In this video I show you around my commercial food photography studio. This is very much a place to create and steps away somewhat from the pristine white, minimalist set up to complete and utter (organized) chaos.
Having a space to call your own and to work from is really important as a photographer, and more important is having somewhere to throw all of those massive and heavy bits of gear. For years I looked through Pinterest at these huge empty white spaces with beautiful set ups. I often rent them too for big jobs. However, for my dat to day creativity, those spaces really just didn't work for me. Instead I opted for a more functional look where everything was out and ready to go, all of the gear was visible and the space was begging to have mess made in it. I am often cutting wood, throwing paint around, and certainly getting food everywhere.
Although this sort of space wont be for every photographer, I think it is important to have something that reflects your work, your way of working, and you personality. In this studio tour I show you around my office, prop storage, kitchen, shooting area, and workbench. All of which were custom built by myself to facilitate my work.
