Michael Persico

New York - Philadelphia

"I am a stills capture and motion director working in NYC + PHL, I've photographed a few cookbooks (one of which received the James Beard Cookbook Of The Year award: 'Zahav' by Michael Solomonov and Steven Cook).

Beyond just food and beverage, I consider myself a lifestyle photographer and director. I'm just as interested in the people, places and techniques that make the experiences special.

I had the opportunity to shoot with Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson this year to help launch his Tequila brand, Teremana. I've also worked with Free People to launch their newest beauty brand, SUMMARY and worked with Powers on their new bottle design re-launch."
