Studio in a time of lockdown

As I write, we are still in lockdown.  We have been since March 23rd, and it's starting to feel strangely normal.  I have a new rhythm, as do my family, which is slower for sure but also in so many ways, much fuller.  There is no rush to get out of the house in the...

Food The last ten days have been crazy busy.  Two major food festivals and the BBC's prestigious Food & Farming Awards, there's been a lot to keep up with!.  There was a fair bit of heroic double-festivalling (Is that a verb? Should be ...) by some of the...

Citrus & Salt  This week has been all about fast food.  Not the fried chicken, cheap burger or doughy pizza variety, but food that can be made in under 15 mins, after rushing back from a shoot and trying to get a meal on the table while juggling homework, feeding...

The last week of the long summer holidays is always bittersweet.  I look forward to a return to some kind of routine, and to stopping the crazy juggle of work and childcare after seven weeks, but I'm also sad that there are no more long lazy days in the park or beach...

I love meeting new people, and as a photographer you get to stick your nose into all kinds of interesting worlds.  Without a doubt, one of the most fascinating places is a professional kitchen where some of the most interesting, driven, talented, sleep deprived, hard...

What my clients say

"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."

Lisa Sykes
Simple Things magazine editor

"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."

Xanthe Clay
Food Writer, The Telegraph

"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."
