When hiring a food photographer to update your printed and video menus, it's a good time to also get portraits of Chef and your staff because why not? and because you can use these portraits on your website and to feed the social media beast like Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook and Twitter.
I took this portrait of Chef Yuri, owner of Partage and Eatt Gourmet Bistro, as we walked around Chinatown making lifestyle portraits, after we had made some Las Vegas food photography and after we had captured Chef Yuri and his crew creating meals in their kitchen.
I had just spent some time with Chef Yuri at the request of the Beat Bobby Flay show, who hire me whenever they have a Chef contestant from Las Vegas. The producers did not release the photos to Chef Yuri and so he brought me back to create similar food photography and lifestyle portraits for his social media feed.Filename: Chef-Yuri-Steven-Joseph-Photography--3E2A2099-2.jpg. 1/200; f/9.0; ISO 1250; 105.0 mm.
