Georgia trained and worked as a designer in New York and London before turning her eye to photography and more recently to directing commercials.
Her passion for food, people, plants, gardens (and laughing) has led to numerous commissions and off-beat assignments, making her the nearest thing to a celebrity food photographer.
Having photographed imagery as varied as tea picking in India, wine growers in Argentina, ice fishing in Canada, icebergs in Greenland, Gordon Ramsay wielding a knife, and Jamie Oliver in front of an underwear stall in Barcelona, she is now happy to rise to any challenge.
Her homely, naturalistic photography in Nigel Slater’s seminal cookbook ‘Real Cooking’ was the product of a whole food philosophy as much as a simple style. In contrast to the prevalence of plastic-y perfection in food photography, ‘Real Cooking’ was one of the first food books that embraced the mess.
Glynn Smith says: “It made people think this can be done in my home. It showed bowls with noodles cascading over the edge, vegetables being dropped on their way to the plate. The book won so many awards. No one had done this kind of thing before. Suddenly everyone understood cooking. It was the beginning of food porn”.
Along with Nigel Slater’s ‘Real Cooking’, Georgia has collaborated on books with Gordon Ramsay, Sophie Grigson, Terence Conran, Leon Restaurants, River Cottage and now has over 50 titles to her name all with highly respected authors. Her work is also regularly published in newspapers and magazines including Vogue, House and Gardens, Delicious, Red, Conde Nast Traveller, Telegraph, Observer, Guardian, and The Sunday Times.
Georgia approaches all her work in a naturalistic, graphic, and understated manner. In her view, keeping the subject ‘real’ gives the images honesty. “I look for a sense of fun, a sense of life in all my images, whether it be food, people, interiors, or landscapes. Food photography, whether it be stills or moving imagery demands ethics, expert knowledge of food, great design skills, teamwork and a food philosophy."
Georgia joined RSA Films for global representation in 2010.
