How popular cook books use food photographers as their main ingredient.

With the Christmas book market beginning to gather pace, one of the most popular areas will be the cook book.

The ongoing rise of the celebrity chef and the inevitable book make these publications a top choice for a Christmas gift.

Phillip Shannon - Professional Commercial Food Photography
Each chef often accompanied by their own particular TV show will attract a certain section of the viewing public.

If you have ever bought or been given one of these cook books, you are as much buying into the celebrity persona and life view as much as the actual food they cook.

When turning the pages of these books you will note that all have taken advantage of using a professional food photographer.

Turning a recipe into mouth watering image is the job of the pro photographer and almost certainly a food stylist and art director/client too.

Professional food photographers will have many years experience in studio and location photography to call upon when dealing with food products for advertising and publication.

Throughout Leeds, one of the largest cities in the UK, professional commercial photographers and studios offer food shoots as part of their services.

Phillip Shannon, a commercial photographer based in Leeds has over 16 years professional studio and location photography project experience. This experience means that your food shoot will be handled with care and delivered to you on time and to a budget that suits your needs.

After many years in the photographic industry, Phillip Shannon has experienced many, many different kinds of photo shoot, product photography, pack shots, food, jewellery are all aspects of the portfolios displayed on the website.

If you are looking for a food photographer, whether you are based in Leeds or from further afield across the Yorkshire region or UK, Phillip Shannon can offer you an award winning, experienced, straight forward and down to earth approach for your next professional food photography shoot.
