Food Week: What Katie Ate

25 Jun

If I’m ever lucky enough to visit Australia, What Katie Ate will be one of my first stops when compiling my ‘places to eat’ list. Originally from Dublin, food photographer and stylist Katie Quinn Davies is now based Down Under, where she has a string of impressive magazine credits and a forthcoming cookbook to her name. As well as a beautiful blog of course.

I don’t claim to be an expert on food photography, but there does seem to be a bit of a trend towards light, bright, candy-coloured images at the moment, so I like the contrast of Katie’s moody, atmospheric style. I love the relaxed styling and rustic propping too. Every picture makes we want to grab a spoon and beg to be allowed to jump in!

I think that anyone with a decent camera and good light could do a passable job of making puddings and desserts look appetising, but what makes Katie’s photography stand apart for me is the way she makes less dainty dishes look delicious too. Roasted meat, hearty pies, chunky casseroles… ‘man food’ if you will. Katie proves that tastiness doesn’t have to mean prettiness and I really admire that about her work.

Mouth watering yet? There’s sooo much more over at What Katie Ate – I’ll definitely be popping back to give her recent American special post some extra attention – the mix of food, lifestyle and travel photography is really striking.

    I drool over food blogs all the time. What Katie Ate has such great photography that you can almost smell the food.
