Mama Said..Don't Play With Your Food, but I didn't listen.. Good Thing!
Food is a glorious thing, and beautiful images of food speak to our senses, leaving us hungry for more. However, creating these images may look easy, in fact it can be quite a challenge. Food can get messy, wilt & discolor without paying attention to every detail to proper food handling for the set. It basically behaves badly and needs TLC.
My name is Trace Hayes, creator of Visual Fare Food Styling. I know the inherent challenges with food and how to address them as 40 years 'food'experience has enabled my natural progression from Professional Chef to Food Stylist 24 years ago. Translating food ideas, compositions & presentation to film art takes creativity, a deep well of patience and sheer innovation, to capture of food at peak freshness.
The food and drink galleries on this website, showcase styling accomplishments and easily categorizes the images in their respective gallery. Iv tried to make looking for examples of certain foods for your specific projects easy, as with all service we offer.
