Then there’s finding all the props, cooking the food and the final challenge of making what you’ve prepared look great once you get into a studio, a cramped kitchen or even the great outdoors.

It’s the tiny adjustments that deliver us to our goal—altering the lighting just a bit, changing the spacing in between a wine glass and a napkin, swapping out one coloured linen for another—until you just know, yes, that’s it, that’s the shot.
