A picture is worth a thousand words, a great picture is worth a thousand times more than that.

My goal in photography was always to become a food photographer and to be the best food photographer that I can be. Food photography has been my passion since the mid 1980s. What I had quickly learned is that while there are food photographs everywhere you look,New Jersey Product Photography Ice Bucket most of the work is going to the big names or to portrait/wedding photographers that don’t specialize in food photography and don’t have all the necessary skills needed (a classic case of you get what you pay for.) Especially when the little guy with the needed expertise and experience is in a small market that is right next door to the largest food photography market in the world.

To pay the bills, I started taking on product photography work. I showed some product work on my website but, I never promoted it.

Now, I do much more product photography than food photography (something that I wish was the other way around.) From bags to bottles, centrifuges to cleaning supplies, I get it all. I guess that it’s time to start a promotion for product photography.

About Jerry

I was a science teacher for 31 years. During that time I photographed wedding and Bar Mitzvahs for about 15 years but that was in the days before digital. Being a teacher, I had my summers free so I assisted food and commercial still life photographers in NYC for 3 summers and fell in love with it. Having a wife and a mortgage, it was not practical to give up a job in teaching and go into photography so I put off my dream of becoming a food photographer until I retired from teaching. Now I am living my dream - I am a food and product photographer servicing New York City, Philadelphia and all of New Jersey.
