What better way to kick off the new year than indulging a little more? Just before Christmas last year, I got together with the team at Mi Casa to work on their new food banner. As part of their menu refresh and the changes made by chef Manuel, Mi Casa were producing some new promo materials for a giant food banner and their facebook. We met up for an afternoon of food styling, photography, laughter, and of course the best part about being a food photographer – eating. This food really is as good as it looks. A mixture of traditional recipes, family recipes and a chef Manuel’s own touches, this is hands down the best Spanish food in Seoul. Be sure to check it out if you’re in town, great food and amazing people.
When Craftworks first opened at the foot of Namsan, Groove magazine sent me down there to get a few food and interior shots for the magazine. Since that time, I’ve been back to work on menu photos and interiors for Dan on a number of occasions. The great food and drinks usually mean that I go back for more than just the shoots, but it’s always fun working with Dan and his team. So, when Joshua Hall from Wine Korea mentioned that he was co-opening a new location nearby Gangnam Station, we worked out a couple of short sessions to get promo photography done for the new spot as well. If you’re a fan of Craftworks, head over for a couple of different dishes, and a more industrial feeling interior. It’s getting a bit cooler now, but the patio is going to be a great summer spot as well!
