Gallery of Chef JPS clearly demonstrates that a picture is worth a thousand words! Creating food and then photographing my work gives almost as much pleasure as eating it!
My other passion is video and photography skills. Firstly, I prepare the food and plate up for presentation. All of the photographs on my website have been taken by myself.
It is a well-known adage among chefs that “You eat with your eyes first.” If food looks appetizing your stomach is wondering what is taking so long!
Research has proven your brain often associates eating as a reward, releasing the chemical dopamine with tasty, satisfying food.
Sources of dopamine include apples, avocados, chocolate, coffee, eggs, green leafy vegetables, nuts and seeds and yoghurt.

Food Photography Tips
Gallery of Chef JPS
Food warms so you’ll need to learn to work quickly If you take too long it can melt, crumble, the vegetables wilt or simply fall in on itself
Ensure your plate, table and area to be photographed is spotlessly clean
Initially place your camera level with the food. Photograph from the front. Then move up 25-degrees or try 75 degrees. Compare your images with each other. Which is your gut instinct telling you is the best? Run with it.
