Georgia Glynn Smith

"a picture paints a thousand words"... and being rather dyslexic - I am fortunately (in my career) more of a picture person than a words person. Georgia Glynn Smith is one of the world’s leading food and lifestyle photographers and commercials directors. Georgia’s 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 90 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 five Leon books). She was featured in an article about her latest book RMCancerCookbook. which has had a resounding response from all over the world. 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. She founded N5 Studios in 2018 - a unique film studio in London dedicated to food and light. More recently she has started running supper clubs with collaborative chefs there and will be running courses on photography and social media. In 2020 she is rebuilding "the french house" where she will be running courses and retreats - also dedicated to food and light - and life. 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.
