A ray of sunshine in these strange and uncertain times. Six of my images have been shortlisted in three different categories of the prestigious Pink Lady Food Photographer of the Year - and, out of them, two have reached the final stage of the competition!

Due to the current situation, the wonderful Awards Evening Reception at the Mall Galleries in London is unfortunately cancelled, but there will be virtual celebrations instead. The 2020 winners will be announced during an online Awards Evening presented by Blur's Alex James on Tuesday 28 April at 8pm (BST) - my first virtual party is coming up and you are all invited. You can sit back and enjoy the show on their Facebook page or on their YouTube channel. Facebook friends, I will be hosting a watch party on my profile as well. Save the date and be ready with a glass of bubbles!
Join the party! Thrilled to see that Pink Lady Food Photographer of the Year chose one of my images to capture the party spirit on their homepage!
I am over the moon to be part of such a terrific selection for the second year in a row - the 2020 shortlist can be viewed here.
Four out of six images were taken on two magazine assignments - the pictures from Siberia were part of a reportage for Dove Viaggi, while the ones from Trentino are part of a feature for Food and Travel which is due to come out soon. A massive thanks to all my wonderful editors for the confidence and trust they have shown in me. Can't wait to be able to pack up my gear and be on the road again.
