Simon Hulstone has held a Michelin Star at The Elephant, Torquay since 2004. Not many Chefs can boast that! However, cooking is in his blood, having grown up helping his dad (also a professional Chef) in the kitchen from the age of fourteen and as his father always had jobs on offer, becoming a Chef was inevitable. His awards and achievements are far too numerous to list here but you can see them by clicking here.
I spent a couple of hours dodging torrential rain and storm force winds to shoot some portraits at nearby Beacon Cove and in the restaurant. One of my images has made the cover of Caterer magazine as well as a spread inside.
Here’s to another fifteen years and perhaps a much bigger mantlepiece!
The brief was to shoot two elements; the huddlebox which was in a dark area used for VR testing. This needed a little subtle lighting to lift the darker areas out of shadow and separate them from the dark background.
I had the pleasure recently of photographing James Wilkins of Wilks Restaurant, Bristol for Caterer Magazine.
