5 Minutes With Nelly le Comte Photography

5 minutes with Nelly le Comte Photography helping gift hampers online Australia

We sat down with Nelly le Comte, the talented food photographer behind our Byron Bay Cookbook - A Taste of the Region. We're featuring this cookbook in one of our new hampers called 'Diner's Delight' because we know how much our customers love local produce and healthy food ideas.


The Byron Bay Cookbook showcases recipes from across the Northern Rivers region and includes food inspiration from producers, caterers and restauranteurs. Some of our favourite chefs from the regions top restaurants share their secrets, leaving us with a mouth-watering collection of tasty recipes we can't wait to try for a dinner party!


Tell us how long you’ve been doing photography for and what inspired you to start your business?
I started Photography in my early twenties and then studied at the Royal Academy of fine arts in the Hague. After finishing my degree, I went to work for a lifestyle and fitness magazine as their chief photographer.
