A couple of months ago, a team from Delicious magazine came to visit. They were here to work on a winter feature for the August issue which goes on sale today!
Photographer Mark Roper, the magazine’s Art Director Shannon Keogh and food stylist David Morgan were such fun to work with, all so enthusiastic and keen to get the very best shots – and we were blown away by how they work together to produce such beautiful images. Mark risked life and (burnt) limbs to get just the right shot of the venison on its hot plate. David was an excellent ‘stage mom’, coaxing Alice to keep smiling as she stood in the freezing cold holding her cake until the light/composition/everything was perfect. And Shannon kept it all on track, holding light reflectors, giving gentle direction and loads of bright ideas.
Just some of the beautiful props David brought along for the shoot (I was kind of hoping he’d forget a few bits and pieces, no luck sadly).
Thank you so much to everyone at Delicious, mostly Food Director Valli Little who first approached us with this idea. It’s pretty exciting for Tim and I to see our Mandagery Creek Venison, literally from paddock to plate, featured in a magazine like this and we are very grateful.
This issue is also celebrating the Delicious Produce Awards which have just been announced (full list of winners can be found here), talk about being in good company!
Here above and below are some pictures I took of the shoot as it progressed. And also a snapshot of the feature itself. For more – please grab a copy yourself. It’s a beautiful issue and we are proud to be part of it.

Squeal!!! This looks gorgeous Sophie, straight to the shops for me tomorrow to grab a copy!
I would have tried to sneak that gorgeous copper pot away…! Looks like a lovely shoot. Isn’t it amazing how much work goes into creating a scene that appears effortless and candid.
