Recently Brad Green owner of Green’s Steakhouse restaurants opened his latest in Bracknell, Berkshire! It’s a superb, classy restaurant catering for anyone who enjoys cocktails, meat and seafood. (If I could eat there every evening I would!) After contacting Brad about photographing his launch party earlier this month, he was so impressed with the images he invited me back to capture some of him working in the kitchen on a Saturday evening as well as a selection of more relaxed images away from the kitchen that he could use for promotional purposes. He didn’t have to ask me twice as he’s a super cool, relaxed guy.
Brad invited me into the kitchen area while all the chefs and assistants were busy working away making sure the food they produced was amazing. You can tell there is a lot of passion there and everyone is cooking because they enjoy it. Capturing fast action under low light is always challenging but with a bit of fill-in flash I was able to capture the images I wanted concentrating mainly on Brad – from behind the kitchen showing some of the restaurant but also in-front. I spent around half an hour downstairs before heading up to the function room to set up my lighting for Brad’s profile shots. We ended up using a gorgeous leather chair which brought an edge to his photos. I wanted to get across his London style vibe with creative lighting with the use of the restaurant furniture so in a few shots he is using the chair. I hope you agree – he looks amazing in them.
A selection of colour and black and white images was enough to capture what Brad wanted and he was delighted with the results. So delighted that one shot in the kitchen heads up his ‘Our Story’ page on his website.
Below are some images from my time with him and a link so you can book a table!
Great time….. L xx
