I love food photography, but it makes me hungry! The best part of that is that I mostly get to take the 'subjects' home :) More than that, I like helping restaurants promote their food and get clients in. These images were created on location for La Huerta in Fayetteville, but La Huerta has several other locations all within the same family. The owner admitted to taking his original photos for his menu with his iPhone and said it was a step up from no photos on the menu at all, but when my images got on their menu it helped sales even more. When I do a food shoot, I want the images to make people hungry. That is my goal, because that's what the restaurant WANTS! Hungry yet?
I always enjoy my shoots with Celebrate Arkansas magazine, especially when food is involved… ok, and I get to eat it. I, recently, photographed ice cream, among other things, at Spark Cafe’ in Bentonville, next door and adjoining the Walmart 5-10 museum. I’m sad to say, I’ve never been there, but I’m so glad I had the chance, I WILL be back, the ice cream was GREAT. The cafe’ has a very cool retro feel in every part, from the table tops, straw dispensers and wall decor. I have been through the museum several years ago, but it’s always interesting to see the items in the 5-10 store. If you’re around Bentonville, take the time to stop in.
