Behind the camera : Food Photographer J.Ph Baudey
We both share the same passion(s)! It’s not just about the food, it’s also about providing that exceptional service to our customers. Whether we are growers, producers, manufacturers, chefs or photographers! - it’s passion! I would love to sit down with you and listen to what your visions are – and how my camera will catch them. I hope you enjoy the images and they inspire you.
Born in the South West of France and now living in the South West of England, I trained as a chef at the prestigious Catering School of Toulouse (LTH). After completing my Baccalauréat, I began to travel throughout Europe leading kitchens from trendy Tapas Bars to Five Star Hotels. I spent all those years with a knife in one hand and a camera in the other! Chef and photographer have been the two main occupations for exploring my epicurean curiosity, and that duality of approaches has greatly influenced each other.
Photography brought me much more aesthetic rigour and attention to detail in my cooking, while my deep knowledge of the food industry provided my photography with an invaluable understanding of the variety of complex, technical needs, both culinary and visual, that my clients would require.
Finally, Faydit Photography was born, created to specialise in commercial photography and graphic design for the food industry – from field to plate. Being a creative medium, photography can be approached in a plethora of ways. Personally, I love to use natural light. It enables me to find the best ways to capture the most delicate, nuanced and textured means of visual expression – an organic, authentic feeling. However, other idioms are possible and workable depending on your circumstances and requirements.
