It is not suprising that Graham is a director in demand, with his ability to make food, as well as chefs look fabulous combined with the ability to direct stunts and performance.
Starting from the dream job of directing centre piece stunts for Top Gear, Graham was one of the team that helped turn the show into one of the world’s most successful television formats ever, with sales to over 200 countries and over 360 million viewers.
Gordon Ramsay’s The F Word marked a key change in Graham’s, career and earned him a reputation for making food look irresistible. Next up, Graham was to turn Nigel Slater from an acquired taste into a mainstream BBC One face. Graham’s format and contemporary visual package made Nigel Slater’s Simple Suppers a runaway success attracting an unprecedented audience of 4.5million viewers. The series won the Guild Of Food Writers TV Programme of the Year 2010 and is now in its fourth season having spawned three Christmas specials.
On the back of this achievement, Graham was hand-picked by the US production company Pacific Production to bring his directing magic to the new Food Network series, The Pioneer Woman, featuring food blogger Ree Drummond making her TV debut. The series has just been picked up for its third season and has made Drummond a global star.
Following all of this TV success, Graham was head hunted to direct the multi million pound Ad campaign for Waitrose featuring Delia Smith and Heston Blumenthal. These ads proved so successful that once aired, the featured products would fly off the shelves, and in the case of Hestons Christmas offering, end up on Ebay!
