Del is a Photographer and Stylist with an obsession for cooking. He hails from Central Scotland but spends most weekends in the lush, rugged area called The Trossachs where he cooks, eats, and posts his FridayFeasts to Instagram. After 25 years of experience in the creative industry as a Designer and Art Director, Del decided to take the plunge and look at food from the other side of the lens as an amateur photographer.
"I spent 25 years on the other side of the lens as an Art Director, so I suppose composition comes naturally. But shooting my food is quite different from a commercial project: these images are also my dinner, which I'd rather not eat cold. I have to work fast, so I regularly throw in ingredients or utensils I've used during the making of a dish to give it a sense of realness and immediacy.
My Instagram posts are treats, always on a Friday and occasionally midweek. I enjoy mince and tatties, instant noodles, and frozen fish fingers like everyone else, but they're hardly an achievement, probably not meaningful and definitely not photogenic, so I tend to focus on challenging food: recipes which might inspire others, but most of all, looks delicious.”
