William Lingwood is one of Britain''s best-known names in food
photography. But he didn''t start that way. As an oil-worker in the
Middle East, he learned to cook from the books of Elizabeth David
and Jane Grigson, and was inspired by the photography of Robert
Fresom and Tessa Treagar. In 1990, he hung up his desert boots and
picked up a camera, and his work now appears in magazines, books,
and advertising campaigns. He photographed "Juices and Tonics" for
Ryland Peters & Small.
