To me, food is beautiful. It has a particular beauty because it connects us in a natural and organic way to the environment. We thrive through food. Our bodies grow because of its nutrients. We connect with each other by eating it together.
“An art which isn't based on feeling isn't an art at all... the feeling is the principle, the beginning, and the end; craft, objective, technique - all these are in the middle.”
— Paul Cézanne
However, food photography is not only about food! Product photography is not only about the product!
It is about creating a visual experience that will stimulate the viewer’s response and senses.
One source of my inspiration comes from still life paintings. Studying Cezanne’s still life masterpieces as well as other impressionist artists influenced my work. I take their inspiration and add a modern twist.
To design a photoshoot, I first visualize the final image in my mind. Then I arrange and style coordinate all the elements together to obtain the hero shot. I always start with the background, then add the textile, flowers, or any other props. The principal subject is always placed last, to make sure it will pop to the viewer. I use many different composition techniques, but my most used is the flat lay technique.
It’s a very effective way to create compelling images.
Through food photography and food styling, I strive to meld my artistic vision to the benefit of my client’s project.

JULIE GEYER STUDIO
Loved my photo session with Peggy. She is so easy to work with and has such a great eye. She knows what angles will really make your interiors shine in the photos and how to get great lifestyle photos as well. It's such a joy to collaborate with her and I can't wait to do it again.
