We are delighted to announce that Katie Quinn Davies, the award winning photographer, author and food blogger, has joined Shoot.

Originally from Dublin, Katie has been living in Australia for the last few years working as a photographer specialising in food, travel and lifestyle.  Her acclaimed food blog ‘What Katie Ate’, for which she develops, cooks, styles and shoots every recipe, is hugely successful with over 250,000 followers worldwide.  In 2012 the first ‘What Katie Ate’ cookbook was published and became an immediate bestseller around the world.  And in 2013 Katie won the prestigious John Beard Awards for best photography and best general cookbook and published a follow up ‘What Katie Ate At The Weekend’.

As you can see her pictures are beautiful, with a rich textured style that has won her a lot of followers and plenty of clients including a major British supermarket that hired her to shoot their 2015 Christmas food campaign.  But more of that later..

Nigella – one of those rare beings who are so famous they only need one name – teamed up once more with Jay Brooks to shoot a feature on ‘her life through food’  for The Guardian Weekend.

Subtitled ‘I eat, therefore I am’, the feature is timed to coincide with the launch of Ms Lawson’s new book ‘Simply Nigella: Feel Good Food’.  It, the feature not the book, charts the development of Nigella’s tastes from the discovery of the avocado in the 1970’s to the rediscovery of the pomegranate in the present.  Nigella, the food and the feature in general all look fabulous but the star of the show has to be the 1980’s beige leather jacket!  See above.

Stylist (clothes and props): Mika Handley.

Home economists: Anna Jones and Emily Ezekiel.

Stylist (food props): Wei Tang.

Hair and makeup: Tricia Woolston using Sisley Skincare, Charlotte Tilbury and Redken. Assistant: Nadia Atinbas

Lee Evans biography, The Life of Lee, features a portrait by Ray Burmiston on its cover.  Ray has worked with Lee many times before but their efforts usually have Lee underwater, flying through the air or smashing through panes of glass.  However, this portrait, as you can see, is an altogether calmer piece of work –  simple, direct and touching on the inner Lee.  Life of Lee is out now published by Penguin Books.
