Food Photography for cook book publications

21 Mar 2012| 5 comments | Food
It was a great experience doing the food photography for this publication. All the plates was high-end creations of contemporary mediterranean cuisine. Cooked with extra care and attention by the chefs, this food photography project included more than 1500 creative recipes and equivalent plates. I enjoyed the eight months of shooting, editing and archiving thousands of pictures. 45 cook books were published in three languages by Maliaris-Peadia Publications. I would have liked to be able to tell Leonardo Garcia and Giannis Margaris what talented Chefs they are, but unfortunately they never prepared a dish for a shooting that the photographer could taste! Almost everything was completely uncooked, to protect the food sight and colour, which is what we do with a vast majority of food shootings. Except of course from the cake at the end… That indeed was cooked!

    The picture with pork over the mash potatoes looks like 3D. Just could take and eat it! Brilliant photos!
