Michael Kay

Food and still life photographer

Michael is a commercial photographer who specialises in food and still life photography, working in a studio in Wimbledon, South London. He grew up in a cottage in South Snowdonia with no electricity, so his childhood nighttime memories are lit by the flickering flames of oil lamps.

He studied Photography at Manchester Polytechnic before moving down to London to seek his fortune. The majority of Michael's work nowadays is for food packaging, and his clients include many of the major supermarkets and food production companies in the UK and Europe.

Always strive to be the best at what you do. If you settle for second best you’ll always regret it.
