Note - All of the following images are 100% color profiled. This is not the same thing as simply "white balanced". Color profiling is a front to back workflow process requiring the use of this device, and a disciplined approach to color management. If you have products, and you need them to look 100% correct you must have a provider that is a master of this process.
New for 2016 I am offering full service Food Photography.
The following set of images is a soft launch. I am in the process of shooting a TON of new Food images and will fill this section out as new images are released.
I am fully trained and equipped for this project type. I have a complete food styling kit, and can execute shoots in studio, or at your location. As I am also a specialist in model and architectural photography, I can cover staff photography, AND showing off your location. Adding Food as a category was organic and made sense to my workflow.
If you need a complete, turnkey solution to rebuild your menus and web sites, I can handle all of it.
The following images were crafted to show a wide variety of shooting and finishing styles. You will find very shallow depth of field, with matte finish to look "dreamy", and very deep depth of field with high contrast finish for menus or advertising, to focus stacked, and various other techniques.
I am extensively trained and experienced in this form of photgraphy, both from the film days, and more recently. I have a complete location food styling kit, and stand ready to come to your location to help build an amazing new menu or advertising project.
To inquire about hiring, please see this form, and I'll get right back to you.
I am shooting a TON of exciting new material this year, especially in Food. Sign up on the front page to be notified when new content is released.
For all prospects, I highly encourage you to read The Workflow Process page, as it goes over the entire booking and production process in detail, but if you just need a brief overview of the Product shoot process, it goes like this:
I need to know about the product(s) I'll be working with. I will need example links, images, etc. You do that using this form.
If you are a company in need of Lifestyle images, either for editorial or advertising usage, and require a complete turnkey shoot, you will still use this form, but I will need additional time to contact, get approval for, and book the model(s). I will select my crew according to criteria for the shoot.
Once you have filled out the entire form, I will contact you immediately with follow up questions, usually within one hour if I'm not traveling or shooting at that moment. Please make sure you're available for the next two hours or so after you submit your form.
Once I have the answers to the follow up questions, I can give you an estimate of the fees, costs, and time table for the completed delivery of the shoot or campaign, depending on how large a scale a production you require.
I will ask you about your budget, as this will affect every other choice we can make. Please be ready with an answer to this question, because wtihout that information, I can't do much to help you. See The Workflow Process page for more on this.
Once you approve the final details, I need to you remit a retainer according to the type and scope of the shoot. Once that is available, and I can book the crew, we can do the production.
At this stage, I will need you to release the products to me, either via in person pick up, or shipping, depending on where you are.
In the case of shoots involving models, if a local model cannot be sourced, we will either have to have a model travel to me, or I will have to travel to them.
I will execute the production, and make available the proofs usually same day, unless a lot of traveling is required.
Once proofs are finalized and approved, the contractual number of images or more are finalized, and uploaded to a gallery that only the client has access to.
That's pretty much it. MUCH more detail on every stage of the process is in The Workflow Process page.
So let's get started on that product photography shoot!
