Backyard Dinner

I was looking through some past tear sheets and came across a summer food feature we photographed for Diabetes Forecast magazine. If you follow our blog, you know we do quite a bit of food photography for this publication designed for American Diabetes Association members. This particular story was for their food issue, so we had a number of spreads to work with. Believe it or not, this backyard patio environment photo was created here in the studio. With a lot of planning days before, this set came together very quickly on the shoot day itself. To see more food photography visit our website at www.dreier.com. Food styling by Whitney Kemp.

American Indian Recipes

These American Indian (Native American) recipes were featured in the October issue of Diabetes Forecast magazine for the American Diabetes Association. The recipe development and testing for these recipes is provided by the client. Our role is to work with the art director and collaborate on creative direction for the feature. We then execute the food styling, propping and food photography here in our studio located in Nashville, Tennessee. (Food styling by Whitney Kemp)

National Donut Day

Since it’s Friday I’ll make this post short and sweet.

It’s National Donut Day which is a day worth celebrating here at Dreier & Company. Being a part of Kyle’s crew during a donut shoot is always especially delicious, because we end up eating as many as we photograph. So here’s to donuts, one of our favorite breakfast foods. – John

Chinet Drinkware

We did a series of images for Chinet for their “cut crystal” drinkware. While we bill ourselves as a “food photography” company we often do food related photography. In this case, product related to food. Here are a few from that particular shoot. You’ll also see these in stores on their retail packaging. A huge credit to everyone on set for this shoot…from agency, to crew, to client. It was certainly a team effort. – Kyle

Cracker Barrel Breakfast

How about some yummy breakfast from Cracker Barrel? You know, breakfast isn’t just for breakfast. Even though they have great lunch and dinner options, I still opt for pancakes and eggs anytime of day. We’ve been working with Cracker Barrel on and off for a couple of years now, and here are a few images from those shoots. Food styling by Whitney Kemp and Teresa Blackburn. – Kyle

J. Alexander’s

Over the past few years I’ve been fortunate to get to work directly with very talented people. Sometimes it’s our crew. Sometimes it’s our client. Sometimes it’s a chef. In this case, we worked with Chef Jim Filaroski from Nashville based restaurant group J. Alexander’s. I know I’ve said this before, but I’m gonna say it again, he is dedicated to quality food start to finish…even how it’s plated. I think I enjoy working with him because he’s kinda OCD like me. We OCDs need to stick together. – Kyle
