Profession: Food Photographer
Discovering the profession of food photographer at Studio B, Paris, going to and fro between two sets, two photographers, in a beehive atmosphere. To arouse desire, the team (photographer, food stylist and decorator, retoucher, graphics artist) have vast know-how at their disposal, as well as a box of tricks that allows them to recreate the "natural" look. The kitchen is but yards from the set; a fraction of a second separates shooting and post-production. A highly technical exercise, like a bee dance, that demands constant adaptation to product, format and client against a tight timetable.
