Isabella Rose is a photographer and world traveller who is passionate about capturing life’s inspiring moments and images of beauty. This Safety Beach resident has just come off the back of playing a major part in producing the 2020 foodie ‘bible’ Eat.Drink Mornington Peninsula, and success has been decidedly flavour-inspired, sweet, savoury and everything delicious. The crew at Morn Pen Mag Pty Ltd have been thrilled to have her along for the ride so we thought you’d like to catch a photographic glimpse of her creative story and how it led to her being part of our team.

Isabella explains: “I used to work in corporate hospitality, running events and being creative, prior to focusing on my photography full time. I had recently done some photography for Veraison Restaurant, which is how (Eat.Drink publisher) Lisa Walton found me and I came to take photos and write for Eat.Drink Mornington Peninsula. Photography is all about the discovery and development of your own style. That’s what makes you stand out. My main focus when taking food shots is to encourage the reader to reach in to take a bite. I want to engage the reader by invoking an emotional response.”

And beauty there is in the myriad shots throughout the 2020 edition of Eat.Drink. Then there’s the front cover with chef Mark Poulter’s captivating seafood garden creation, perfect in all its fragility and micro detail with colours of aqua, purple, coral and seaweed green, which Isabella Rose Photographer is also responsible for styling and photographing. 

Isabella continues: “I’m incredibly passionate about photography and love to travel, my camera always at my side in search of capturing a special moment. As I love food I naturally also love to photograph it but I travel overseas regularly to photograph endangered wildlife and visit interesting communities and the people that live in them. I was fortunate enough to track a family of silverback gorillas in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest in Uganda for four hours on my own with a team consisting of trackers, Uganda Tourism Police for safety, Uganda wildlife authorities as well as a porter. It was an amazing experience to be so close and photograph a huge male gorilla and his family of females and babies. Another amazing experience was to go along with a team that were placing satellite trackers on the remaining wild lions in Ishasha, QEP in a last bid to try and protect them. Being able to be so close to these amazing animals was so humbling. I have also recently travelled to Kenya, Vietnam and Cambodia but there are still many places to explore with Antarctica and the Amazon on my list. There’s different skills and often empathy required for different types of photography, whether it’s a beautiful bride, an animal in a rainforest, or an old man who sits alone taking respite in a cigarette, or a magnificent plate of food.” 

If you’d like to be amazed closer to home, pick up a copy of the new Eat.Drink to take a look at Isabella Rose’s inspirational food-infused work. This adventurous and spirited photographer who moved around from Camberwell to Doncaster as a kid has come to rest where the good life grows by the sea. What’s next? More travel, more writing, more photos and more delicious food from the Mornington Peninsula found in Eat.Drink of course!
