The food photographs in the below collection were captured during various commercial or editorial assignments for newspapers and clients that run cafés, restaurants, and hotels.
On a personal level, I am far from a typical “foodie”. That said, I have always enjoyed and appreciated the artistic and culinary experience of eating food from wildly different cultures, both made from original recipes, experimental, and fusion – preferably with a twist here and there!
How food is presented is incredibly important, whether that be at home, in a restaurant, on a website, as a tweet, or a TikTok short.
Capturing appetizing images of professionally prepared and presented meals is inspiring but can often be challenging, especially when captured “live” in a scene where poor or mixed lighting conditions can interfere aesthetically.
The bottom line: professionally taken photographs help attract guests. When they find your website or social media channel, or, look at a menu to see what you have to offer, the chances of them ordering your appetizing suggestions immortalized photographically are just so much higher.
