creative food photography for website images

Food photography at the Restaurant

Restaurant Food Photography on location in Macclesfield Cheshire

Restaurant Food Photography …

Just lately it seems every other shoot I’m doing is food photography , I’m not complaining as the creativity and freedom of photographing food is a firm favourite in my photography portfolio.

This commission was through the design agency Visual Sense based in Macclesfield Cheshire with Andrew Greenwood at the helm. The client a well known restaurant again in Macclesfield who were updating their website to reflect the quality of the dishes, they needed creative and vibrant images of the menu, which I believe we more than achieved.

The photography was shot on location at the restaurant itself. This enabled the very talented chef/patron to prepare the fabulous dishes that were a pleasure to photograph. The colour and texture combination of the food really shone through in the photography and with the use of window light (the sun came out) and a reflector or two the desired look was achieved. When photographing food my preferred style is natural day light. Of course if its not available I can replicate with studio lighting, but daylight was a reference. A tripod is again a preference. This allows me to find the right angle and then concentrate on styling the food and building the shot.

Looking forward to seeing the updated website soon and will update the blog with the link as soon as it’s live..

The food ? … it really does taste as good as it looks …
