The Berkeley Hotel is ultra-smart with a history of sublime service in the heart of Knightsbridge. A great place for alexandrapatrick to get to work.

The Berkeley luxury hotel has delighted guests with its welcoming atmosphere and sense of style for over a hundred years. Perfectly located, it’s just minutes from the most desirable Knightsbridge shops. It also has an enviable culinary reputation.

So when Duncan Callow, food photographer from alexandrapatrick was invited into the kitchen at The Berkeley, he snapped at the opportunity. Working closely with Executive Chef Shaun Watling, Duncan was able to get behind the scenes and capture the cooking heart of this great hotel.

After spending time shooting Shaun and his 35-strong brigade, Duncan “moved upstairs” to one of the hotel’s exquisite suites from where photographed some of Shaun’s signature dishes including carpaccio of sea bass and sesame crusted salmon.

Simon Neggars, PR Manager at The Berkeley Hotel was clearly delighted with the collaboration: “Duncan worked in an unobtrusively professional way, capturing the best of what our Head Chef, Shaun Whatling, and his team produced. The quality of his work is really top notch – befitting of everything we do at The Berkeley.”
