Past Clients and History:
I have been focusing my camera on my favorite subject, food, since 2005. Over the years I have continued honing my skills and developing my passion for food photography. I have done assignments for enRoute Magazine (my photos of food were published in the in-flight magazine of Air Canada) – for restaurants such as West (Granville Street) and Grub (Main Street). I also took photos at a menu opening party for the upscale restaurant r.tl in Yaletown and the restaurant now features some of these photos on their digital signs. In other work, I have photographed the dishes of a talented Vancouver-based personal chef (Chef Chop Chop) as well as the unique and delicious dishes of Tandoori Delight Foods.
A typical photo shoot:
- We’ll arrange a time, preferably during the afternoon on a weekend, when your restaurant can prepare some food and can set aside a table by the window for me to take photos. Natural light is best.
- I’ll arrive at the appointed time, and spend approximately 30 to 60 minutes taking photos of the dishes.
- I’ll return to my studio and spend approximately 30 minutes selecting the best photos and doing minor editing if necessary.
- I’ll provide the photos to you electronically or in the desired electronic format (CD, FTP, or YouSendIt).
Typically I can shoot four or five dishes in 60 minutes, and then spend 30 minutes editing the photos.
Food Styling, is it necessary?
Typically for a professional food photo shoot, one or more food stylist is involved. A food stylist will arrange the food in a way that best represents the dish in the most attractive fashion. While I do not offer a food styling service myself, I can provide referrals to food stylists who can work with your chef to make your food look as good as it tastes.
However, a photo shoot with a stylist will often take more time. Depending on the types of images you’re looking for, a shoot may take 4 to 6 hours.
Graphic Design Services?
Typically a restaurant will need some graphic design work done for images that are used in menus or signs. I offer referral services to talented graphic designers in the Vancouver BC Canada area. Please contact me for more information.
A typical invoice will include:
– Time to travel to and from your restaurant from downtown Vancouver (example: 30 minutes)
– Time spent on location (example: 60 minutes)
– Time spent post-processing the photos (example: 30 minutes)
– Digital photo delivery (no extra charge).
