Photographing Nadiyah Hussain at the Flavours Food Festival

Last year it was James Martin’s turn, this year was Nadiyah Hussain taking to the main demonstration stage at the ever popular Flavours Food Festival at Elsecar Heritage Centre, and I had just as much fun photographing her as I did James.

Donning a high vis and looking more like a police officer than a photographer I made my way around the crowds soaking up the wonderful smells and sounds whilst waiting for Nadiyah to take to the stage.

I was lucky enough to spend some time chatting with her inbetween her book signings and she is one of the nicest people you will ever meet. What I found most heart-warming of all was how many young women and girls came to get their books signed and talked about her being their inspiration. I consider myself blessed to have been part of such a wonderful day.
