Photography: Bonita Taqueria Y Rotisserie
Every once in a while, I get a client with a really fun and exciting project. This project in question was for a new Taqueria and Rotisserie which was opening in San Francisco’s Marina District. The client was starting from scratch, so I had a blank slate to work with. I was hired on to consult with them on their branding as well create an online presence.
I got to work closely with the Interior Designer, choosing color palettes, style motifs and general design concepts and ideas. After creating a successful logo, menus signage and a website, we still were missing professional photography. I had already known how I wanted the food to be shot and styled, but we were running short on the opening and needed to launch the website in time for the opening. The number one way we were going to get the neighborhood excited about the food offerings was to show them.
So, with the vision in mind and the trust of my client, I decided to take the bull by the horns and coordinate my own photo shoot. I have done food styling previously, assisting in shoots where I art directed, so I was my own art director, stylist and photographer for this series. I was quite happy with the end results.
