From fully styled advertising food and drink shoots, to packaging, packshots and point of sale material, food photography is one of our favourite specialisms, and an area that we always enjoy working in.
Almost all photographers will get excited at the prospect of a food shoot – it’s a creative, technically challenging area that, when done well, can produce some incredibly emotive results. Andrew, one of our founders & director of photography, has been a specialist food photographer for more than 25 years. He can help you produce mouth watering images, for print, advertising & online as well as simple product & packaging packshots.
Andrew’s work was recently featured in Gastro Magazine’s Winter addition including his top ten tips for becoming an expert food photographer. Check it out in excerpts on our blog, or read the full article here.
Most of our product based food shoots will be done at our central Lewes studios. For jobs that need kitchens we have a number of options to work from including our home, a variety of professional kitchens and hire studios. Please talk to us in more detail about the nature of your project so that we can make the best recommendations for the job.
WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS THINK
See all our ratings on our reviews page
Extremely professional and friendly. As starting a new business, I was not too sure how to approach photo photography. The advice and communication was quick and consistent. Very satisfied with the end result and I am looking forward to future shoots.
We were very happy with our high quality photos. They were exactly what we were after and are now in use across our website, product card and ecommerce stores. Would be more than happy to use again in the future.
Great Service received and good quality photos.
Great service from this team. Photography firm is a professional
As a startup with an aggressive product road map, we needed an organisation that we could work with in tandem. Photography firm has fitted that bill for us and have shown flexibility in tailoring solutions to our needs. Great photography that has rocketed one of our products to no 1 best seller in the UK and another winning the Amazon choice badge for two months running. This is considering we currently only have three products and been trading for four months. Looking forward to a better year ahead!
Extremely satisfied with Helen and the team at Photography Firm. Their professionalism and attention to detail is second to none. Very happy indeed with the overall results and will be using them again for all other future work.
Andrew created author portraits for my books - I was hugely impressed by his professionalism, diligence and can-do, no-fuss attitude. I found his work both high quality and reasonably-priced, and would recommend his services without hesitation
The Photography Firm have supported us from the very start.. They have always done a great job for us and been supportive of us since our start up days. Now we have developed a solid and personal working relationship and we don't llok any further for our product pphotography.
I had been meaning to have the shirt's professionally photographed for the last 5 years, but never got round to it. I wish I had. The photo's have enhanced my website hugely and helped to increase like for like sales on last year.
Would highly recommend Helen and team.
I have worked with Andrew and Photography Firm for around 15 years and I have never been disappointed with their work. Andrew is creative and technically spot on so the work is of a consistently excellent standard. Andrew collaborates well with stylists and is open to ideas but if time is tight he will focus on getting the job completed on time and on budget.
The team have been amazing at capturing what we were looking for plus a whole lot more. We are a start up and needed a lot of guidance and handholding and the team were able to make our products shine the way we had hoped. I will work with Photography Firm again and again as we need more images over time.
"We approached Photography Firm with our product photography requirement as we were very impressed with the vast portfolio of work shown on their website.
Helen was extremely informative when we contacted Photography Firm and we swiftly setup a photo shoot. We were really pleased with the turnaround time for receiving our final cut-out photos and the professional finish they offer our website / product-launch.
Highly recommended, with thanks."
They listened to what I required, and using their knowledge helped fill in the blanks when I wasn't 100% sure what I wanted or needed
"Very helpful and friendly attitude. Generous with the time allowed although we probably overstepped the hour.
Very reasonable charges and very convenient for a non driver that the office was in the train station.
I was pleased with the photographs."
Helen and Andrew are extremely professional and courteous. Helen went out of her way to ensure we were satisfied with the images and final designs. Would recommend them without hesitation.
Great customer service and excellent quality photography.
I am a new online seller and knew little about product photography when I contacted Helen and Andy. From the outset they were incredibly helpful and seemed genuinely interested in my small business. I have been delighted with the exceptionally high quality of their work and their professionalism. Moreover they are a pleasure to deal with. I cannot recommend them more highly.
Very professional, excellent quality work. A pleasure to work with. They offer services other companies don't and go out of their way to make the customer satisfied. Would recommend highly.
Andrew and Helen did a large photography job for me - portraits of about 100 people spread over 17 locations in Sussex. Each one had depth, warmth and charm and arrived on time, on budget. I could not have been happier with the result.
We went to Photography Firm because we were having issues with the quality of our invisible mannequin images for press use. As a start up we have limited budgets, so we looked closely at some of the cheaper options out there, but in terms of quality there was simply no contest. Photography Firm's excellent work combined with their personable and efficient service means that we will definitely use them again and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to others.
I've worked with Photography Firm on 4 shoots in the last 6 months and I wouldn't use anyone else. Incredibly good at what they do, and very friendly to boot. I can't rate them highly enough.
The new website and re-branding of the company is excellent, beautiful photography by Andrew as always.
I will always recommend the services of The Photography Firm as they handle my commissions in an efficient and professional manner. Stunning results are always achieved!
This was my first experience with Photography Firm and my first experience of recognition as a Head Chef. Andrew the photographer made me feel very comfortable and it was a breeze.
Very Professional company who I would highly recommend & definitely use again. Thank You!

First and foremost, I found Photography Firm relaxed, welcoming, friendly and professional. This is important because I imagine that for many product shoots, the client may not know exactly what's required so it's important to at least feel at ease with your photographer in order to start a useful dialog. Well this was certainly the case with me! The quality of the photography is excellent and also competitively priced. They're a very creative bunch of people and their advice on all manner of things has been both useful and insightful. Above all they really get product photography and I look forward to working with them again on our next project.
Andrew was really helpful came to our shop to do shots of our furniture for our new website.
Worked in a really small space and produced some good shots of our stock.
We delivered our smaller items for him to in his studio.
Would use this company again.
We've been delighted with all the product shots the Photography firm have done for us. Plants are not always easy to photograph but Andrew has managed to accurately capture the look we wanted and produced some fantastic themed and lifestyle shots which has helped us to gain greater press coverage.
The whole team are exceptionally helpful, fitting in short turnarounds when needed and rushing edits through to meet our deadlines. I would thoroughly recommend their services.
Photography Firm were very good at ensuring that I was completely satisfied with my photography. They were very patient and offer a good price for start ups. I will definitely use them again.
Fantastic service from start to finish. The shoot was very professional and the results were better than we could have imagined. Will definitely use Photography Firm again and would recommend them to anyone looking for product marketing images.
I was delighted with the photographs taken by the Photography Firm. As well as beautiful images, Andrew took the time to help us develop an atmosphere and style for the photographs that was integral to the re-branding of our website.
Andrew and his team are professional and also very easy to work with. They can produce both styled and cut-out photography to a high standard.
We have worked with the company for a number of years now - both in the studio and on locations.
We can recommend the team at Photography Firm highly and will continue to work with them on future book titles.
Helen is super organised - she always reminds us of the best window to have our client's collections shot. If there is ever an issue with the images she edits them right away and gets back to us promptly. Super happy with the service.
Beautiful photos and a professional and friendly service.
I have recently had two really great shoots working with the Photography Firm - fantastic communication and understanding of the brief, open to discussion, full of ideas and suggestions, efficient, reliable, great time-keeping, a really enjoyable experience - looking forward to the next one - thank you!
We've always had a great experience with Photography firm, the photos are excellent and Helen and Andrew are fantastic. Nothing ever seems too much and they're quick to respond so you feel in the loop. Would highly recommend!
Excellent photography, supplied in any format / size requested and ready to use as is -- with absolutely no colour correction or re-touching required. Great to deal with, friendly and extremely helpful guys. Great prices with quick and reliable turnaround.

Highly reccommended to all.
Having worked with Andrew and Helen several times in the past and they always achieve the best results. Always attentive, thoughtful and helpful with a keen eye for detail. I would recommend their services to anyone who is looking for an excellent final result.
We use The Photography Firm every few months to photograph our new products. Andrew is always super efficient, flexible, a pleasure to work with, and we're always thrilled with the results. Andrew has also made a fantastic video for our YouTube channel, which hit the nail exactly on the head, and has gone down a treat with our customers. Thank you!
We've been working with Andrew for 15 years. Our deadlines are tight, and we're always arranging shoots at the last minute...often with just a few days notice. Some are staged shoots; some are journalistic, but in all cases It's refreshing to find someone who's not precious, who'll work with us and make time for us. Results are spot on every time.
The excellent photographic services offered by Andrew accurately capture the landscape paintings of one of my most regular clients. Reassuringly professional, reliable, and flexible. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this company, you'd be in good hands.
