  • Stephen Hamilton is a food and beverage director and photographer whose work has appeared almost everywhere you see images of food. From television, national magazines, cookbooks, packaging, international publications, food and photography blogs, to seven seasons of Top Chef (Bravo TV). His “real life” approach of capturing motion and images has garnered the attention of numerous agencies, international food companies and restaurants. Stephen has also appeared as a guest Quickfire judge on Top Chef Masters and is a sought after authority on food photography.

    Stephen Hamilton built his career on a passion for showcasing food in a natural and enticing style, always pushing the envelope in pursuit of honest, authentic imagery that heightens taste appeal across all categories. Drips, pours, crumbs, bites—fresh and real, perfectly imperfect. Less is more in terms of styling, more is more in terms of exploration. He loves the integrated, sensory approach to food as it allows him to expand the visual story and bring food to life. 

    In recent years, Stephen has grown his photography business into a full-service production company. Stephen Hamilton Productions combines his talents with those of an on-staff producer and editor as well as a roster of skilled photographers. Capacious studio space accomodates multiple simultaneous shoots, offering clients start-to-finish capabilities from pre-production to in-house retouching. Stephen Hamilton Productions offers full-circle capabilities encompassing still photography; animated stills; cinemagraphs; stop-motion builds; how-to videos; and tight, textured “delicious moments” videos. We’re also proud to deliver seamless remote shoots to better serve our North American and international clients.
