luisabrimble I didn't want to waste not using the props @stephanie_somebody put together from our recent shoot. So I decided to play. I prepared tapas style dishes that I can photograph and that we can also eat for lunch. 2w

luisabrimble Vanilla roasted grapes, sweet dukkah and goat's curd on fruit toast - just one of a few recipes we photographed this week for CSR Sugar's new specialist range - @sugarsoftheworld. The @locallovely Pracshop team has been working together on a commercial photoshoot. Sophie Hansen (aka @locallovely) did all the recipe development and food prepping - creating flavoursome dishes one after the other. @stephanie_somebody styling - as usual making us look good. @ellabendrups possibly the best assistant & model in one - somebody please represent this girl because she's an awesome model. And @hannahmacmedia - my best intern who's also been filming every step of the way. 3w

luisabrimble No fancy table setting required - just fancy chef, fancy company and fancy veggies to make up the fancy Sunday staff meal at @epicureanharvest organic farm in the Blue Mountains. Erika & Hayden currently supplies vegetables to Sydney's top restaurants and hope to one day expand and supply veggies at local markets. At today's shoot we took along chef - @missarahglover and challenged her to produce dishes we can pick straight from the farm. I asked @missarahglover all the veggies she used in today's feast and they are as follows: Chickweed, Bronzed Fennel, White and Red Radishes, Purple Daikon Radish, Red Russian Kale, Parisian Carrots, Marigold edible flowers, Carrot leaves and White, Purple & Gold Carrots. @missarahglover will feature a few recipes in her blog and the one I'm really impressed about is her use of carrot leaves in a salad and producing very impressive pack full of flavour 'restaurant-quality-yet-homely' looking dishes. 3w

luisabrimble Harvest of white radishes at @epicureanharvest. Sophie Hansen of @locallovely first introduced us to the incredible couple - Erika & Hayden of @epicureanharvest. After hearing Erika talk at the @locallovely Pracshop I straight away organised to shoot their farm in Blackheath. Today we spent all of Sunday shooting and filming their story. And what more we invited a chef - @missarahglover to come with us to put together a dish using produce straight from their farm. Epic doesn't even begin to describe it. It was one of those days where everything is a story material and I didn't know whether to shoot or to film! Lucky @hannahmacmedia was there to help me capture it all. More to come. Thank you Erika, Hayden and your crew Tim & Will for allowing us to document what you do. 3w

luisabrimble I've complained lately that there's not enough cooking shows and there should be more of them. It clicked the other day that possibly one of the reason I got really interested in filming and editing videos is to one day have my own channel filled with series of kitchen stories. So yesterday at @gardenclinicclub HQ, @missarahglover and I filmed 4 recipes to share in @missarahglover's new YouTube channel. This one is one of my most favourite recipes from yesterday - Warm Green Breakfast Bowl. An absolute perfect one to make this winter long weekend. I can't wait to keep making more food videos to share. In the meantime please subscribe to Sarah's YouTube channel as we will be creating more recipes in the future. To watch how to make this recipe please click the link in my profile. 3w

luisabrimble Grand table styling not required when you let the location shine. Elephant garlic from @boutiquegarlic, Kimbri olive oil from Annie & Henry Herron's olive tree farm created the minimal table styling from our lunch in the olive grove during the @locallovely Pracshop. The clever @stephanie_somebody played with shapes and shadows instead in styling the table. #localislovelyworkshop 1mon

luisabrimble What I love about Sophie Hansen of @locallovely is she makes my dream workshop come true. Together with @stephanie_somebody styling I ended up just incredibly overwhelmed by the beautiful scene they constantly create for us to shoot. The @locallovely pracshops is about learning the basics, putting it into practice, gathering, make friends and just enjoying the whole experience. Lunch in the olive grove at @artclasseswithannieherron property in Rydal, NSW. #localislovelyworkshop 1mon

luisabrimble Continuing my House Plant Series, I photographed @little_nicki_'s little apartment in Tamarama full of indoor plants. I thought that it will be nice to add a portrait of the house owner with all their collected plants. We'll sharing the photos soon. xoxoxo 1mon

luisabrimble I'm reposting this beautiful illustration by Tracy Hung @yayforfriends. It was inspired by one of my 'Girls Holding Flowers' Series of @le_jones holding the foliage of wattle provided by @katiemarxflowers. To view the original image you can click the link in my profile. Thank you @yayforfriends it's so beautiful. I'd really love to buy a print please. 1mon

luisabrimble I'm really torn lately - between high concept and real moments when it comes to which direction I want to take my photography. In saying this though every time I purchase a book or a magazine I'm still drawn to books or magazines in which photography is about 'real moments' rather than the highly styled or conceptual. On a look out for new inspiration, my good friend @arthurstreetkitchen introduced me to Toby Glanville's work - he photographed the a few cookbooks and one of them is Rose Bakery's - Breakfast, Lunch Tea. Toby Glanville's work is just absolutely stunning. He totally went straight to no.5 of my top 10 favourite photographers. This cookbook is far from high concept but rather a celebration of warmth and real moments. I loved that this cookbook is as real as you can get - published by Phaidon. 'Down the long driveway, you'll see it' is the book photographed by @marygaudin in collaboration with Matthew Arnold. It is a coffee table book of modernist homes built in NZ between the 1940s and the early 1970s. The beauty of this book lies in the small details, quiet moments, the bits and pieces that give you a sence of a place rather than the highly-polished architectural images we flick through magazines and online. 'Lifecyling' - another beautiful book about the homes of people whose day-to-day lives reflect an affection and dedication to the things they hold most dear. New fave mags: MITT @meninthistown (by the way @rachelkara I loved your photo essay in the 1st issue) and @nourishedjournal. There's a definitely time and place for high concept images no doubt about it. For me styling though still need to make sense and form part of the story. 1mon
  •   petalplum So great to read these words - love hearing your thoughts on this......as a wish-i-was-a-photographer (ha!) and will-never-be-a-stylised I ponder this often .... I don't think I ever come to a clear decision, but that's ok too. 1mon

luisabrimble I can show you scrumptious salads and quiches and incredible looking cakes but that's just showing off right? Ha ha ha. Trust me there are and when @theflourybaker and @simmerandboyle puts them on the table chances are you got to be quick because this is the scene you'll end up with. You snooze you loose. One of the things I love to shoot are gatherings and I've been to lots. This one put together by Nia & Johan Neve of @theassemblyhome is most definitely my kind of gathering. The one I felt really at home and comfortable. I never once felt intimidated meeting or introducing myself to most of the guests at today's luncheon. Lately at gatherings there seems to be a trend where there's more emphasis on fancy schmancy styling and becomes such a grand affair. Today was just perfect. Thank you @theassemblyhome and team! I wish it was longer, I wish it lingered until dinner and we could have chatted a lot more. I met so many amazing people. I was telling someone today that I meet the next person I collaborate with at gatherings like this and very right too! @theassemblyhome you guys are right on the money here, you've created a gathering I want to attend again and again. I love that you brought it back to the basics of just the simplicity, amazing food and just purely a time to enjoy each other's company. I'm looking forward to the next one - Winter gathering. Sign me up! #assemblygathering 1mon

luisabrimble Whilst we were preparing the main meal for today's lunch, I attempted @kategibbs' Grilled Prawns with Bloody Mary Butter. I forgot to add the tomato paste! Nevertheless it tasted so freakin' good, prompting questions from @hannahmacmedia and @andjelkaj where I got the recipe from - I said that it's actually featured in @kategibbs' new cookbook Margaret & Me. #MargaretAndMe 2mon
