Sacramento Food Photography
What is Food Photography?
Food photography is a still life photography genre used to create attractive photographs of food. It is a specialization of commercial photography, the products of which are used in websites, advertisements, magazines, menus, packaging or cookbooks. Professional food photography is a collaborative effort, with a photographer and the restaurant. Food photography is a very specific genre, as it demands a passion and a deep understanding of the products: let's remember that ice cream melts, caramel sticks, and fresh herbs wither. A beautifully executed food image will make the viewer's mouth water and their stomach crave your dish.
As an avid lover of food, you better believe 40% of my iPhone camera roll consists of the meals that have been placed before me. Capturing the cooking process and the final presentation makes me happy to be able to call myself a food photographer.
I love capturing the emotion and care that is given to create these beautiful works of food. I work with the chefs to help capture this so they feel like their portraits and photos represent their life’s work. My photographs of chefs have graced the newsstands in the Los Angeles Times, Bon Appétit Magazine, Food & Wine, Everyday Food to name a few. No matter the size of restaurant, we can work together to get the full portfolio you are looking for.
You need an experienced photographer who knows the kitchen inside and out, but also how to capture the architecture. As an architectural photographer I use Photoshop, supplemental lighting and image layering to achieve the best restaurant photo for you. I often have to shoot staff and patrons, the interior of the restaurant, as well as menu items. This means you need a skilled photographer in food, portraits and architectural photography to bring your project together. This is my favorite type of photography and I would love to work with you to get your beautiful images that make people want to eat your food and visit your restaurant.
No matter what city I am in, I am always looking for the most delicious restaurant to see and explore. If you are interested in having one of the best Sacramento food photographers capture your restaurant or food, don’t hesitate to reach out for a call or drinks to discuss.
