Hi, I’m Debbie Jones.

I’m a trained chef.

Deli co-owner.

Professional Photographer for over 10 years.

A lifetime lover of enjoying great food.

I love working with independent food businesses as I love working with people who share the passion of creating the best they can and putting all their effort and love into producing great products. I love that I can make a difference in how people discover their amazing and much-loved products with that first view, that first attention grabbing image.

I’m all about making great food look great. About capturing the process of creating the food, I’m not about making bad or processed food look like something it’s not. My approach is natural and realistic.

I love natural light. A great food picture is about harnessing the chemistry of light and subject.

So don’t hire me to take pictures of your wedding, kids or animals (…..don’t hire a wedding, kids or animals photographer to take pictures of your wonderful food products)!

I see food from a foodie point of view. I focus on the food not the plate.

We’ve been fortunate enough to eat in some of the greatest restaurants, all over the world, but it’s the small independents, the places with multiple generations of chefs, the places where you have no expectation and you are wowed with flavours, the passion, and the fresh ingredients. Those places excite me the most.

I’m professionally accredited by the British Institute of Professional Photography.

My food style…

My guilty pleasure

Without a second thought it has to be really good cheese. Perl Las is still my all time favourite – so it’s just as well that I get to taste so many different cheese, all the time with my hubby Simon at our own deli in the Forest of Dean🙂

My carte blanche meal

Tasting menu concept or tapas – lots of small plates, different tastes and textures, informal where you can take a break in between and relax and then go back and eat more when you want to.

Where I love to eat

Somewhere relaxed and informal where it’s okay to take all the time in the world (with no pressure or distractions)!

My guilty pleasure.
