Professional food photography by Kathryn Wagner for Ali Baba Restaurant

 (Kathryn Wagner)
I am happy to show you professional food photography and the full website redesign and rebranding of Ali Baba Restaurant. It was a pleasure collaborating with Karl of Three Plumes on showcasing the fast fresh and healthy aspects of this eatery’s authentic Mediterranean cuisine with vibrant colorful photographs of the food. The images are to appear on the site, in store, and as part of the businesses branding. Another example of the effectiveness of photography positively impacting another’s business – love it!

     It was wonderful working with Deputy Photo Editor Alex Arnold on the May 2012 issue of Travel+Leisure. The photograph above is included in an article detailing Chef Sean Brock’s favorite sources for local goods in the Charleston area. Photography published in Travel and Leisure was of  Gechee Boy Market and Mill, a lovely country store and historic mill on Edisto Island, thirty minutes outside of Charleston. Greg Johnsman produces authentic, locally sourced and milled corn grits; available from their store or website. Travel and Leisure dubbed this issue “The Food Issue” and featured recommendations from award wining chef’s favorite places to eat and source their ingredients. Photographing food (and it’s related sources) to appear in Travel + Leisure’s Food issue was great, as it helped bring light onto a great local grain producer in the South Carolina Lowcountry.

Professional Food Photography: Seafare of Williamsburg Virginia

 (Kathryn Wagner)

I am very excited to share with you a shot recently created for Seafare of Williamsburg, a classic fine dining experience focused on seafood, in Williamsburg Virginia. This shoot is great example of working with a wonderful client and a great team to show off the incredible experiences that my clients offer to their customers. These images are destined for Seafare’s website and a cutting edge visual menu that will be showcased on an iPad; as a visual feast for diners. I have been noticing a bit of a trend lately with utilizing tablets in restaurant settings, and I must say that strong visuals are definitely a key to success with this strategy. I throughly enjoyed working with everyone on this project and look forward to collaborating with more restaurants on iPad menus.
