I am a San Francisco Bay Area-based product and food photographer, whose career with food spans three decades. I trained at the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York, and the Richemont Fachschule in Luzern, Switzerland. My approach to food photography is not only meticulous it take a deep dive to create compelling, creative content. My knowledge and relationship with ingredients, cooking processes, recipe development, and flavor pairings allows me to play in a most delicious way. I always focus on "appetizing" and "enticing" for food and anything I shoot. Plus I am a mom who cooks at home so I "get" what consumers want, too!
My experience as a chef, stylist, and photographer has received many awards including APA Top 100, ACF Gold Medal, and a juried exhibit at Art Basel Miami. Serving as Executive Pastry Chef for 2 Hyatt Hotels and Resorts, I served many stars, corporate clients, foreign dignitaries, and Super Bowl teams. I completed certificates for Visual Art and Graphic Design at U.C. Berkeley Extension in San Francisco.
A lean approach to creative design is one of my strengths. I enjoy working closely with business owners, brands, and designers to build vivid, authentic imagery that engages the visual taste of the viewer.
My studio is located in Castro Valley in the San Francisco Bay Area and features hundreds of carefully curated props and unique surfaces, a professionally equipped kitchen, 3 still-life production studios, outdoor studio, and motion production studio. I am very experienced with on location as well as “remote” production for busy clients and guarantee my results. I can take any project from creative brief to final image using in-house or outside teams.
