San Francisco: Paritha Wannawanit

"My name is Paritha Wannawanit, but my nickname is Pang. I am a food and drinks photographer living in San Francisco, one of the most food centric cities in the world. I was born and raised in Thailand. Every year I visit my beloved country and surrounding region. Thailand’s beautiful countryside and vibrant, colourful cities inspired me to become a photographer.

I love shooting fine foods as much as I enjoy eating them! Fine dining and street food both have an equal place in my heart (and tummy), though I must say that I lean toward street food when given a choice. I love to play with colour contrasts and am inclined toward a “messy” photographic style. I also run a food blog, 'circahappy'; it’s my corner of the internet where I cook, style, shoot with my own props, and just have fun being creative.

My work has been published in Saveur and Wine Enthusiast Magazine. My photos also won 3rd place and ‘highly commended’ from the 2016 Pink Lady Food Photographer of the Year awards - the world’s leading celebration of the art of food photography and film."
