Linkedin Headshots, Photos, Professional Photos, Workplace Photoshoots

LinkedIn is one of the most heavily trafficked website on the planet and it’s crucial that you control how others perceive and you before they meet you in person.

As a marketing and research tool, it often times the default method for recruiting, competitive intelligence, finding a professional, evaluating possible employers, prospecting clients and partnerships as well as a screening tool for online dating.

Users with profile photos receive up to 21 times profile views than those without photos.

Food & Beverage Photography; Bar, Drinks Photographer

Photoshoot Ideas, Examples, Backgrounds – Bars, Cafes, Dishes, Drinks, Food, Cocktails, Beverages & More

My style is different from a lot of photographers who focus on creating more unapproachable art rather than the essence of dishes.

My goal is to create a connection with audiences and make the food and beverages the center of attention, the photo itself. 

With so much deception, narcissistic tendencies and stiff environments, it can be hard to create an inviting place to visit.

These days, people are craving intentional drinks, not 8 ingredient abominations. They are seeking well-executed dishes, not performance art, gimmicks and other tactics popular among the tik-tok generation.
