Illustrations for M&S food photoshoot

I am absolutely delighted to share one of my favourite jobs this year; a collaborative project with Marks and Spencer, where I worked with photographer, Jonathan Gregson to produce an illustrated, food photography story.  

Marks and Spencer are renowned for their great food photography, so I was already excited by the brief.  But, to make it even better, the team wanted to use real illustrations on paper, rather than adding them into the photographs digitally afterwards.  It's not the easiest way of working, but I knew that the results would be amazing.  It gave me full control on the composition of the images, and meant that it would have an authentic look.

And, the best bit, I got to go along and take part in the photoshoot with the fantastic team of photographers, photography assistants, editors, chefs, food stylists, prop stylists and productions managers! 

Here's some pictures from behind the scenes.

And the final pictures, as shown on M&S's website:

I'd love to hear what you think.
