That will be a delicious, hand-baked bread! In this dynamic image, the baker breaks fresh eggs over flour, from which he will soon knead a delicious fresh loaf. In this dark setting, the light falls beautifully on his hands and work surface. The brown and yellow tones make a warm whole of this scene.

Just as the writer works multiple storylines into his novel, the composer composes a symphony with different instruments and a painter fills his blank canvas stroke by stroke, I too work on my food photographs: layer by layer, the image is composed until the perfect balance between reality, design and atmosphere emerges. Every element in the image is a decision and contributes to the story the photo wants to tell or the atmosphere the scene exudes.
For my photographs, I like to use natural light, especially light falling in through cracks and holes. With that incidence of light and shadow, I try to enhance the character of my images.
A food photo requires several disciplines: a chef, art director, food stylist and photographer work together to create an overall image. As a culinary editor and chef, I write and cook my own recipes. I also take care of the styling and do the photography. Because I control the entire process, I can put together the mood image I envision without compromise.
