YRSFood, Birmingham Food Photography,
Stylist & Specialist Photographer.
We have a specialist food photography side to the studio and a specialist food photographer running food photography shoots throughout Birmingham and the whole of the UK. This is in additional to our traditional commercial photography studio.
Food photography? To YRSFood, that means menu, product, packaging and editorial images - the full spectrum including a new and rising side to our business - food blogging and recipe clients.
We have worked with many types of food business and restaurant throughout the UK - you can find examples in our case study library - your-reflection.co.uk/yrs. But this area of work doesn't just include menu and restaurant work. We also work with agriculture and food production clients. Their requirements stretch beyond the 'dish' often to field work (literally!!) and also consumable products.
Our images extend the whole spectrum, so the studio work includes pack-shot as well as images for use in advertising, recipe book/card publication, menu use and yes, food blogging for chefs who are great in the kitchen but not too happy with a camera.
Why is food photography different?
Being a food photography studio means we simply think food - yes, acknowledged food junkies whether it be field or fork, menu or food product, blogging or food packaging. Whilst trying to manage our waist lines, we also get enthusiastic about plates, cutlery, table cloths... need we say more. We think food images.
As a studio we have invested in a wide range of props, cloths and ceramics, back drops and fabrics to bring any food work we do to a style you require. We style much of the work ourselves but are happy to recommend a stylist we have worked with in the past or engage any new stylist you have already employed.
As for restaurant work, we enjoy working from the hip with chef - yes, working on a selection from the day's menu, finding a great location in the establishment to shoot and then - often providing the entertainment for diners as we shoot while they eat!
When working with food and beverage clients we offer two options - working in our studio or on-site With on-site, we bring the studio to you, creating a commercial photography environment on your premises that gives you a little more freedom to create dishes or explore products and ingredients. In some cases we will take product back to our custom built product studios - but this depends on the product. We will produce a series of food and drink photographs that explore the subject or the premises (if a restaurant) and present these to you on an online proofing portal.
All the food and drink images taken are yours, no matter how many are taken - we do not charge by the image. The price quoted is always fixed price with no additional expenses charged or for restaurants a minimum of three hours on site and then charged beyond this on a discounted hourly basis whilst on your premises.
