Personal Chef Garbo took my food styling class a few years ago and hit the ground running! With a thriving business in San Francisco, she's taken what she learned and given herself an edge in this internet/food blog/visually centered culinary world we find ourselves in.
I can honestly say that listening to Denise Vivaldo’s talk on food styling at the 2007 USPCA Conference in Philadelphia changed my life. Soon after, I signed up for her Master Food Styling class with Gail Kenagy, former President of the USPCA. I was so inspired and energized that I returned home and immediately began a series of photo shoots of all the menus that I prepare for my clients. I applied many of the techniques I learned at Vivaldo’s class and soon the Return on Investment (ROI) kicked in when my phone started to ring more frequently. People really do “eat with their eyes” and it was my new and improved photos of carefully styled plates that attracted the business.
She recognizes the importance of an appealing website with enticing photos, and the time and care she puts into how she represents herself and her product comes shining through. Her photos have won her cheffing clients amongst an elite group of chefs, and she shares a few of her secrets here!
