Brudenell Hotel – Suffolk Food Photography

Suffolk Food Photography doesn’t get much better than this! Nestled away at the quiet end of the seafront in the quaint Suffolk seaside town Aldeburgh is the Brudenell Hotel.  It’s literally a stone throw of a drive from London. Leave the bustling capital and in under two hours, you’re “Everything seems so much more laid back and even the stylish food photography that we shot at the Brudenell has an almost leisurely appearance as the live ingredients were assembled on nickel platters, stripping the food back to showcase its local heritage and a provenance. Fresh and ethically-sourced fish is also one of the core values of the Brudenell’s own Seafood and Grill restaurant, with a menu packed with fresh local fish, seafood and free-range meats prepared by a creative team of chefs. Shooting Suffolk Food Photography for an award-winning fish restaurant is genuinely a pleasure. Who wouldn’t want to photograph artwork on a plate?

For this particular Suffolk Food Photography shoot, the Banc Creative Team decided to adopt the most natural approach possible, shooting imagery using only natural lighting and dispensing with any artificial distractions. It was an important factor in retaining many of the deconstructed dishes and even the backdrop to the images was improvised using a wide window ledge overlooking the ocean. The paint had a hint of distress to it, which added a massive amount of character to the dishes. Blanc Creative have built a steadily increasing reputation for their Norfolk Food Photography and to break into Suffolk Food Photography with such a prestigious location is wonderful.

The 44-room luxury 4* hotel has been a fixture of the front since the 1880s, and despite having been renovated in 2010 it retains its Victorian charm, partly thanks to the huge bay windows in the bedrooms. Our deluxe room has a huge double bed and a sofa facing the bay window framing the sea view, while the bathroom has a free-standing bath and separate shower, typical of Aldeburgh’s unique brand of quaint luxury. There are a few thoughtful touches too, such as two big glass bottles of water – still and sparkling – refilled each morning and a basket full of books about the local area.

Fresh and ethically-sourced fish is also one of the core values of the Brudenell’s own Seafood and Grill restaurant, with a menu packed with fresh local fish, seafood and free-range meats prepared head chef Tyler Torrance. If you fancy something a bit different, the Brudenell’s sister hotel The White Lion – just a 15-minute walk along the beautiful seafront – also boasts a fantastic restaurant, the Brasserie Bleue. The brasserie has a more back to basics approach, with the relaxed feel of a very good gastropub.

School Dinner Photography. Why professional imagery is so important!

School Dinner Photography

 

When you think about Food Photography, School Dinner Photography may not be the first thing that spring to mind. If you’re a specialist catering business providing over 25,000 primary school meals every day in Norfolk and Suffolk, then professional Food Photography forms an incredibly valuable part of branding. It reenforces food ethos for high-quality, local ingredients freshly prepared by happy and well-trained Catering Teams. Our own Photography ethos is one of working extremely closely with our clients. We always strive to deliver High Quality, affordable Photography that continually evolves. Any Commercial Photography should develop to reflect the changing needs of a business to keep content fresh and relevant. How many times do you visit a website repeatedly only to find that imagery is stagnant and the content simply doesn’t change from year to year.

We have been specialising in School Dinner Photography  for around Five Years, across not only Primary School, School Dinner Photography, but for all levels of education through to High School, Sixth Form and Colleges in Norfolk and Suffolk. You can find examples of our School Food Photography.

School Dinner Photography at primary school level has a very different set of values to Restaurant styled Food Photography. Meals are produced with great care to ensure children have choice and variety with interesting dishes that reflect the changing season. Menus are composed with input from Norfolk Healthy Schools, the Children’s Food Trust. Young children need to identify School Dinner Photography, recognising the food that they will be eating. You need to make imagery vibrant, modern and attractive, but the key is identifiable food. Children need to know what they eating and school food can and is delivered to pupils with care and attention.

Primary School Dinner Photography incorporates seasonal changes for Spring / Summer / Autumn Winter along with Food Photography that encourages independent choice by pupils.

The Evolution of School Dinner Food Photography

The evolution of School Dinner Food Photography has moved a long way in a very short space of time. Below are examples of the type of change that makes continually evolving Food Photography so important. Only a few years ago, School Diners were relatively straight forward, shot on plain backgrounds from a generic  angled perspective. The move to hero shots from above was a direct response to the changing style of modern Food Photography where the lastest hesian background has launched School Dinner Photography into 2018 with natural vibrancy and a full perspective of the food served to pupils.

If you run a professional restaurant, the importance of your menu is something you will be all too familiar with. It is the first introduction to your food that a customer gets and having professional photographs can make a world of difference.  How many times have you opened a recipe book and avoided those which didn’t show you the finished product? It may have something to do with the fact that visuals are processed 60,000 times faster than text and quickly affect our emotions and more importantly, decision-making. “People will buy food with their eyes” and in 2015, the impact of social media, online presence and multi platform advertising opportunities, photography has never played such a huge part in the food industry. Many people like to see imagery of their meals before they order. It removes apprehensions about what it may look like and the appeal of ordering an item that looks fabulous makes for an exciting dining experience.

Using an experienced Professional Food Photography service with a proven track record ion food is the only way  to ensure professional food images. Many photographs will claim to shoot almost anything and everything, but in such a competitive business, a Do-It-Youself approach or “my mates mate has a good camera approach will often result in  a”Buy Cheap… Buy Twice” result and inferior imagery.

Blanc Creative have an extensive portfolio of professional food photography showcasing work across a wide range of clients. From Four Star Seafood Restaurants to School Dinner Menus and numerous Independent Businesses,  Blanc Creative offer an exceptionally competitive pricing structure for your restaurant food photography and delivering exceptionally high standards of work.
