Julie Renouf Europe - Australia

"There are many defining moments in my career as a photographer and director. The most prominent: an inspired Christmas gift, a Hanimex Box Brownie at the age of seven; a gifted art teacher in high school who taught me to experiment and explore beyond what the textbooks taught, and that ‘mistakes’ can take you to somewhere way beyond imagining; a tertiary education in photography that taught me the rules and then insisted I break them; countless shoots where I learned to trust my intuition whilst being supported by my training. These countless projects now are the backbone of my creative and professional experience.

Recent years have seen my love of photography flow into my love of the moving image, with the focus being to always weave a visual story. My capacity to shoot both stills and motion streamlines production and maintains style consistency across various media.

On set I work closely with clients: collaboration, a positive attitude, and a shared enthusiasm for evocative visuals are the most effective way to create beautiful, authentic stories worth sharing with the world."

Rob Grimm Chicago - St. Louis

"I am a commercial beverage and food photographer based in the Midwest. It’s fair to say that I am steeped in boozy things, as being a drinks photographer is my true hallmark. But I am also a huge foodie and simply love to photograph all things food related. Truly, I love what I do and I am fortunate to be recognised for doing what I love. That is my way of injecting that necessary line that I am an “award-winning” commercial photographer.

I have been completely focused on my lane of beverage and food photography and motion content creation. I often lecture on these topics and teach workshops to share my knowledge, because I love this business.

Lately I have been pushing into the world of AI. For many this is a scary and divisive place. For me it is an incredible new tool which allows me to create images that are tailored to a brand. I can manipulate AI to assist in telling stories and grabbing views attention in ways that I could not do before. The collection of images you see here have all been created using my tested traditional methods of crafting light with AI generated backgrounds. All of these images are captured “in camera,” inclusive of the AI backgrounds. Now that statement should make you wonder what I am doing enough to reach out to the studio or my rep.

I hope you enjoy what you see. Please view more of my work at my website. And by all means, reach out and let’s talk about your next project."

Stephen Hamilton Chicago

Just imagine. It’s a shoot day in director and photographer Stephen Hamilton’s 11,000 sq ft studio. While the team is focused on the visual production, an amazing aroma is swirling in the air. Today’s shoot is for bacon. There aren’t many people who can resist the shiny, salty, hammy strip with its umami flavor.

For many, this aroma triggers delicious food memories. This only helps Stephen in his philosophy of capturing real life moments on a plate for chef Justin Brunson of Brunson Meat Co. in Colorado.

Stephen gets close to an ultimate BLT sandwich – tempting you to take a bite. Classic bacon and eggs are made personal with green tomatoes; bacon is paired with peaches and basil for a salad of surprising flavors and grilled shrimp are tucked in a blanket of glistening bacon. This wouldn’t happen without careful planning, lighting and a very talented crew that makes the magic happen.

People can imagine just how a dish will taste. And smell.

Steve Buchanan Baltimore - Atlanta - New York
