Have had the pleasure of photographing a couple of well known chef’s recently, Josh Emett who works for Gordon Ramsay, and Frank Camorra the creator of the fabulous Movida who is a bit of a Melbourne food icon.
Whilst I imagine photographing Gordon Ramsay would be a stressful, expletive laden frenzy of a shoot, photographing one of his proteges Josh Emett was lovely. Josh has returned to Australia to head up Gordon Ramsay’s first Australian retaurants – maze and maze grill, at the brand new Crown Metropol in Melbourne. I really liked the graphical nature if this image of Josh, photographed for The Age newspaper during construction of the new restaurant.
Frank was photographed as part of a promotional piece for the Melbourne Food & Wine Festival and was extremely gracious as we worked our way through to a final image. Frank has a lovely quiet dignity which I enjoyed working with. Having been a Movida fan since first tasting that wonderful anchovy with smoked tomato sorbet I recently visited Frank’s newest venue, Movida Aqui, a larger funky bistro styled operation that has the great advantage of doing paella. I can report back that not only was the paella fabulous but the anchoa are better than I remember! A couple of combo pics that I liked from the shoot.
