Food photography

Why do I love being a food photographer?

Who wouldn’t love being an Auckland food photographer. There is so much good food in Auckland and the variety is also pretty amazing.

The play of light revealing the textures. Colours being brought to their full by the light. The vibrancy of the dishes in the finished images. Making the food seemingly smell off the page. Making the viewers mouth water just looking at the image. I love it. It never gets old.

Even if I don't always get to eat the food which we photograph, but sometimes I do and I won't lie I love that too.

Why you need to hire a food photographer (yes need)

To really bring a focus to each dish, enabling you to have images in your marketing which get results. You need someone trained and focused on producing stunning images of food. That is my aim as a food photographer and I do it time and time again. Creating images to prompt that restaurant booking, the food book purchase, or even just that social media like. Have you ever looked at a food image and then had a strong desire to eat food similar to the dish in the image? That is why you NEED a food photographer for your business.

Why me?

I use photographic lighting to really bring out dimension in each dish, making the food the absolute hero of the image. Showing the foods shape and texture. I really enjoy processing food images because of how light, when used properly brings the images to life. When retouching the images I get a buzz from something as simple as the texture of a mint leaf, being brought out of the image by the light I have placed across it. I love this attention to detail that working as a food photographer demands and I thrive on it.

What past clients have said after having me as their food photographer

"Adam completed our food photos after a recommendation from a friend, and what a great recommendation.
We had the day with Adam and worked through all menu options, making to order and photographing as we went. Adam was great to work with and open to our ideas and suggestions, along with putting in his own.
The quality of the photos received have been awesome, and the web portal for storing the images (for ease of accessing) has been amazing (when needing to have other access this).
I will certainly be using Adam again for our next cafe, and also some additional food images at menu change time!"
