Very soon you’ll be able to have your champagne cocktails delivered in style

Yesterday we were shooting for this summers afternoon teas, cocktails and new menu dishes in Podium restaurant at the Hilton Manchester Deansgate and Cloud 23. I can tell you now, it is absolute torture being a food photographer 🙂 One of the added bonuses we had whilst shooting, was listening to stories of Rock n Roll life in the sixties. Sinatra, Sammy Davies Jnr, Dean Martin, The Beatles, Glen Campbell, Rod Stewart, Elvis … to name just a few. On the next table to us, where we were shooting the cityscape shots and in earshot, was none other than Billy J Kramer & Chris Farlowe reminiscing with a group of musicians in town for the solid silver 60’s show. Absolute fab few hours. Anyway, here are a selection of shots off the menu. Rock n Roll baby.
