Photography and Web Design for Restaurants

Hello. I'm Simon Mees, a photographer and web designer with a passion for great food. I'd be excited to work alongside your marketing team and your chefs to capture the essence of the food you serve in your restaurant.

I can also provide you with high quality images of your restaurant and your staff at work in the kitchen.

I charge £35 per hour and need an hour to set up my lighting and cameras.

If your website needs updating why not ask me for a quotation for a new website? Here is a link to a sample restaurant website I have created with some of the photographs I've taken.

I have been privileged to work with some of London's finest chefs and many of the photos in my portfolio are of their creations.

Ideally I like to have ten minutes with each dish but I can spend just a couple of minutes per dish on their journey out from the kitchen. This would allow us to capture a wide range of dishes during service and would involve no waste. Obviously I'm unlikely to find the very best angles for each dish in this limited time but you should be pleased with the results regardless.

I can work on a single table in the corner of your restaurant or in any spare space you have. Alternatively I can come and work with your chef when the restaurant is closed.
