Working with food stylist Mima Sinclair and props stylist Tony Hutchinson, Holly produced a series of sumptuous images for the magazine. We’ll definitely be having extra portions of some of these healthier desert alternatives!

One of our successes from LPA Futures 2011, Rowan has continued to impress us with his colourful and vibrant approach to still-life photography. Whether how to keep a cold at bay or how to avoid back pain, Rowan has creatively interpreted some common maladies.
Housed at St Bride’s Church on Fleet Street, St Bride’s Choir was formed in 1957 and have been singing ever since. Shot on location, Oliver captured the chorists mid song in a series of captivating portraits. Known for his use of light and expansive retouching skills, Oliver’s project perfectly captures the exuberance of the choir and the atmosphere of the church.
Recently launched, Pip & Nut offer a range of nut butters including almond and coconut. Shooting both pack shots and recipe shots, we love these fresh and bright images which reflect the brand’s healthy values. We had a sneaky taste and would highly recommend this tasty product to all you nut lovers!
Looking at ideas of childhood, the images straddle the often fragile boundary between play and violence in a series of thought-provoking images. Oliver often works with children as he enjoys ‘their innocent fresh approach that enriches our own perception’ and gives us a new way to view the world.
Make sure you head down to The Brick Lane Gallery this Wednesday from 6-8.30pm for the preview, or anytime until February 1st when the show closes.
Oliver knows how to get the most out of his models, which here ensures that the shots are both natural and engaging. We think the final images make the region look a great place to visit, succeeding in showing what Castile & Leon has to offer during the winter season.
