- Type:Food Porn
Food porn often takes the form of food photography and styling that presents food somewhat provocatively. Enjoying my occupation as Executive Producer and General Manager of Video at Instagram, I get the rare opportunity to "eat what I shoot". With a great team of videographers and food stylists, we make some great food and capture it in video and print. These shots, captured on my smart phone are intended to excite the palates of the viewers and encourage them to save and cook the recipes. My goal is to create beautiful images that set taste buds to tingling, making people want to cook. This is not always an easy task. There is the food itself. It may be stunning: a roasted bird; a delicate cake. But it is not always so. I may see such distinctions, but I try to never allow them to get in the way of my pursuit of the shot that shows them beautifully. Because even a brown soup, photographed in the right light, at the correct angle, etc., with a napkin dropped just so can become beautiful. Its excellence can be revealed.
