergy made sense (with my experience on Masterchef influencing me along the way), and food photography is now a huge part of what I do, with a unique understanding of the craft of making food look as good as it should taste, and the alchemy of invoking hunger in a beautifully crafted image. I am personally a great believer in provenance, and grow, catch and rear my own food wherever I can.
I am immensely proud to have been one of the winners in the world’s largest food photography competition, the Pink Lady Food Photographer of the Year, in 2016, as well as a finalist each year since. I am also a regular contributor and columnist for Menu Dorset Magazine. I am also privileged to work alongside some amazing and well known chefs in their kitchens, showcasing their food at it’s very best, whether in Dorset, the South west, or London. I love immersing myself in the energy of a busy kitchen, and there is so much more to capture than the food itself, the people, the venue, the atmosphere, which is where my skills as a documentary photographer come in to play to diversify my portfolio.
I will consider any type of food photography commission, from stock portraits of food, cooking in action, food in the field, or on location. Whilst I travel with a full set up of lighting, and a quirky and diverse selection of props, I am not constrained to a studio, and can set up a great shoot anywhere. Whether a hotel or restaurant portfolio, or a wild food shoot in a forest, I specialise in exceptional food photography that makes food look as good as it is going to taste.
My work has been published in various magazines, and I am currently working on several exciting projects, including cookbooks, portraiture, and the science of food.
If you are looking for something that little bit more creative, please get in touch, I’d love to talk about working with you.
