Do Largo – Comida Local & Mercearia

Mercearia Do Largo, in Évora´s historic district, recently underwent extensive renovations and have reopened with a brand new look on one of the cities most picturesque squares. In collaboration with Be Aromatic, a local organic herb farm, they have revamped the menu: all locally sourced, all organic and all seasonal ingredients. Their menu is all 100% delicious (and I would know because I ate EVERYTHING) and not only good for you, but also good for the planet. In addition to the restaurant, they also sell Be Aromatic herbs and products, as well as several other locally sourced, organic goodies such…

Sal Verde – A cookbook

This cookbook project was many years in the making, a passion project for both Rute, the author, and I. We have been friends for many years and had often talked about one day making a cookbook. When the opportunity arose, we jumped at the chance, not knowing that it would be almost 3 years later that our book would be printed and on the shelf. The entire production took place on Rute´s farm in the Alentejo and we cooked and styled and photographed and tasted and then cooked again and then photographed again… and then again just one more time…

Passeite | Organic olive oil in Portugal

Marije and Gui are a Dutch-Portuguese couple producing top quality olive oil in the Coimbra region of Portugal. We have known them for almost a decade and these two are powerhouses, always up to something new and innovative. Gui opened and runs a restaurant, Taberna do Azeite, in the old part of Coimbra (closed now thanks to COVID) that focused especially on paring olive oils with small plates of food. And Marije is the chief farming lady: planting, clearing, pruning, harvesting, pressing, bottling and packaging their organic, small batch extra virgin olive oil for their brand, Passeite. Safe to say…

Albergaria do Calvario

Towards the end of last year I travelled out to Évora to shoot the Albergaria do Calvario, a boutique hotel inside the walls of the old town, in the historic heart of the city. These are some of my favourite images and you can see more on their website HERE. SaveSave SaveSave

Taqueria Pistola y Corazon

A few weeks before we embarked on our crazy European road trip (and my access to the internet was reduced practically nothing) I was contacted by a Taqueria Pistola y Corazon, a Mexican restaurant in Lisbon, to shoot some images for their site and branding. I loved this place, their food is SO GOOD and unlike a lot of “Mexican restaurants” that aren´t in Mexico, their food is the real thing… the best I´ve had since I was last in Mexico… which was a very long time ago. These are a few of my favourite images from 2 days spent…

Quinta de Sant´Ana

These images are the culmination of a year long project documenting the day to day activities of the Quinta de Sant`Ana, a wine estate just north of Lisbon. The idea of the project was to capture the year of a wine farm, following the seasons and recording all the elements that influence the time-line of small scale wine production. The quinta recently updated their website with some of these images, which you can see in the screen-grabs above. And the photos below are some of my favourites from the year long project… as well as a “behind the scenes” shot…

Booking.com Travel Guides – Albufeira

Earlier this year I spent a week in Albufeira photographing the city and surroundings for Booking.com. They have recently launched a new “Travel Guides” feature on their site, exclusively for people who have booked accommodation through them, and they asked me to photograph their new guide for Albufeira. I can´t post the link here because it´s only visible to booking.com members who have reserved accommodation in the area but I grabbed a few screen shots to give you an idea of how my images were used…

Be Aromatic

In the autumn of 2014 we spent a few days out in the Alentejo documenting the workings of an organic herb farm for our friends at “Be Aromatic“, who specialise in growing herbs for the essential oil industry. This is a relatively new business and they needed their website to have a cohesive set of images to illustrate who they are and what they do… without being too corporate or industrial about it. Theirs is a family-run production and they have a strong connection to the earth, this is their business but it´s also their life philosophy… they live on…
