Back in 1st Century Roman Britain Apicius said “We eat first with our eyes”. And if social media is anything to go by, we Simply haven’t stopped’. In fact, one of the most natural human instincts is to forage and satiate our appetites and, in the absence of hunter-gathering pursuits, we have developed what scientists call a ‘visual hunger’. A way of fulfilling this need using images that tickle the taste buds and make mouths water

Scientific studies have even been carried out into the relationship between the way food is plated and the direct effect this can have on hunger, and when you add in these results into the mix then professional commercial food images can be worth their weight in gold.

If the way to the heart really is through the stomach, then you want to make sure your customers’ hearts are beating strong for your restaurant Whether you’re a small cafe, a fine dining establishment, a gastropub, or even an author or chef wanting to showcase your recipes, it all starts with mouth-watering, full-colour images of your food that take customers on a visual journey; and this journey starts before they even pick up their forks.

As a professional food photographer, it is this visual hunger that I aim to feed, capturing images that showcase your menus, bring guests to your restaurant and ensure your website is busy with orders. I make diners hungry by capturing images of your food and drink that look delicious and taste even better.

Commercial food photography should be about differentiating yourself from the crowd and showcasing your expertise. It starts with a strong brief and ends with the perfect shot.

There are countless uses for food photography, which is why I always carefully plan a shoot with a client to ensure that the resulting images can be used to their greatest potential on websites, menus, social media platforms, newsletters, and printed literature.
