Food Photography Tips & Tricks on Photoshelter

Croissant & Latte

Lauren Margolis posted a great piece today on Photoshelter’s blog with some food photography tips from photographers like yours truly.

Food photography, however, plays a huge role across many different businesses. Previously limited to the food industry (restaurants, markets, specialty food stores) and food-dedicated publications, food photography now spans a wide breath of editorial publications and commercial/advertising campaigns. Food is most often associated with comfort and happiness, so it’s no surprise that clients like American Express and CNN are now seeking food photographers.

Bottom line? No matter what kind of photographer you call yourself, it’s advantageous to have some food photography skills under your belt. You’ll also want to stand out from the crowd of amateur food photographers – showing clients that you have the experience and know-how to deliver the best images.

Interviewed on PhotoShelter

As you may or may not know, I’ve been a PhotoShelter customer for several years now. I love their service. It is, by far, the BEST way to show proofs to clients and deliver high rez finals. It also easily fits in to my digital workflow with Lightroom via a plugin, so using it saves me tremendous amounts of time and energy. Time and energy that I now spend focusing on my business, rather than mundane tasks that waste countless hours like creating Adobe web galleries, FTPing files, or (cringe) burning DVDs.

Every job I’ve delivered since 2010 is online high rez. Not only can my current clients redownload their images at any time, but I can quickly share and relicense available images to new customers. As a bonus, it also serves as an offsite backup in case something every goes terribly wrong at my office (knock on wood).

Anyway, when Lauren Margolis of PhotoShelter asked me to do in an interview about my architectural and interior photography, I jumped at the opportunity. I was totally flattered and I think the interview came out really great. Click the link below to read it on PhotoShelter’s blog:

Featured Photographer on Photoshelter

If you’ve worked with me anytime over the last few years, you’ve probably interfaced with my Photoshelter Archive. It’s the best service out there for online delivery and storage of photography assests. All my proofs galleries and high rez files get uploaded to Photoshelter. This gives my clients 24/7 access to their photos without having to get in touch with me. Plus it’s great way to see what I have available for stock. It also integrates perfectly with my website and it’s super easy to sync with my Lightroom catalog.
