“In house” food content production during Covid-19 pandemic

Food styling with motion & still food photography services

We are offering our “in house” production services to companies/individuals that need commercial-grade food images in our family studio. Following COVID-19 restrictions we are socially isolating together as food stylist and director/DP and working from home. This eliminates the new significant added cost of PPE and biosafety protocols. By doing this we remove risk and liability for clients and agencies since we are a family unit isolating together.

Combining world-class cinematography and still photography with our talented food stylist/chef we can produce food content from our fully equipped kitchen as we isolate together as a family.
