Family style food

One of our regular clients had us shoot some of their new dishes, this time in serving vessels, as opposed to plated. It’s always fun to change it up a bit.

Food photography can be tough, but when you’re shooting loaded hot dogs, how bad can it be!

Packaging for grocery products

leave a comment »

Out of all of the differing types of commercial work we do, packaging is the most meticulous. Of course all food photography takes time and is complex, but packaging specifically takes that extra level of detail. Below are two final pieces we did for a client last year.  In each case we worked closely with the end client (Snikiddy) and the ad agency (Unison.) Both projects required extensive testing and collaboration between the production crew, the client and the agency.  In the end we had great results and I was only seeing fries in my sleep for three nights after the shoot.

More Savory food items

leave a comment »

We get to shoot some great food items on a quarterly basis for many of our clients, as their menus change frequently.  This week, pork loin, honey bbq wings and a bison burger from Glory Days Grill. According to their beverage director, after the table tents were launched, sales of the bison burger took off!
