More about Jason C....

What do you love about your job?

I love the technicalities that go into image making - the series of complex creative choices a photographer has to make in order to capture that one image. A powerful image is usually one that seems effortless to make but which in fact, took a lot of planning, conceptualizing, and technical skill to follow through. In terms of food photography specially, I love food and I love playing with food. I enjoy finding the best angle and lighting to make a particular dish shine and what I strive for is to evoke the very primal and natural emotions of hunger, lust, and joy when someone looks at my creation.

What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?

I have done on-location food photography for restaurants in New York City. Unlike many other food photographers, I get very much involved in the food styling if possible. I tend to start my session by discussing with the chef and owner, finding out how I can make a particular shot look more enticing but yet stay true to the dish.

Awards, honors, and recognitions received
