Melissa Reynolds-James is a photographer and prop stylist based in South London. Melissa is most well known for her food and drink photography but she also shoots portraits and still life.

This Spotlight focuses on two of her most recent projects.

First, Melissa is proud to say she shot and styled the new cookbook from Emily Gussin 'Don’t Waste Your Pumpkin', published by Murdoch books and due for release this September. Melissa loved creating the cosy, fall feel of this book through her choice of props and use of lighting and composition.

Secondly Melissa has worked with Ocado across their Summer campaign. Her work can be found on the online supermarket’s website, socials, magazine and also OOH on digital displays in locations such as London Bridge. Perhaps most notable is the giant picnic blanket found on screen at London Euston Station, the biggest DOOH display in Europe!
