Try Stopping This 289/365 And that’s it for the gobstopper triptych! This was a real family effort. My brother bought me some nostalgia inducing sweets in the hopes that it would spur some photo ideas (and it looks like it worked!), and then for this photo, I thought it would be fun to get my dear mother to help out. She wasn’t too keen on swinging the hammer, but she was game to push the shutter. She’s got sharp reflexes, that one! #judgeshootsfood365 #familybusiness • • • • • • #CY365 #photoaday #creativelive #foodporn #vscofood #foodstylist #foodandwine #f52grams #huffposttaste #thekitchn #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #buzzfeast #foodphotography #heresmyfood @food #instaireland #irishfoodphotographer #irishphotographer #irishfoodstylist #stilllife #fineartphotography #creativephotography #inmykitchen #onmytable #beautifulcuisines #actionshot #highspeedphotography #gobstopper #smashingfood
Gob-Stoppered 287/365 I spent about an hour today reading through the stories that @cameronrussell has been sharing from models working in the fashion industry about their experiences with sexual assault and sexual harassment at the hands of photographers. I urge you to read them yourself and follow the hashtag #MyJobShouldNotIncludeAbuse Even as a child, I was told stories of how common it is for aspiring models to be “taken advantage of”. Sexually assaulted, would have been the better way to say it. It might seem logical to think that once this becomes common knowledge, even to people who don’t work in the industry, that something would have to change. But the reality is that it becomes a sort of permission to predators. “It’s how this business works” has apparently become a self justification for these photographers to force themselves upon even minors. It’s hard not to read these stories and be physically repulsed. But maybe the most powerful aspect of the accounts being shared, and Cameron’s message, is that this goes beyond that vague knowledge that this stuff happens. It is so systemic, so ingrained, that so many models, agents, editors, stylists... they literally know the photographers who are behaving so morally reprehensibly, not to mention criminally, and still nothing is done. The silence is deafening. I don’t work in fashion, but I felt the need to make a photo on this topic. When someone volunteers to step into a photoshoot, the photographer has been given power. And they have a responsibility to honour the trust that is required to give someone that power. To violate that trust so completely, is an added level of reprehensible. This culture needs to change. #judgeshootsfood365
Precious Tears 286/365 Still the purest way to harvest coconut water. You don’t want to know what I said to make it cry... Thus completes my coconut triptych! On to other, less coconutty things tomorrow. #judgeshootsfood365 #sadface • • • • • • #365Project #CY365 #creativelive #vzcomade #foodstagram #foodstyling #foodstylist #foodandwine #f52grams #huffposttaste #thekitchn #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #buzzfeast #foodprnshare #foodphotography #heresmyfood @food #instaireland #artofvisuals #foodphotographer #tv_stilllife #creativefoodphotos #funnyfood #sadfood #coconutmilk #coconutwater #inmykitchen #beautifulcuisines
Dancing Katsuobushi 283/365 Around the corner from where I lived in Japan sat a little Okonomiyaki restaurant. It was my first experience of this strange beast known as the “Japanese Pizza”, a name which certainly doesn’t come close to adequately explaining it. Shredded cabbage mixed with a light batter and almost any additional combination of goodies that you could think up. The name pretty much translates to “whatever-you-like, grilled”. But whatever you do like, the classic topping is a slathering of rich, Worcestershire-based sauce, a spiral of Japanese mayo, and a generous sprinkling of microscopically thinly shaved dried tuna, or katsuobushi. As soon as the feather-like flakes hit the gently steaming dish, they come to life and begin to dance. It’s a beautiful thing, and it started my love affair with this uniquely Japanese creation. How much time did I spend in that little restaurant? Well let’s just say that when I left Japan, the owner-chef gave me a goodbye gift. #judgeshootsfood365 #youcanhavewhateveryoulike • • • • • • #CY365 #foodporn #vscofood #foodandwine #f52grams #huffposttaste #thekitchn #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #buzzfeast #heresmyfood @food #instaireland #irishfoodphotographer #irishfoodstylist #fineartphotography #creativephotography #inmykitchen #onmytable #lifeandthyme #tablescape #thatsdarling #fromscratch #jj_still_life #beautifulcuisines #お好み焼き #かつおぶし #日本食 #japanesefood #okonomiyaki
Interpretive Candy Floss 282/365 About a year ago now I took a short series of photos of clouds, just as an exercise in doing something a bit different from what I was usually shooting. I cropped, rotated, and heavily processed the shots to emphasise shapes that I saw in them. Pareidolia, is the term. The phenomenon of human perception, where we identify familiar patterns even where they don’t exist. Is what we see a reflection of our deepest thoughts? Or the most shallow result of simple suggestion? One could spend a lot of time self analysing what we recognise in the shifting movements of clouds... But what I really enjoyed most about the whole thing was that it made me look up a lot more. Searching for meaning in candy floss also has it’s own perks *scoff scoff scoff* #judgeshootsfood365 #whatdoyousee • • • • • • #CY365 #photoaday #creativelive #foodporn #vscofood #foodstylist #foodandwine #f52grams #huffposttaste #thekitchn #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #buzzfeast #foodphotography #heresmyfood @food #instaireland #irishfoodphotographer #irishphotographer #irishfoodstylist #stilllife #fineartphotography #creativephotography #lifeandthyme #thatsdarling #jj_still_life #beautifulcuisines #cottoncandy #candyfloss
To Every Thing There Is A Season 280/365 I was convinced that I would have a cool idea for a photo that would use a full ear of corn, in the husk. So convinced was I, that when they came both into season and shop windows, I bought them right away. An idea will come, I thought to myself. Just wait, and inspiration shall strike. And so my corn waited. And waited. And now they are no longer in season. Turn, turn, turn... #whpseasons #judgeshootsfood365 #friendsromanscountrymen • • • • • • #CY365 #photoaday #vscofood #foodstylist #foodandwine #f52grams #huffposttaste #thekitchn #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #buzzfeast #foodphotography #heresmyfood @food #instaireland #irishfoodphotographer #irishphotographer #irishfoodstylist #stilllife #fineartphotography #creativephotography #inmykitchen #onmytable #lifeandthyme #earofcorn #withered #dessicated #foodwaste #cornonthecob
Off With His Head 279/365 Bit obsessed with Cabbages at the moment, sorry. I picked up a couple of really good looking Savoys from the grocer’s, and it’s just been too tempting to keep shooting them. Gonna have to eat them now though, so all good things come to and end I guess! #judgeshootsfood365 #cabbagekiller • • • • • • #CY365 #photoaday #creativelive #foodporn #vscofood #foodstylist #foodandwine #f52grams #huffposttaste #thekitchn #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #buzzfeast #foodphotography #heresmyfood @food #instaireland #irishfoodphotographer #irishphotographer #irishfoodstylist #fineartphotography #inmykitchen #onmytable #lifeandthyme #tablescape #thatsdarling #jj_still_life #beautifulcuisines #greencabbage #beautifulvegetables
Cooking With Fire 278/365 Strike a match and turn up the heat. It’s funny how sometimes the image I try so hard to make ends up not being the one I want. I spent a lot of time and attempts working on getting the chilli flakes falling around a perfect flame on the match. But after editing the images, I actually preferred it when the match wasn’t lit. I suppose all it cost me was time. And matches. And maybe my sanity. #judgeshootsfood365 #burningthemidnightoil • • • • • • #CY365 #creativelive #vzcomade #foodstagram #foodstyling #foodstylist #foodandwine #f52grams #huffposttaste #thekitchn #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #buzzfeast #foodprnshare #foodphotography #heresmyfood @food #instaireland #artofvisuals #foodphotographer #tv_stilllife #fineartphotography #fineartfood #creativefood #creativephotography #beautifulcuisines #chilliflakes #chiliflakes #spiceart #foodartist
The Brains of the Outfit 277/365 As a continuation from yesterday’s photo. I’ve often marvelled at the compact folding of leaves that make up a head of cabbage. Rather like the complex folding that goes on inside another kind of head... #judgeshootsfood365 #itsnotbrainsurgery • • • • • • #CY365 #foodporn #vscofood #foodstylist #foodandwine #f52grams #huffposttaste #thekitchn #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #buzzfeast #foodphotography #heresmyfood @food #instaireland #irishfoodphotographer #irishphotographer #irishfoodstylist #stilllife #fineartphotography #creativephotography #inmykitchen #onmytable #lifeandthyme #thatsdarling #jj_still_life #beautifulcuisines #foodportrait #beautifulvegetables #savoycabbage
Daalicious 275/365 For my final meal in London, I couldn’t leave without having an honest to goodness Indian. And honestly? My goodness! On a recommendation, I went to @dishoom and... boy was it a good recommendation. I got to finally try jackfruit, as part of a perfectly spiced biryani. The roti was light and plentiful, as it should be, and the accompanying dipping sauces were both vividly different and perfectly complimentary. But the absolute star, the standout, the hero, was a 24hour slow-cooked black daal. It’s enough of a reason to go back to London all on its own. Heck, it’s practically a reason to move there. Hats off to the chef, and thanks for making my last meal in this city a memorable one. #judgeshootsfood365 #couldeatthiseveryday (When I told a member of staff how gosh-darned good everything was, he started chatting to me, saw the camera and asked if I was a blogger. I said no, but he gave me a pair of gift cards for a free breakfast regardless, possibly thinking he could buy a sneaky good word on some highly influential corner of the blogosphere. Joke’s on him, cause I’ve no such clout and I was gonna rave about this place to anyone who’ll listen anyway! My friend who I gave them to thanks him though.) • • • • • • #CY365 #photoaday #foodporn #vscofood #foodstylist #foodandwine #f52grams #huffposttaste #thekitchn #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #buzzfeast #foodphotography #heresmyfood @food #instaireland #irishfoodphotographer #irishphotographer #irishfoodphotographer #onmytable #tablescape #beautifulcuisines #londonfoodie #londonfoodscene #indianfoodinlondon #dishoom #londonrestaurants #daal #londoneats #eatinglondon
What’s in the Cupboard Cakes 274/365 Improv baking at my mate’s house, using whatever he happened to have in his kitchen. Not enough butter, so mixed in banana, some vegetable oil and peanut butter. No baking powder, so used yeast. And to make it interesting, threw in chopped chocolate, banana chips, Toffee Crisp and Peanut M&M’s (responsible for that dazzling blue). Of course, maybe I shouldn’t have even tried to make muffins in the first place seeing as he didn’t have a muffin tray... but where there’s a will (and kitchen foil), there’s a way! #judgeshootsfood365 #travelbaking • • • • • • #365Project #CY365 #creativelive #vzcomade #foodstagram #foodstyling #foodstylist #foodandwine #f52grams #huffposttaste #thekitchn #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #buzzfeast #foodprnshare #foodphotography #heresmyfood @food #instaireland #artofvisuals #foodphotographer #tv_stilllife #fromscratch #homebaking #onmytable #inmykitchen #beautifulcuisines #lifeandthyme #chocolatemuffins #freshlybaked
Best of Both 273/365 My London food education continues, with my very able guide @specialitycoffeeblog taking me to some of his favourite spots around town. I refused to decide between the options he gave me, so we came up with the best solution possible. Hit different restaurants, ordering just one thing off the menu from each and sharing. Here’s the courgette fries from @byronhamburgers (the crispy polenta batter is outstanding), and the baby back ribs from @bodeansbbq (soon to be devoured smothered in hickory and chipotle sauces). Of course, it would be rude not to order the house specialty beer as well... In keeping with the theme, I refused to decide which photo to post, and did both. #judgeshootsfood365 #decisionsareoverrated • • • • • • #CY365 #photoaday #foodporn #vscofood #foodstylist #foodandwine #f52grams #huffposttaste #thekitchn #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #buzzfeast #foodphotography #heresmyfood @food #irishfoodphotographer #irishphotographer #irishfoodstylist #stilllife #onmytable #tablescape #beautifulcuisines #londonfoodie #londonfoodscene #dininginlondon #londonrestaurants #eatinglondon #beerfood #beerpairing
Munch 272/365 (Repost, cause I accidentally cropped the first attempt... 🙄) 9 different flavoured donuts for 9 different flavoured months! (With a bite taken out for the day I missed). *deep breath* Sprinkles, Jam, Double Choc, Toffee Glaze, Pistachio, White Choc, Icing Drizzle, Dark Choc and Powdered Sugar! Which one do you have dibs on? #judgeshootsfood365 #gonutsfordonuts (P.S., donuts are mad easy to make!

Makes The World Go Round 271/365 The beans churning away in the roaster at @ozonecoffeenz.

Toasted Cheese and... Haggis?! 270/365 I’m in London! So, probably not gonna be in a position to do my usual style of photos for you guys most days, you’ll be stuck with whatever I happen to be eating! And today that turned out to be... haggis sandwiches!?? Yeah, stumbling off my flight this morning after maybe twenty minutes sleep last night, I desperately needed food and in my good fortune happened upon an outdoor food market with @deeneys serving up some sexy slices of haggis sandwiched between cheese, caramelised onion, mustard and bread before slamming the whole thing under a hot iron until it became this melty goodness. First time having haggis, but honestly it’s a lot like black pudding (which is a good thing in my books). #judgeshootsfood365 #earthwormjim (P.S., I also had a Bánh mì for the first time today. And holy cow, that one was life changing!) • • • • • • #365Project #CY365 #creativelive #vzcomade #foodstagram #foodstyling #foodstylist #foodandwine #f52grams #huffposttaste #thekitchn #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #buzzfeast #foodprnshare #foodphotography #heresmyfood @food #instaireland #artofvisuals #foodphotographer #tv_stilllife #toastedcheese #meltedcheese #haggis #streetfood #londonstreetfood #londonfoodscene
