‘I love Christmas,’ said Katie, ‘ so I was utterly delighted to be involved in the Sainsburys Christmas campaign.
Katie and her crew embraced the challenge of creating festive cheer on an industrial scale in July in a studio in Shoreditch with energy and determination, cooking, styling and shooting scores of dishes. They produced an amazing set of images that put a twist on the more traditional shots of Christmas fayre – all about food that has been enjoyed!
‘I was blessed to have a great team of people to work with,’ Katie added,’ my old friend David Morgan and my assistant Lou, who came over from Sydney for the first part of the shoot, and then Jo Harris and Julia Azzarello who took over for part two.’

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

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.
