One of the many things I’ve learned about writing my books has been about the importance of good photography, and a good photographer! I was lucky enough to be able to hand pick my photographer so I could choose James: someone local, and someone I liked – which is very necessary as you spend a lot of time together, and it gets exhausting which can test any relationship!
Luckily, James and I created a great working partnership, he quickly understood what I wanted and that I wanted the photographs in my books to look like my bread, with no tricks, no fake finishes, just my bread in all its glory, and we quickly became an efficient working team.
He arrived with lots of kit and completely took over my home, which disturbed Bob, my dog, somewhat, but it worked perfectly to be in my space, using my kitchen and all of the equipment and things that I use daily for making sourdough.
It’s not every day you have a huge camera hanging off a tripod over your main working space!
I love the photographs James has produced, and hope you do too.
