Being the photographer for a cookbook is an honour, and deliciously fun. Most of all, it is bliss to work in a team: chefs, the food stylists, and assistants.

When I was assigned to photograph an international cookbook I was delighted. Straight away I envisioned myself strolling on spice bazars in Morocco, or other exotic old open-air markets offering fresh-caught salmon, crab, oysters, and more..

Well, that was not to be. Instead we worked in a cooking studio for very intense long days while the sun was doing its’ own cooking outside. We had loads of fun, and we all learned so much.

With this great opportunity of experience, I am once again excited a new cookbook will be in the making … Afghan Cuisine, (no, not in Afghanistan) by a beautiful cook.

Stay tuned ..
