Wow this feels like a very long time ago!
The Palms Restaurant was the very first of the 52 project that Stu and I shot. Since then, we’ve shot approximately 42 Restaurants…. 10 more to go before the big 52! I can now say that it’s been an incredible experience, something that I’m very lucky to have had the opportunity to do.
I get asked a lot of questions about the project, ranging from ‘Which is your favourite?’ (of which there are several, if you ask nicely) to ‘Do you get sick of eating out all the time?’. If you’d asked me the latter in the first 6 months, I would not have hesitated in saying ‘NEVER’. Now….. I’m all about the steamed rice and broccoli. Give me a piece of marmite toast and I’m a happy camper.
In saying that, there are still a lot of amazing meals I remember. And I’m pretty sure I’ll always remember the happiness I felt in starting my first proper food photography contract at The Palms, and the delicious smoked salmon with horseradish cream that was served to us on that cold winter’s night.
