restaurant + bar photography.

Being based in the resort town of Queenstown and Wanaka where tourism and hospitality is a major industry, I have been able to work with restaurant, bar and cafe owners to capture images of their hard work and vision to best show off their space, food & drinks and customer service.  The ambience, lighting and mood of a dining or drinking space is a very important part of the customer experience.   I am always intrigued with the use of heavy industrial and rustic materials such as steel, copper, mesh and recycle railway sleepers softened with other textures, materials, fabrics and lighting to tie all together.
