As far as Austin food photographers go, I think the quality of my food photography and pricing make it hard for most clients to use anyone else to capture their perfected recipes on film. I’ve been photographing food since 2003 and learned a lot along the way.
I have worked with large corporations such as Carino’s Italian (over 60 images in portfolio from Carino’s) and I’ve also worked with small businesses such as a local meat market’s cafe menu.
Depending on what you’re looking to get out of the shoot, e.g. ‘we just need some quick shots for our menu/website’ or if you want the mouthwatering advertisement quality photographs the cost does, in fact scale.
Sometimes just one food photograph can take an hour or two to produce. The reason for this is the photographer and sometimes prop stylist (as well as art directors, and other creatives on the scene sometimes have input to keep branding and core message consistent) will set up, tweak and modify the scene’s elements. These elements include positioning of the plateware, silverware, and all other table decorations. The surface for the table (tile, wood, linen, etc.). The other two key elements in setting up the shot is the camera angle and the lighting.
While all of this is going on, the food stylist is in the kitchen preparing the dish to ‘spec’ while making special modifications to enhance the visual appearance of the food when it finally ends up on film. The food stylist will often undercook food, add various chemicals and sometimes put make-up on food just to make the photography look perfect!
