Photography

Portfolio

Unless otherwise noted, I took all the photos on this site. I’ve used a Sony DSLR since starting this blog in 2007. Older photos were taken with a Sony A100, more recent photos taken with an Sony A550, and photos since the end of 2011 have been taken with a Sony A77 mated to a Carl Zeiss 24-70 f2.8 lens.

Use Them (non-commercial)

If you’d like to use any of the photos on this site, please contact me with the specifics on how you’d like to use them. In most non-commercial uses, I’m okay with my photos being used when properly linked and credited, however if I don’t hear from you first, you will find yourself on the receiving end of a DMCA notice.

License Them (commercial)

If you want to use my photos for commercial purposes (this includes publication in newspapers/magazines, and use in company/restaurant brochures or websites) I offer several flexible licensing arrangements that are a lot cheaper than using generic stock photography. Before you decide you can’t afford it, drop me a note along with a list of the photos you want to use, and how you plan to use them and I’ll get back to you with pricing.

Hire Me

If you need custom photos shot of a product or recipe, I’m available for hire. If the photos on this site weren’t enough to convince you, perhaps this will: my rates are usually lower than using rights managed stock photography, and will almost certainly be less expensive than hiring an agency.

Here’s why: most food photography shoots involve a chef (and their assistant), a stylist (and their assistant), a photographer (and their assistant)… well you get the idea! Each of these people charge their own rate, and if you go through an agency, they’re going to mark up those rates so they can take their cut. As a chef, food stylist and photographer, I can handle all three jobs and you pay me one rate. Only for very large, time sensitive shoots do I charge for an assistant.

Contact me if you have any questions or would like to know more.

Welcome!

I'm Marc, and I want to teach you some basic techniques and give you the confidence and inspiration so that you can cook without recipes too!
