How do you shoot a sunny garden on a cloudy day? You make one as I did here, positioning numerous lights around this courtyard. The appropriately named Spice PR had commissioned me to photograph the new Earthfire outdoor pizza ovens from their client Grenadier. Private chef Jason Palin, who has cooked in 40 countries (including for A-list stars in Gstaad, no less) brought some Mediterranean flavour to a dull British afternoon, cooking calzone and oven-roast mackerel as well as pizza.
And the best part of the shoot? I got to eat the props.
