Capturing Culinary Creativity: A Food Photography Journey at Pokeatery

Returning to Pokeatery in San Mateo for my second food photography session was a delightful experience filled with new discoveries and familiar favorites. It's always a pleasure to collaborate with this family-owned restaurant, and I was thrilled to see the exciting changes they had made since my last visit.

One of the highlights of this visit was the introduction of their new toast, adding a delicious twist to their already impressive menu. It's inspiring to witness the dedication and creativity of the team at Pokeatery as they continually innovate and refine their offerings.

As a food photographer, I am drawn to dishes that are bursting with color and vibrancy, and Pokeatery's poke bowls and sushi rolls are the perfect canvas for my creative vision. I relish the opportunity to play with different color combinations and plate designs, capturing each dish in a way that highlights its unique flavors and textures.

For this photoshoot, I relied on my trusted Canon 6D camera paired with a versatile 24-105mm f/4 lens. The flexibility of a zoom lens allows me to move around freely and zoom in on specific details, while a macro lens adds an extra layer of depth and detail to the images.

As I continue to expand my photography business, I am eager to travel to new destinations and collaborate with restaurant owners and chefs from around the world. Whether you're looking to showcase your signature dishes or capture the essence of your culinary creations, I would be honored to work with you to bring your vision to life.

If you're interested in having your dishes photographed, please don't hesitate to reach out. I would love to discuss your project and arrange a time to collaborate.

Below are a few sample shots from my recent photoshoot at Pokeatery in San Mateo:
