Food Photography

One of the most important crew member for any type of food photography is the Food Stylist.

There is no subsitute for a great food stylist, period. Some chefs will think they can do this well but it is unlikely they can match a great food stylist. The only chefs I have worked with that are really close, are the great chefs in Italy. You may ask, "What is the difference?" The answer is in the purpose of the final result. Great chefs, who as part of their training is presentation, are totally focused on the prep, cooking and making a beautiful plate of food that has all of the aroma and flavors the ingredients can provide.

Great food stylistists do not care how it smells or tastes, they ONLY care, and are focused on, how it looks. This is why the great food stylists are well worth what they charge. They will first talk to the photographer or director to find out what kind of food is being shot and the ideas the photographer or director will have in mind.

The Crew:

Other than the food stylist, most food projects, both still photography and video direction, will have a limited crew. The photographer or camera operator, director, the food stylist, who may have 1 or 2 assistants depending on the scope of the project. The photography crew may have an assistant or two or more. Again this is wholy dependent on the breadth of the project.

The Photographer and/or The Director:

If the director or the photographer is shooting something for a personal project, they get to direct what they want for The Light, The Location and the Time of Day, which means to me it is all about the light. "Time of day" would be where we will shoot, like a backyard BBQ. A lot of food is shot in a studio or in a commercial kitchen.

If we are shooting for a client, then the layout or direction from the client will help shape the imagery and the time of day. Generally speaking the director or the photographer will have a lot of sway, but the number of images that need to be created will dictate a lot of what can be done in the time allowed.
