Unless otherwise noted, I have registered and own the copyright to all of the photos on this site. If you were contacted by Image Rights regarding a claim, they are authorized to enforce my copyrights and you will need to work with them directly to sort the claim out.
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 (student projects, personal projects, personal blogs, etc.), I am okay with one photo being used when hyperlinked to the original post and credited, however if I don’t hear from you first, you may hear from my rights management company, in which case you will need to sort things out with them.
License Them (commercial)
Whether for-profit or non-profit you will need to purchase a license to use my photos for commercial purposes. This includes, but is not limited to publication in newspapers/magazines/TV/blogs/restaurant signage/menus/brochures/websites etc. I offer flexible global licenses starting from $600 per photo. 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.
If you need custom photos shot of a product or recipe, I’m available for hire. 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 for one rate.
