Food and drink photography – commercial photographer Bournemouth
We recently had the chance to do some commercial food and drinks photography at “Le Bateau” bar & bistro at 141-143 Commercial Road, Poole, BH14 0DJ. The bar is owned by a good friend of mine, Janice Crump and she wanted some new images of the restaurant food and cocktails for her advertising material and menus. She messaged me last Monday afternoon and that evening we went to Le Bateau and took some pictures. Jan closed the bar for the evening from about 7pm and invited the staff to have dinner and a staff meeting. The chefs made each of the dishes one by one and we got the opportunity to photograph them….the staff then got to eat them! Following that, the attractive bar staff made various, beautiful, bright coloured alcoholic cocktails.
Whilst we loved taking the photos, the best part of the evening was definitely getting to eat some of the fantastic Le Bateau food which Jan kindly saved for us! I hadn’t previously eaten there and I’ll be honest, I was expecting the food to be nice, but I wasn’t expecting it to be the quality that it was. The presentation of the food is lovely and the taste is absolutely amazing! Russ and I had a burger and a pizza! ….It would have been nice to sample the cocktails too but I’d already had one glass of wine and I was, unfortunately, the designated driver! Russ took one for the team and sampled a few cocktails!
I highly recommend Le Bateau if you haven’t been there!
