Beautiful, Magical & Surreal Garden Photography by Magda Wasiczek

Some absolutely astonishing photography, very inspiring . Might have to dust off my macro lens and get outdoors.
LOTS more on her website (a little TOO much maybe, could do with a little editing):

She also won International Garden Photographer of the year:

Decision Time for foodonwhite...

Well, we've made a big decision.

We know the image library market has changed drastically in the last few years.
We know the success of microstock has killed off a lot of business for small independent photolibraries.
We know design companies are signing up to microstock deals in their droves.
We know anyone can buy a half decent high res SLR these days and point it at a vegetable.
Call it progress, call it a tragedy, call it the death of the industry if you will, but we know it can never return to the way it was. Change has already well and truly happened.

We have had to make a difficult decision: Whether to be part of the past (and sit around remembering how many images we used to sell), or be part of the future.

We have decided to move our images to Shutterstock.
OK, this won't be a popular decision with some photographers and libraries, but means our images will now be available at ridiculously low prices to the anyone around the globe.

It may take a little time to transfer all our foodonwhite images over (and Shutterstock don't seem to accept any photos shot in natural daylight or with shallow depth of field, which is a little frustrating!) but you can already start downloading now at our portfolio page:

We will still be blogging and tweeting as usual, so will keep in touch with you all still (links below).

With all our best wishes to you all for the future.

Sustainable Business by Design conference

Ok I know it was about two months ago now but here's some of the highlights from the highly inspirational event at Somerset College...

Brilliantly hosted by the eloquent Andrew Knutt, the day was mostly filled with design industry related speakers, interspersed with breakout sessions by each speaker, giving attendees a chance to discuss chosen topics in smaller groups.
There were presentations from the Design Council, the very amusing & entertaining Mark Shayler of eco3 - - ex Asda Environmental Manager. Good to hear a less serious view on sustainability.
Also speaking were John Boult, John Luff & Lynne Elvins.

My personal favourite however was Peter Hopton of VeryPC - - and his story of how he got the BroadLeaf PC produced in the most environmental & ethical way humanly possible. From removing harmful chemical flame retardants, asking for the wires not to be individually bagged, to sourcing the Yorkshire chassis manufacturer (using Icelandic Aluminium), all put together in Sheffield.
And it uses half the energy of the greenest big brand option for the same performance, and less energy when asleep than some PC's do when turned off!
A real genuine & humble green genius.

Gorgeous Gastronomy from the Glorious Gourmet Days...

A long time favourite food photographer of ours, Romulo Yanes, who seemingly shot most of the pages of Gourmet - the amazing American magazine that sadly didn't make it through the recession a couple of years back. Glad the images live on here though...
