Photographer and food writer
Hello. I am Joan and I have a lifelong interest in food. My first career was as a lecturer in Human Nutrition. I worked for many years at the University of Leeds both in teaching and research. I have a MMedSci and PhD in human nutrition. More recently I have become passionate about taking compelling, natural images of food, people and landscapes. This has created wonderful opportunities for me to take photographs for books, magazines and advertising. I also write about food and the people who grow and produce it. I am an accomplished cook and food stylist with experience of developing, testing and writing recipes. I am based in the beautiful town of Ilkley, West Yorkshire and work on location around the UK.
If you’re interested in working together, whether it involves cooking, writing, photography or content creation, do get in touch T: 07954796616
