About

Judy, the award winning artist and photographer behind Expression Food, has decades of experience photographing food to make it appear evocative and inspirational. But more importantly, her process used to find and tell your best story is why you want to hire her. She will ask questions to discover your story, develop a choice of "looks" for your needs, then shoot innovative images to set you ahead of the pack. The shots are styled and organized before the food and people are assembled. Your photos will be nothing short of fantastic and they will tell your very best story in a cohesive, professional fashion with a great aesthetic and attention to detail.

Food photography is a unique art. Focus, light, color, white balance, and composition impact and engage the viewer's emotions. Images speak a thousand words; let us make you or your client's project look delicious!

With Expression Food you buy the clean style and amazing shots that are honed from over 4 decades of experience with food. This talent, passion, education and experience with food will present an exceptional expression of your story.

We are located in the San Francisco Bay Area in California.
