The Big Fat Duck COOKBOOK - Heston Blumenthal

Client Richard Atkinson @ Bloomsbury

Creative Direction Direction Heston Blumenthal & Ashley Palmer Watts

“The food photography for The big fat cookbook was always going to be challenging.I wanted pictures that were not only breathtakingly beautiful but also somehow captured the spirit of each dish.When I commissioned Dominic,I already knew he had a superb eye and visual imagination, but it was only once I began working with him that I discovered two other things that help make him such a great photographer. First his positive enthusiasm for every aspect of the job,no matter how tricky ,time consuming or off the wall it might be . Second , his total perfectionism. He won’t stop until he’s got the shot.” Heston Blumenthal
