Fresh Banter with Giles Christopher, the food, drink and hospitality photographer


Giles and I met many years ago through his wife and business partner Abi, and since then we have all worked on a lot of jobs together and have spent a lot of time together socially chatting about business and life.


He got some great advice from his Dad about offering to do things nobody else likes to do at work and making himself a valuable team member and sound found he had multiple job offers …


He’s run his own business for over 20 years and we talk about how basic business skills should be part of the curriculum for everyone nowadays


He shares about the prep that goes into shoots and how technology has changed the job so much and how much time photographers now spend in post production too. And about the sheer weight of kit that he takes to ‘location’ shoots too.


Giles loves tech and is always pushing himself to learn new ways of doing things , or master new equipment and he also talks about keeping up with and ahead of that if you can


A really interesting insight into all that food and drink photography involves, and some great tips for podcasts and business blogs to watch out for too.


I’m really pleased we managed to book Giles for a chat in this last episode of series 3…
