FOOD STYLING by Ronwyn van der Riet
Thanks very much to the lovely ladies, Anthea and Louise from APPCITY who referred me to JJ from JAYZ GRILL as they were looking for somebody to shoot his food for web, menus and possible billboards.
As you may know by now, shooting food is a bit of a passion for me. Although on this particular occasion, we didn’t manage to sample much. Squirting glycerine on some of the dishes wouldn’t have helped either. And, being so busy trying to squeeze in a fair amount of dishes in a limited time frame, we had to hurry up, style and shoot, style and shoot. No noshing!! No matter how tasty it looked.
Anyhow, it was such a huge help to have my food stylist/assistant with me on the day. Thank Ronnie – your help was invaluable. We would never have got through as much as we did, if it wasn’t for her. That said, some of the time she was so picky and finickety with her styling I thought I’d never get to shoot.
All’s well that ended well. A happy Client + happy Designers = over the moon photographer and very chuffed food stylist.
