Hein van Tonder

About me

For as long as memory serves, I have references and recollections that involve food. This passion has brought me to create and develop Heinstirred. As a South African food photographer, stylist and writer based in Cape Town, I’m at my happiest in the kitchen, behind the camera or better still, both. My work has been featured on food24.com, food52.com, Conde Naste Traveller, Huffington Post USA, Canada and UK, Elle Decor Sweden, Buzzfeed, The Kitchn, brit.co and feedfeed.info. I contribute regularly to Food and Home Entertaining and the Sunday Times Food Weekly, as well as develop and photograph recipes for clients such as Marie Claire Cuisine et Vins de France, Knorr SA, Checkers and Bibo. Photography & Video clients include Taste Magazine, Food and Home Entertaining, Stork Bake, One and Only Cape Town, Manley Communications, The Test Kitchen, Nobu Cape Town and Pink Lady Apples SA, Striped Horse Beer and The Kove Collection. Awards include being the Winner of the Food Blogger category in the 2017 Pink Lady Food Photographer of the Year competition; Finalist in the Marks and Spencer Food Portraiture as well as the Food Blogger categories in the 2016 Pink Lady Food Photographer of the Year competition; Category Runner Up in the 2016 Njord Sustainable Food Photo Competition, Finalist in the Food Blogger category of the 2015 Pink Lady Food Photographer of the Year competition and Runner Up in the Food & Wine Category of the 2015 African Blogger Awards. Ever evolving as a food lover, my favourite pastime is travelling to eat with itineraries built around flavours, meals and restaurants. My latest eating trips include Beirut and Copenhagen, allowing me to discover cuisines that easily rival my love for all things Italian. I have been most fortunate to have worked on or contribute to the following books: La Creuzette – The Story of a House (2016) (Quivertree Publications) : Photographer Cobb Recipe Book (2016) : Photographer, Stylist and Contributor Sunday Times Food Weekly 4 (2015) (Times Media) : Contributor and Contributing Photographer
