"When it comes to photographing food, it's not just about preparing a quality recipe, but also about the story behind it."
I'm a photographer, recipe developer and content creator at www.hungryapron.com. As a food lover, I enjoy cooking, especially making desserts and baking. “The Hungry Apron” is my corner where creativity runs wild and where I get to experiment with ingredients and create delicious food that makes people happy.
Food is a very important part of our lives and I really do believe that we are what we eat. My recipes are all seasonal and in the summer, you can find me picking tomatoes, eggplants, strawberries and fresh herbs on our sunny terrace in Rome.
When it comes to photographing food, it's not just about preparing a quality recipe, but also about food styling and the story behind it. Each picture begins with an empty canvas that you gradually build until you reach the balance between reality and art. With my styling, recipes and photography I try to evoke emotions and tell a story – from a warm apple pie that fills up the house on a rainy Sunday morning that feels just like the one grandma made when you were little to a refreshing berry cheesecake that is just perfect for summer parties and gatherings with friends.
My Favourite Photo Boards
BARN - I love using this board as it gives natural and rustic look to all my photos. It goes well with all my recipes as dark wooden surface really makes the colours of the food pop.
SPOTLIGHT - This background might be my favourite as enables you to play around with shadows and light- perfect for dark and moody scenes.
VERSAILLES - This white marble effect background is perfect for bright days and vibrant colours! I use this background when making fresh colourful recipes just like the fruit tarts in the photo.
