Simone's Kitchen

Inspiration on Saturday; Regula from Miss Foodwise

I met Regula from the unimitable Miss Foodwise,  for the first time during the first Foodblogger Connect I attended all the way back in 2011. It was my first time among such a large crowd of foodbloggers and I sort of naturally leaned towards the few people who came from ‘my area’. Technically Belgium is not Holland but hey, it’s close enough right?

Regula is a person that stands out in a crowd. Not only for her cheerful and fun character but also because she has a unique style as a person and as a photographer. I’ve seen her photography grown in leaps and bounds and I think she belongs to some of the best out there. If someone like David Loftus is her fan, it says something about your skills right?

Other than that I love her as a person. Did you know she and her talented other half made my beautiful logo on my blog? Pretty sure I told you at some point but just as a small reminder… :) Enjoy her photography story!

How long have you been blogging and did you start out with taking food photos straight away?

I’ve been blogging since 2011, but started Miss Foodwise june 2012.
Initially I didn’t intend to become a photography heavy blog. I was a Graphic designer and although I’ve always done analogue photography because I went to art school, I kind off deviated from that path while I was building a career in Graphic design and Advertising.
