Hi, I’m Alexis a commercial and editorial food photographer based in Edinburgh, Scotland, UK.

I have shot for a variety of brands across the country from start ups to household names and approach each job with enthusiasm and fine attention to detail.

With more than a decade of experience as a graphic designer, my extensive understanding of branding and art direction helps me craft beautiful on-brand imagery.

My food photography featured in The Independent newspaper and some of my previous clients include

I am available for hire in Edinburgh for studio shoots, on-location shoots as well as remote shooting.

For examples of my food photography please see my portfolio.

Favourite food
Grilled cheese toasties.

Favourite colour to photograph
For so long I was in denial, but I have to say it’s baby pink. My favourite doll growing up was called Pinky.

A vice I can’t shake off
Hoarding free supermarket magazines.

Guilty pleasure
Tearing a fresh made scone into tiny pieces, with lashings of clotted cream and jam. You get more cream that way!

Unusual thing about me
I never had a milkshake til I was 27. It was soon followed by a belly ache, but could be convinced to give them another go.

“We worked with Alexis on our charity project The Food Fighters…The contributors who had recipes shot by her were over the moon and the images really capture what the project is all about. We would highly recommend working with her. ” 

UK Food Fighters

We collaborated with Alexis to gain some high quality recipes and photographs for our website and product listings, having spotted some of her previous work which we loved.

The work was sensational, our brief of creating lifestyle shots was followed perfectly, keeping in good contact and checking things to make sure things were to our liking. The final shots were outstanding, to a real top quality standard!
