Polaris Creative

Mouth-watering food photography

This business starts with the story of Jules Sherred. Jules has combined his love of food and photography into a flourishing business. Jules was introduced to the world of photography by observing his photographer father as a young child. “His subjects were always very interesting and neat,” says Jules. This, combined with his love of food and culture, laid the seeds for his future.

With a keen eye and attention to detail along with the philosophy that food should evoke the trifecta of memory, emotion, and hunger in people, Jules Sherred is an unparalleled emerging talent in the field of food and lifestyle photography. His cookbook Crip Up the Kitchen: Realistic Tips, Tricks, and Recipes for the Disabled Kitchen is due to be published by TouchWood Edition in Spring 2023.
