Exquisite food and wine photography that reveals your authentic best 

San Francisco | Silicon Valley
S Corporation with W9
Proud to be a member of:


I am a San Francisco Bay Area-based chef and food photographer whose career with food spans three decades. My approach to food photography is meticulous because of my knowledge and relationship with ingredients, cooking processes, and flavor pairings.

My work as a chef, stylist, and photographer has received many awards including APA Top 100, ACF Gold Medal, and a juried exhibit at Art Basel Miami. I trained at the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York, and the Faschule Richemont in Luzern, Switzerland and was an Executive Pastry Chef with Hyatt Hotels and Resorts. I completed a Visual Art Certificate for photography and graphic design at UC Berkeley Extension in SF.

A lean approach to creative design is one of my strengths. I enjoy working closely with business owners and creative stakeholders to build vivid, authentic imagery that engages the visual taste of the viewer. My eyes stay on a project from start to finish. 

My studio is located in Castro Valley in the San Francisco Bay Area and features hundreds of carefully curated props and unique surfaces, a professionally equipped kitchen,  fast WiFi, a natural light studio, strobe studio, and client seating areas. I also travel globally for clients and have shot in NY, DC, LA, Seattle, Portland, Europe, and many other locations. 

 

 


Clients include Paramount Studios, Hilton, Dupont, Red Boat Fish Sauce, Partner’s Crackers, Eko Coffee, Rigatoni’s, Tarla, Wildflour Bakery and Cafe, Pacific Kosher Grill, University of Arizona, Caviar Affair Magazine, Down ETC, DoorDash Corporate, GrubHub Corporate, Sysco, Forest Design, many chefs, entrepreneurs, and professional artists.
