FOOD PHOTOGRAPHY AND STYLING SERVICES

Warm, comforting food images that give the viewer a hug and invite them to pull up a chair.

Polaris Creative tells your food stories through boutique editorial and lifestyle food photography services. We can shoot on location or remotely in our studio on Vancouver Island, B.C. Food bloggers, restaurants and bars, food producers, and cookbook authors are our speciality.

EVERY DISH HAS A STORY

Food doesn’t happen in a vacuum. There is a story behind the dish. We capture that story in our food photography and pull the viewer in to make them hungry.

CULTURALLY APPROPRIATE PHOTOS

Every culture has a right way to serve food, such as a lack of cutlery on tables in India. We photograph food in a way that is culturally appropriate.

FOOD PHOTOGRAPHY

We don’t simply create images of your food. We will work with your cook, stylist and the rest of your team to make your food photos speak.

FOOD STYLING

If you don’t have a food stylist, we can provide this additional service. We know food, how it behaves, and how it needs to be plated to look delish.

FOOD PHOTOGRAPHY PROPPING

As an additional service, we can provide the backdrops, cutlery, dishes, linens, surfaces, and more. We will make sure everything compliments the food.

ON LOCATION, REMOTE & IN STUDIO

You don’t need to live on Vancouver Island for us to shoot for you. We can shoot remotely. We can also shoot with you in our studio, or at your location as an additional service.

SHOPPING & COOKING

Ingredient selection is important for the best photos. We can shop the best as an add-on. We also can also cook as an additional service which is perfect for remote shoots.

COLLATERAL

If you sell food — restaurants, bars, farmers markets — we can also create and print your branded print collateral to make sure you have one cohesive look. We also sell canvass prints.
