Bull & Barrel Seoul – Korea Food Photographer

Bull & Barrel, a western-style pub in Itaewon that recently made 10 Magazine’s list of the top 7 places to celebrate St Patrick’s day in Seoul, recently had me out to work with them on their new menu and promotional photography. Being a food photographer has its perks. Not the least of which is being able to taste the food at Bull & Barrel after the shoot!

Working with Chad and Steve was a blast. We started early to get as much done as possible before the bar opened for business. Quesadillas, humus, kimchi fries, curry, burgers, and pizza. We shot a good selection of the foods on the menu, and sat down to taste them afterwards.

Impressed does not begin to explain my reaction to the food. At a pub, you generally expect a scratched together menu of grease and salt to make you buy more beer. This is far from the case at Bull & Barrel. They have worked hard to make all the food the best it can be. The humus is home made and plentiful. The kimchi fries are a good mix of spice and cheese, while the curries are restaurant quality.

You’re going in here for dinner, not for a snack and beers. The food is great, and the drinks are up there as well. A couple of Craftworks beers, and a selection of imports crowd around the lonely Max tap that pours its cheap pints to hangover hungry folks. Do yourself a favour and enjoy a pint of something nice to go with the food!

I feel like I’m writing a review here, which is far from what this blog does, but I do recommend getting in and trying the food at B&B if you haven’t yet!

Enjoy the photos!

Mi Casa – Seoul Photographer

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.

Craftworks Gangnam – Seoul Photographer

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!
