Patrice De Villiers arrives at Dark Energy.

by Andrew MacGregor


Dark Energy Films have added director and photographer Patrice De Villiers to their raft of tabletop talent.

As you can tell from her headshot, De Villiers likes to get hands-on with her subject matter. Whether it's fondling seafood or wrapping hands in spaghetti, nothing's off the table for the Londoner.

She's also living proof that some of the best ideas flow from a drink at the bar. After a late-night chat with Muse frontman Matt Bellamy about homemade pasta and red wine, De Villiers published 'Love Music, Love Food: The Rock Star Cookbook' in 2011 for Teenage Cancer Trust.

Patrice is a powerhouse of creativity and we can't wait to see what she does next!

Naturally, she's crossed paths with many a professional chef, including Heston Blumenthal. "Seemingly unbound by the regular rules of food photography, she continuously pushes the boundaries of what's possible," Blumenthal says. "The results are original and exciting and I'm a great admirer of her imaginative and fearless style."

As for Dark Energy founder and executive producer Matt Brown, he's chuffed to bring a "powerhouse of creativity" on board and "can't wait to see what she does next".
