You need professional photos of your food for your Instagram feed (you are doing Instagram, right?) You also need professional photos for your online menu, and for your printed menu. You also probably need lifestyle photos of chef and crew preparing food, and having fun, more stuff to keep the Instagram feed humming.
And I LOVE taking my 4 sons to interesting restaurants with delicious food.

|WHAT I GET
|An amazing meal and experience for my family. We love great food and great experiences!
I have done food photography shoots for hundreds of restaurants in the Las Vegas area, and for 3 different episodes of the reality TV show "Beat Bobby Flay".
I'll come to your restaurant with professional lighting, and we'll make enough gorgeous photos of your beautiful food to keep your social media feeds fresh for months.
I always shoot tethered to a laptop so you can see the photos instantly as we make them.
Payment is flexible and dependent upon the scope of the job.
But most chef owners I work with prefer a combination of some cash + vouchers that allow me to bring my family to eat at your restaurant.
Probably a couple hundred bucks cash, depending upon the size of the job, and then the opportunity to bring my family of 6 people to your restaurant to eat. If it's a very big job it may be more cash and multiple opportunities to eat at your restaurant. If it's a small quick job it could be less. Everything's negotiable. I respect that because of your training and excellence and craftsmanship and artistry there is great value in dining at your restaurant. And I expect a reciprocal appreciation for what goes into very good professional food photography.
You cannot sell the photos (like to a stock agency or to a magazine) but otherwise you effectively own the photos to post anywhere you want as often as you want. STEVEN JOSEPH PHOTOGRAPHY retains the right to use the photos for self-promotion (i.e., I will post them to my website and to my social media.) But otherwise they are yours.
Quickly. While you will see the photos on a big laptop screen as they are being made, they will be lightly edited and delivered to you electronically as quickly as possible. If I'm very busy it might be a week or two. If I'm not busy it could be the next day or so.
No, I come to your restaurant.
Yes. Nearly every photo in the gallery above was taken in a working restaurant during business hours.
All of those things are available at cost. Fancy surfaces can include black plexiglass, marble, weathered wood, slate tiles, etc. Fancy linens and cutlery and such can be purchased from your favorite source of these things. I am happy to talk about all of this and bring anything you want. I will simply pass the cost on to you. A food stylist can really bring a food photo shoot to the next level, but expect to pay at least $750-$2,000 per day for a professional food stylist.
You can put me way in the back with a medium sized dining table. I bring professional lighting on stands, I bring a laptop (so you can see the photos as we make them). I'll need access to a power outlet. That's about it.
