Food Photography Portfolio: Five Star Cuisine to Street Food Favorites


The surest way to understand the spirit of a new place is to try out its food.

From the creations of five-star celebrity chefs to street food classics that can be had for less than a dollar, great food can be found in the most unexpected places.

During more than ten years of editorial and commercial photography assignments, I’ve been lucky to sample some of the world’s best dishes – and when it’s great, it really is a work of art.

This gallery of food photography from magazine assignments other travels includes a few of my very favorite food photos from around the world.

Most of these photos were created for lifestyle and travel magazines to illustrate editorial profiles about the chefs and their culinary creations. These assignments are always fun to do because chefs are always interesting people, and when the photos are finished I get to try out the dishes (one of the best perks of being a professional food photographer!).

I love to shoot in the natural setting of the restaurant or food stall where the dish was created – I want you to feel the experience of being there and sitting down to try some of these amazing recipes.

Like the rest of my work, I shoot food photos in a photojournalistic style that captures the details of the food as the chef intended – photographed to work with both print and online publications.

The dishes you’ll find here are from some of the best restaurants and cafes to be found anywhere in the world, including: Locavore, Drifter Uluwatu, Mama San, Cuca, Hanging Garden, Hayahay, Sequoia Yacht, Urchin, Jemme, and many more.

If you like the style of the food photography you’ve found here, just send me an e-mail and I’ll get back to you right away.

I’m always looking for new and creative people to collaborate with on photo shoots. I’m based most of the year in Bali, Indonesia, but am available to travel internationally. Please get in touch – I’d love to talk to you about creating a portfolio of food photos to capture the essence of your restaurant or culinary creations.
