Photography is my passion and as such, I love to create art with anything I see. As a food photographer, my goal is to have the client to whet their appetite just by looking at the picture. To be able to smell it, to savor it. That's the art of food photography, and I love it.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have done all types of photography (Stree, photojournalism, landscape) but as a food photographer, which is my main focus, light is my main tool to make the pictures special. How I manipulate shadows, light direction, the position of the light and the use of external natural light, all elements to make a picture pop. Whether is shooting under ideal light conditions or on the back alley of a convenient store, my goal is to make food look appetizing, special.
