“Do what you love,” is a statement our team is fond of saying.
Led by our Chief Food Photographer, Manila-based artist Adrian Agulto, we have grown believing that nothing great was ever accomplished without passion. It is because of this that we do what we do and why we keep going. Food photography is a business built on dreams; planned then pursued.
What started out as a fascination with chefs’ creations turned into an overwhelming urge to capture the craftsmanship of creative cooking. One masterpiece leading to another. From perfected plates to profitable photos.
To a food photographer, Manila is a hot spot of opportunities but a pool of competitions as well. With a lot of other talented contemporary photographers, I Shoot Food Manila stands out by not only taking photos of food but also shooting its stories, making it seamless for specific audiences.
Being professionals, ISFM arrives at your restaurant with a strategic concept in mind. Understanding your brand and what it wants to say, and aligning photo shoots on how to say it. This was made easier by acquiring a collection of props and a library of fabrics for styling which sets the mood for every shot.
Expert eyes for intricacy sees to it that every food is taken at all angles, defining delicate details to bring the best frames forward. And even after the set has been packed, the quest to further elaborate the beauty of each piece continues in post-processing. Photo manipulations are done with accordance to aesthetics and branding until it finally becomes the display that piques interests and lures one’s target market.
At the end of the day, the kind of food photographers Manila should look for are the ones that don’t only settle business and transactions but the ones who build professional relationships, because those are the ones who do their work by heart, with respect for your brand and perseverance to attain perfection while sharing your vision. With I Shoot Food Manila, your restaurant’s every food scene is a shot well shared.
