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, 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.
If you are following me, you have probably already seen my Food Photography Photo Book. Now, I have also created a Product Photography Photo Book. Please take a look at my new book and let me know what you think.
