I was told by several people a long time ago that there was some very firm rules about food photography and one of them was, never I repeat NEVER use blue or green backgrounds because it was really bad for the food.
The White Guide Nordic has just released their top restaurants in the Nordic countries.
Well sometimes it takes a long time between postings but that usually means that I am busy with other things.
Just finished some images for one of the oldest and most renowned fine dining restaurants in Iceland.
The Bocuse d´Or competition is basically the World Championships in fine dining cooking and I have had the privilege to photograph the Icelandic contender now for three times, I can only hope that this time it is three times lucky and I hope Viktor Örn Andrésson will end up on the podium. Here are some of the images that I did for him.
Stereotypes of fishery, specifically in Iceland will probably involve silent macho men going about their business and slicing up fish wearing orange rainwear but Marz Seafood is something as refreshing as an all female company that is run by silent women slicing up fish wearing orange rainwear 😉 .
The Icelandic chef Gísli Matthías Auðunsson (Slippurinn and Matur og Drykkur) is again taking his food outside of Iceland. This time it is London that gets to sample the cooking of the north.
He is running a popup in London at the Carousel for two weeks and is an event that should not be missed.
The chefs and restaurants of Reykjavik is getting an increasing reputation both nationally and internationally and the magazine Gourmet decided to write about some of the golden nuggets you can find around town today and I had the pleasure to photograph it all. Swedish Gourmet in in my opinion one of the best looking food magazines in the world and it is a pleasure to work with them.
When you are busy you sometimes forget to show what you have been up to lately.
