Food Photography

This was a project for one of my food clients for their Ethnic Cook at home ‘Meals-In-A-Box which makes cooking these meals not only easy but also a learning experience – everything is from scratch and takes no longer than any other meal to prepare.

  • Food Prepare by published Chef, Nitisha Patel (insta: @chef_nitisha).
  • Food styling: was a joint effort by the both of us.
  • Requested editing style: The client requested images a dark moody feel.

It’s official! dbp is now a production team

That’s right.

We have produced our first client advert and I have to say, it has been great working with them to create this.  From concept to delivery, dbp work closely with Red Rickshaw to ensure the product meets their needs.

It was a challenge that we happily took onboard and with that comes problem-solving and having to learn and grow the studio skillset into this area.  We’re pleased that the Red Rickshaw management and marketing teams are happy and we are looking forward to our ongoing projects.

Brief:

1 – To create a low cost ‘taste test’ style youtube channel video for food retailer Red Rickshaw to showcase the tasty Alphonso Mango for this year’s Mango Season  – circa 1m30s

2 – To create a shorter version for Facebook advertising – circa 30s

Time: 1 week to shoot, edit and launch – is now live on their channel.  See below…

Very Excited to be working with…

I am so very excited to have taken on a challenge over the past 2 weeks for an online ethnic food retailer (who at this stage will remain nameless) to help them revamp and launch their new website later this month.

For this, I have been photographing and editing all 2400 items (Front, Back & Info Zoom – nearly done) whilst on location in their warehouse.  Next week the challenge continues with recipe photography and videos!!

Bring it on March – standby for launch…!!

 

Introducing: ScrummyTV

One of my favourite things to photograph is food and recently created a handful of ‘Tasty’ type cooking recipe videos for my wellness blog DRGNFLY360’s ‘ScrummyTV‘ which will focus on curating recipes from reputable wellness professionals and enthusiasts and converting them into short and easy to follow videos.  These first 2 are just a test.

Here’s a sneak peek:
