Typically, I make the magic happen for you with in-home photo sessions in your comfortable space. At home you have the freedom to let your hair down, twist it up, push it back, tie it up, take it off, or do whatever makes you happy. Alternatively, you can schedule your photo shoot outside in gorgeous natural daylight. Scenic New York City has many amazing places to host your shoot. Food photography can be photographed in studio, but is typically photographed at your location.
For the times when studio photography is a must, we can rent a small studio (at an additional cost to your session). I can set up an unobtrusive lighting design to craft an inviting look for you. My lighting is simple and classy, presenting you or your food in a flattering light.
My photo sessions are always brief. This allows us to use the time productively, rather than taking unlimited photos simply to use up the session. Consequently, I don’t burden you with hundreds of repetitive, unnecessary snapshots. A normal session with me yields less than one dozen photos. Why so few? Because I understand the vision and get the job done. Less is truly more.
Are you ready for your moment? Great! Be sure to wear clothing that accentuates your shape, personality, and complexion, and avoid wearing visible logos. Make sure you’re refreshed, free from stress and stimulants, and have your makeup already applied. Makeup is always recommended because I do not retouch photographs to modify or obscure anyone’s natural features. While there’s no makeup for food photography, a qualified stylist is your best option to give your photographs a winning edge.
