Food Photography Pricing & Packages

 

Food photography does not follow a generic format. It is not enough that food merely looks nice in an advertisement, cookbook, your menu card, takeaway, website or your social media pages. Your products or dishes need to leap off the page or the screen, full of so much zest and sizzle that it leaves your audience salivating.

As my client, your satisfaction is my sole focus. I know the day of a shoot is stressful so I do everything I can to help ease the pressure, putting in the time to understand your business and make all of the necessary preparations so there are no delays and we can get straight to work.

Whether you need high-quality photos for your advertisement or catalogue, to promote your catering business, for packaging, or PR and editorial purposes, as a professional food photographer I will meet the brief and give you images that make your food look, well, good enough to eat!

 

 

 

Superior food photography requires meticulous lighting and attention to detail.


Each element of a dish needs to be visible and identifiable by the viewer, yet the image needs to be cohesive - just like a recipe. 

  

Food photography is a refined skill. I know what shots I am there to get, and I work together with clients, but can also work with food stylists and art directors to get them done.

Food Photography pricing and packaging

 

Food Photography Pricing

Some photographers may offer hundreds of photos and in very short timeframes and low pricing. This is hardly a quality offer. Why risk disappointment with a semi-pro or cheap alternative? Exceptional food photography is an investment because it is crucial in the sales process. You will want images that show the great results of your efforts, with food photos that leap of the page, full of colour and life, and that is worth paying a little extra. Ask any of our happy clients who will tell you that it is worth it.

The main camera I use is high-end professional EOS 1DX with a variety of lenses and lighting. Having always at least two cameras with me and as much equipment as I need to prepare for any eventuality, I can go wherever you need me to be whether that’s in a studio, restaurant, a kitchen or on location. I and my team provide high-quality photos with exceptional attention to detail and flawless editing.

No wedding is complete without a wedding cake, so we were delighted to be asked to do the cake photos for esteemed cake maker Elizabeth Solaru and her book, Opulencia.

Room Seasons products have that extra quality and stylisation that every creator loves. Nicolas and Damien founders of the company are two talented professionals who studied together at the internationally acclaimed Institut Paul Bocuse in Lyon France.
