Artist  Georgia Glynn Smith  

Food & Drink

Georgia Glynn Smith is one of the world’s leading food and lifestyle photographers and commercials directors. She is renowned for her extraordinary graphic compositions, her warmth and supportiveness on set, her expert understanding of food and her nurturing of new emerging talent. She has photographed over 70 books for some of the biggest names in food from Mary Berry, Gordon Ramsay and Nigel Slater to Peggy Porschen, Terence Conran, and has also created dozens of bestsellers and award-winners for some of the newest names (including all five Leon books). She directs beautiful TV commercials, and has made over 20 films for UK and International clients over the last few years. Georgia is a commercials director specialising in food. Her films are all very naturalistic, you want to eat the food off the screen. The films are often strengthened with her graphic eye and the subjects are emphasised with her sensitivity towards the subject whether it be a christmas cake or a child looking for a job. Her work has won many awards including the Glenfiddich Food and Drink Award for Best Food Photographer, The Pink Lady Food and Drinks Award and The Gourmand Food award. She has an irrepressible love of good food, people, gardens and laughter and lives in Highbury, North London with Stefan Gates (her food writer/TV presenter husband), Daisy and Poppy (her two crazy daughters) and Blue, her gorgeous Colloodle puppy and Cheeky, her rather warring cat.
