Maria Bell Photography


Maria Bell is a freelance photographer based between the Isle of Wight and London.

Her work centres around food, lifestyle, portraiture and the environment with a particular interest in the intersection of nature, sustainability and its effects on wider society; especially within food and farming.

Her background as a writer has instilled an intuitive approach to visual storytelling, documenting depth and narrative with an unmistakable intimacy.

She’s commissioned regularly for The Guardian and is published in high profile editorials such as Conde Nast Traveller and Kinfolk. Her commercial assignments have seen her work alongside the country's top chefs, restaurants and brands including Angela Hartnett, Soho House, Smokestak, Bloom & Wild and Toast as well as on books with leading industry publishers Hardie Grant & Quadrille.
