Capturing your business using a professional photographer is a very good idea. Communicate to the world what you do. Give them the behind the scenes activity and maybe even show case your team. I think people are curious of what you do, at least I am. I will often ask, what do you do? Where? and what train to the city do you take? We humans are very curious.

In these images I captured the chefs from Tavern at Gray Barns and from Terrain Garden Cafe. In each shoot portraits were taken and shots of the food as well.

Here is Chef Ben Freemole captured on location at The Gray Barns Restaurant

These are very simple images captured with a shoot through umbrella and a shallow depth of field. A lot of the shoot is making the client feel comfortable, which is something I am very good at.

The food photography was shot with a light modifier and a piece of white foam core to reflect light into the shadows.

I love shooting black and white as well. Most cases I will take the raw file into photoshop where I will apply a bw filter.

One of the best parts about photographing chefs, is that they usually let you eat the sample plates!
