  • Eat Out to Help Out - Photoshoot
    Eat Out to Help Out - PhotoshootAhead of the launch of the UK government's initiative 'Eat Out to Help Out', in August 2020, I photographed a group of chefs whose restaurants were taking part in the scheme.

The shoot aimed to help encourage members of the public to start dining out again, in order to help restart the hospitality sector in the country.
