Food and Restaurant Photography

The Process

The first step is to schedule an on-site consultation at your restaurant or bar. We will discuss your photography ideas and design aesthetics for any food, cocktails and interior, exterior, etc. photography.  This will help us determine the best lighting, plating and styling options that fit your brand. Portraits do not require an on-site consultation, but I suggest we discuss the details before the shoot.  

During the photoshoot, I encourage the creative decision-maker to be on-site to approve food and cocktail plating and styling decisions.  Creative decisions for interior/exterior images and portraits can be made during the consultation.

Full Payment is due to book a photoshoot.


The Delivery

You will receive a link to view the images in a secure online gallery within 10 days of the photoshoot.  From your gallery, you will choose the final images to be retouched (proofing).  The final retouched images will delivered as high-resolution downloads within 5 days of proofing.


Usage rights of images are custom per client, but typically include use for website, online and print ads and social media use.
