There are a lot of factors that go into taking enticing food photos. Food often doesn’t look as delicious as it tastes right off the skillet. In order to make your dish look it’s best, you need the best ingredients, well thought out lighting, accessories that play off your dish’s theme and expertise food styling.
As a food photographer, you need a solid knowledge base of the correct camera equipment, editing software, composition and lighting. But even more, you need to connect your technical ability with the emotional side of food. Your goal is to make mouths water and stomachs gurgle. You need to produce that same feeling people get when they smell baked cookies or hear bacon sizzling on the stove. That one moment that connects your viewer with your image.

We plan the location, location lighting, dish styling and accessories.
