Gallery Food Photography is an award-winning partnership based here on Rhodes. Chris & Karen strive to create original, modern and vibrant imagery for point-of-sale displays, exhibitions & interior decor. In 2012 we won the iTQi Superior Photo Award for our macro image of a rainbow-tailed prawn called Kitty. In 2016 we were shortlisted and commended in the prestigious Pink Lady Food Photographer Of The Year awards with a photograph of a prawn playing a harp.
We believe that a picture is for life and not just for a menu. We like to work closely with clients to produce the most striking and complimentary images as possible. Food photography can be intricate and time-consuming. We’re aware that one man’s sushi is another man’s fishcake and that the skill of presentation is the key to great food photography. Similarly there is no such thing as an ugly ingredient. It is simply a matter of perspective and lighting. The majority of our images are photographed on location using natural daylight. We are also, however, able to photograph in-house using a combination of natural and artificial lighting techniques.
All our images are delivered as highest quality, print-ready files and can be enlarged for any purpose. We can also print any image in-house up to a maximum size of A3.
The true stars of food photography are usually those furthest from the camera.
The true stars are those people who grow, nurture, harvest, sell, distribute, buy, wash, prep and cook the food which ultimately arrives on our plates. Professional food photographers would be nowhere without the talented chefs and kitchen assistants who can turn potatoes into gold. In recognition of these often unsung heroes we have dedicated our Food Alive page to all those people behind the scenes who work day and night to produce the food which keeps us alive.
Karen’s popular food blogs are now gathered together on the Villa Lindos Kalioppi website. Karen has been contributing to Pete and Phil’s luxury villa website here on Rhodes for almost two years now with recipes, cooking tips and island observations.
