BARNSTAPLE based food photographer Guy Harrop has pipped thousands of other hopefuls in an international food photography competition.

Guy’s picture of harvest time at Ostler’s Cider Mill, near Goodleigh, won first prize in the ‘Food and its Place’ category of the Pink Lady Food Photographer of the Year 2013 competition.

The picture, entitled ‘Scrumpy Time’, impressed a stellar panel of judges – including respected food critic Jay Rayner and TV chef Antonio Carluccio.

Guy said: “Last year I had two entries in this category and came second, so to actually win first prize this year is fantastic.

“Food photography is really one of my passions and during this last year I have been very busy shooting new work for restaurants, luxury hotels, food producers and food publishers.

“I think where I live is also very beneficial to my food photographs, as Devon and Cornwall have such a really diverse range of food producers from chocolates and cheese to meat and fish.

“I grew up in a hotel and was always around cooking as a child, so food and photography really does tick all the boxes,” added Guy, who received his award from chairman of the judges, Jay Rayner at a packed champagne reception in London on Wednesday.

The international competition, in its second year attracted more than 5,500 images from around the world.
