Kirstie Young Photography

About Me

Kirstie Young is a Bristol photographer and stylist specialising in food in all its diversities – from shooting magazine features & creating advertisements, to capturing natural looking portraits of chefs & covering prestigious culinary events, and everything in between. She works both from her studio in North Bristol, and out on location in Bristol, Bath, the Cotswolds and beyond.

Her background as a filmmaker influences her photography hugely, and her style is all about colour, composition and form.

Kirstie shoots for editorial, commercial and private clients and welcomes commissions and assignments.

I’ve worked with Kirstie on a multi-issue photo-led series for the past seven years. She’s creative, organised and adaptable – so pretty much a dream contributor to my magazine. Each year we plan the features, then she styles and shoots the seasonal pics and never misses a deadline.  My picture editor and I enjoy working with her very much.

Kirstie is a dream to work with. She’s warm and friendly, always happy to rework shots to fit the brief – or the whim of the cook – more closely, and efficiently delivering exquisite photographs.

Kirstie is a truly inspirational photographer. She has been to Vale House Kitchen numerous times, is always very professional and comes with a huge wealth of photography knowledge. It is hard to find someone that takes a better picture, especially of food, which is no mean feat. We would 100% recommend her to anyone that needs a specialist in this field.
