Thirty-Nine Images Bring an Exciting New Direction to Commercial Still-Life Photography

by The Luupe

These imaginative photographers and stylists are helping commercial food and product photography thrive.

Nixing the safe, uniformly lit white studio backdrop, the following photographers take creative chances to bring new light, color, styling, and energy to the products they capture.
From Maggie Shannon lighting Dunkin Donuts with hard, contrasty strobes, to Lauren Segal's sand-dune-photographed picnic blanket, their artful visions expand how consumers can experience a brand.
Be sure to check out each photographer's portfolio and reach out to collaborate on your next project.

▲ © Janet Kwan. "I finally gathered enough motivation and momentum to experiment with new techniques. It took about a month or so to get there, but I’ve found that works well for me when I’m restricted or plateaued. I get to a point where I’ll try something - anything - to get out of the creative rut. Sometimes it works, sometimes it takes longer than expected, but every attempt is movement and that’s how I build momentum."

▲ "I think one of my favorite parts of my photo shoots is conceptualizing; picking color schemes, backgrounds, props, and compiling the mood board. I tend to be very hands-on and like to be involved in the process, especially when it means I get to take a trip to the DTLA fabric market! - Rebecca Grant
