This week I hit the road to photograph an up-and-coming and extremely talented food photographer Sophia Terra-Ziva.
Sophia asked me to come and take some profile pictures of her for her website / blog and also for some an impending press exposure she will be getting very soon. It was a delightful morning spent at Sophia’s house / studio. Her home is also her husbands steel fabrication workshop, which seems to work perfectly doubling as a studio for the style of food photography Sophia does. It has an definite edge to it – being real, honest and accentuating texture and earthy tones. She showed me all her prized props; a remarkable collection of mortar and pestles, colanders, bowls and serving platters, all with their own rustic charm – a photographers delight! Of course she cooks most of what she shoots, so she’s talented in the kitchen also
