I am a San Francisco Bay Area-based visual artist specializing in food and product imaging which includes still life, motion, and video. While I have over 30,000 photos delivered and love to make beautiful images, the reason why you would hire me is for my ability take your great idea to the next level.
My strength lies in a nimble and lean approach to creative visual results. Clients love getting creative content at a reasonable cost since my studio team can art direct, style, and shoot their images. I enjoy working closely with marketing directors, brand managers, ad agencies, art directors, PR firms, brand strategists, graphic designers, influencers, chefs, and entrepreneurs to build vivid, authentic imagery that engages the visual taste of the viewer.
My studio features its own extensive surface and prop house, a fully-equipped kitchen, 2 still-life production studios, an outdoor studio, and a post-production station. Efficiency with production for busy clients comes from a proven creative process that quickly gets to the heart of what the client desires. Projects smoothly transition from creative brief to final image using my fully-equipped studio and in-house team. I also enjoy creating recipes and content. Work on location is always embraced, too!
