People are focused on food now more than ever. What we eat, where it comes from and how it’s prepared are all important parts of the story. Good food photography should tell that story.
Hey there, my name is Regan and I’m an independent, professional food photographer and blogger currently living in Chicago with my husband, Mike and our chubby tabby cat, Ollie.
Formerly an art director in advertising, I left my career to pursue photography full time. In my experience, the photography industry has become over-saturated with unnecessary bells and whistles and too many cooks in the kitchen, resulting in high overhead costs and watered down images that are blending in rather than standing out.
As a small business owner, I decided to forge my own path and simplify the process of producing high-end food photography by taking a non-commercial approach. I work on my own or with my small team and I lead the styling, props and photography for each project. My level of expertise offers a more intimate photo shoot experience, prioritizes time for your project and results in a collection of images that stand out and tell your story.
I’ve partnered with a variety of lovely clients including brands like Anthropologie, Vitamix and Wimco Villas and have been able to partner with restaurants locally and throughout the U.S. I’m blushing from their words – read more.
You can also check out my Photography Blog to see what I’m up to. I share recipes, restaurants and travel stories and weekly rants about photography and business. Sign up for my emails. If you’re interested in partnerships through my Photography Blog, my media kit is available upon request.
If you’re interested in gourmet photography without the red tape of a commercial shoot, we should talk.
