Food Photographer & Stylist in Dubai
Hi There! My name is Teena, and I am a Professional Food Photographer and Stylist in Dubai. I was passionate about photography since my teenage. This passion later made photography as my profession. Besides Photography & Styling, I am also a recipe developer and have worked with various food brands in the industry. When I don’t have DSLR in my hand, you will find me in the kitchen exploring new dishes. I am a passionate baker and Wilton certified. I do run a food blog with the name – ‘Art of Palate.’
In the past few years, I have acquired knowledge about photography and the aspects of Food Styling. The expertise that I hold today is a result of countless hours of practice, devotion, and hard work. I frequently Photograph and style Menus for restaurants and for social media. I also work with food brands and media agencies as a stylist, where I am required to prepare or develop a recipe for a commercial shoot. I also team up with photographers who need a stylist.
Beautiful Food Photography doesn’t have to be expensive, and we aim to make it affordable. Food is fun and close to my heart, so I put my heart and soul while working on a project.
While large commercial shoot requires a team of Photographers, Stylist, and Creative directors, which can be expensive, it is not the case for Restaurant Photography. A Restaurant or food photography only requires a Professional Food Photographer who is well versed with Styling and Composition and has a thorough understanding of lighting and editing.
Please visit my portfolio to get an idea about my work. If you want to understand the pricing or discuss photography for your restaurant or brand, please call me on 971506993010, and I would love to walk you through.
