Georgia Glynn Smith is one of the world’s leading food and lifestyle photographers and commercials directors. She directs beautiful TV commercials, and has made over 20 films for UK and International clients such as M & S, Asda, Morrison’s, Tesco’s, Pizza Hut, Knorr and Liz Earle Wellbeing. Nothing gives her more pleasure than being on set with a great crew. She has photographed over 80 books for some of the biggest names in food from Mary Berry, Gordon Ramsay and Nigel Slater to Peggy Porschen and Terence Conran. Her work has won many awards including the Glenfiddich Food and Drink Award for Best Food Photographer. Georgia’s renowned for her extraordinary graphic compositions, her warmth and supportiveness on set, her expert understanding of food and her nurturing of new, emerging talent.
Georgia says "Being a food photographer and director has to be one of the best jobs in the world. Admittedly, I now have over 20 years of experience behind me to make it feel easier, but whether I am working for a magazine, with a small design company or a dynamic advertising agency, my aim is always the same - to make the food look amazingly delicious – and, to be honest, we usually do. Food is a glorious challenge to photograph and film, and some subjects are more difficult than others - turkeys and foods like ice cream that melt uncontrollably under lights are high on the list. But I avoid tricks, glue, glazes and other cheats to get a great shot. It has to be real to get that mouth-watering reaction.”
