Bake off Bonanza

Check out this photoshoot I produced for Sainsbury's Magazine with the previous winners of the Great British Bake Off.  It was shot by the brilliant Paul Stuart on a very very hot day in July.

The idea for this shoot came from a Tim Walker picture of the Monty Python crew.  I thought it would be great to get the same feel with food items rather then smoke.  It was originally shot for Vanity Fair back in 2009.  

The previous winners were all really up for the shoot and surprisingly, the flour fight quickly escalated into madness.  Jo Wheatley had brought along her puppy French Bulldog who was happy to hoover up all the food underneath the table and get covered in flour.  When I removed him from the floor and placed him on the random bed in the studio, he proceeded to poo on it.  The studio took ages to clear up but it was worth it!
