YRSFood, Stafford Restaurant Photography

Food photography is vital to Staffordshire.

YRSCommercial, Commercial PhotographyWe have some of the best food producers in the UK and incredible restaurants, right here in Staffordshire! YRSFood, Food Product  Photography.How could we live without Hartington Cheese, Stoke on Trent's Oatcake, Titanic Beer, and let's not forget Martmite, Branston Pickle & of course the hop capital of the world, Burton on Trent & Burton Ale! So food photography is vital for Stoke on Trent, Leek, Crewe, Stafford, yes the Staffordshire region. But why 'professional' food photography? It's a great competition leveller. No matter how large your competition is, when investing in good food photography and a specialist food photographer, you can become as strong a food & beverage 'brand' or high street name, as anyone else. We're talking about food photography that demonstrates visually, the promise of your products taste, the quality of ingredients and the care of production or preparation - whether you are a manufacturer or restaurant owner.

How do we work with our clients?

YRSCommercial, Commercial PhotographyHow times have changed. We rarely shoot in our own facilities these days - clients want the flexibility of us shooting on site whether it be for product development, dish creation, YRSFood, Food Product products or a restaurant menu. When we do shoot back at our own facilities, we can cater for most food product types with storage facilities to keep it fresh and when required, kitchen and cooking options as needed. Clients can send us food product to shoot from anywhere in the UK or if very perishable - we fetch it from you free of charge.

If you do want us to shoot on-site, whether restaurant food or catering company no worries, we not only bring the studio environment to you, we bring along the props store as well - so you're effectively getting an in house photography studio for your food, product or menu.

YRSFood, Food Product Photographer

A Food photographer that also does styling.

YRSCommercial, Commercial PhotographyWe are not chefs, however, we work with chefs on styling and also style our own dishes and any products in food & lifestyle photography commissions. It sort of makes commercial sense for our clients, as you no longer have two costs- a food stylist and photographer - just one - us.

We do not say this is the only way we work though, we will work with any food stylist if you wish us to - whether you source them or ourselves. As for working with chef - they are in total control, our only guidance is how their creativity on the plate extends to the photography composition.YRSCommercial, Commercial Photography

Food Advertising, Editorial or Packaging?

YRSCommercial, Commercial PhotographyAs a food photographer - we do all forms of food photography. Some of our clients require nothing more than simple styling of their product and then ther are others who will ask us for a hi-key white background - it's cut out to fit over other designs or used in ecommerce (e.g. Amazon). Thypically this style of food photography iis for packaging or PNG where designers can over lay the food image onto another campaign image. Then we have other clients where we do advertising or require lifestyle images to be used in publishing, web content and editorial also - recipe, and cookbook publishing.

In such cases we take a strong brief from you and then as photographer and stylist we compose a number of executions to sell your products as an experience. Lots of fun and loads of challenges!
