Food Styling

Preparing, cooking and styling mouth-watering meals and food products in a practical manner that is suitable for TV and still photography. Technical advice on food behaviour is also provided for art direction in order to create realistic yet compelling, on-trend shoot concepts.

Food Photography & Videos

Our Studio of professional food and drink photographers and videographers are on standby to receive your brief. Collaborators are recommended based on their specialty, experience and style to best suit client requirements.

Product Pack Styling

Careful preparation goes into the styling of product packs. ‘Hero packs’ are made up from printed templates which are individually assembled by hand to create flawless packaging. The packs are then styled and positioned for camera, to best display the branding and product contents.
