SEEING GREEN ☞ Food Photography with FYT

I've been itching to dive into food & product styling again for far too long so I am exceptionally elated to be the stylist on board with Victoria Zegler & Christian O'Grady of FYT Productions. The cheerful photo/video duo is based in Pontiac & has diverse expertise & a discerning eye for visual storytelling. We've teamed up to produce a color spectrum still life collection in monochromes with fresh fruits, vegetables, herbs, & raw dry goods.

We've started with green, as it is so lush & plentiful in late Winter even in Michigan. As we progress through this series I am looking forward to traveling to my favorite specialty shops & open-air farmers markets to find unique local varieties in vibrant & varying reds, yellows, whites, & beyond.

Victoria photographed behind the scenes shots & stunning closeups, while Christian dabbled in capturing video & rigged the lighting to craft one polished still life image. I sourced & prepped the fresh components, as well as arranged them & it was oh so lovely to get my hands dirty again.

Here's a glimpse at some the process & soon you'll see the full set on my portfolio.
