Ilya Shapovalov is a commercial and editorial food photographer based in Düsseldorf, Germany. Growing up in the rural provinces near the Black Sea, Ilya enjoyed a farm-to-table experience which gave him a deep and life-long understanding of food.
By the time his passion for photography met this understanding, he had found his vocation as a food photographer. His fresh contemporary perspective brings life and food together in a harmonious way. Creating compositions with a sense of symmetry and fine balance, Ilya always finds a way to delight the viewer.
Combining natural and artificial light to create genuine moments, he works with clients to communicate the beauty, passion and craft that go into every project. His clients include Lidl, Metro, All Bar One, Simon & Schuster Verlag, Elle Girl, Sparkasse, Groupon, Orange and many more.
