[Maya Visnyei's studio before the shot is set up]
One of the best things about putting together an issue of Covet Garden is the photo shoots. Especially our project page pictures. We always have a great time working with so many lovely and talented photographers and food stylists. Because we spend so much of energy documenting the sublime style of our featured householders, these photo days give us a chance to flex our own creative muscles!
We thought we'd share a behind-the-scenes peek of shoot we did for our upcoming second anniversary issue in September. Today we worked with the extraordinary photographer Maya Visnyei and food stylist Julie Zambonelli doing their magic and making sure a delicious tea sandwich is ready for its closeup.
Our own Lynda Felton brought fantastic floral prints and colourful vintage pieces along to brighten up the images and the day. That's her hiding behind a scrumptious cake (many treats were eaten, nothing went to waste)! We can't wait until September to share the finished recipes but we will have to learn to be patient.
