Faffing with a crayfish to get the photo right for Seafood Everyday

While flicking through my photos and sorting and backing them up, I love finding little series like this one of crayfish with a cheese sauce, to see how I faffed about to get the dish looking like I want it for the final photo to go in my book Seafood Everyday.

It is a lot of work -cooking, styling and photographing to get all 80 of the the recipe photos how I want them for the book and a endless hunt for new and unique props. I am currently loving all the handmade Tasmanian props I own or that are kindly lent to me for photos- pictured here from Sea Soul Studio and Linen from Yolanda Zarins, with a Ridgeline pottery plate.Β Self publishing a cookbook is a lot of work but it is also rewarding to be able to have full creative control over your book.

And the location photos are fun, Arwen and I had lots of fun setting up a breakfast at the tessellated Pavement in Eaglehawk Neck any excuse to drink lovely wine at 8am on a Monday morning!!
