Being an avid foodie I love the sights, sounds and smells of a bustling restaurant. Capturing images of food as they come from the pass to tables, or capturing the staff greeting and serving customers can tell people allot out the vibe and quality of a restaurant, even before they read the reviews. The soul and essence of a restaurant should be able to be conveyed in 6-8 shots. We eat with our eyes….we also choose where to eat with our eyes. I would typically spend 3 – 4 hours at a restaurant, watching the flow between breakfast/lunch service or lunch/dinner service. This gives the client a broad range of food shots they can use for marketing, and also allows the staff time to relax and be natural with customer interactions.
Capturing beautiful rooms and location shots of hotels/resorts are always satisfying assignments. It allows me to use my skills as a landscape photographer, and combines it with the social interaction you get at events and promotional launches. For me this is truly the best of both worlds. Bookings can range from 1 hour, half day and full day.
