Our very own in-house food writer Heather Brown, has been shortlisted in the international Pink Lady Food
Photographer of the Year Competition, making the top 10% from thousands of entries globally.
Heather first had an image shortlisted in the competition in 2018, with a photograph of a box of sugar-laden doughnuts. This year, Heather’s image of local cheesemaker The Book & Bucket Cheese Company’s multi award winning brie style ’Shakespeare’ cheese has been shortlisted in the ‘Production Paradise Previously Published’ category.
Heather works as a food writer and home economist, running Dorset Foodie Feed as well as working with brands and agencies to help make their products stand out from the crowd. Heather is on the committee of the Guild of Food Writers, and has worked in and around food businesses for the last 20 years. Heather says “I love working closely with business owners to help tell their stories. More and more I think consumers want to see the products they buy in all their unfiltered glory, to know where they came from and about the people who created them. That is my focus when helping a business, whether that is through the building of a website, the taking of photographs or helping them curate some words for an advert or magazine article.
“This particular image was taken to try and capture the sheer oozy-ness of brie in a way that might make a
customer’s mouth water. It was taken very simply, with a dark background and natural light. I was careful to make sure that the cheese is the real hero in the image.”
