Compass Group UK & Ireland have an extensive food program for which we supply imagery and specialist food services. We work closely with the chefs and their team to plan the day’s shoots to run seamlessly. We don’t get long to work with some dishes so we have to be quick and efficient. We work prior to the shoot on concepts, mood-boards background colors, prop sourcing and crockery in order to create the right feel.
Most of the food photography is shot on the Hasselblad usually with the 120mm lens often using the tilt and shift adapter for the HTS system. We shoot using a balance of both daylight and flash run from the Profoto D4 and the B2 power packs simultaneously using up to six heads. Often a complicated rig used and all shot tethered in to the MBP using Phocus software.
