Summer Grilling Party Photoshoot

C L I E N T: FRESH By Brookshire's
P R O J E C T: Summer Grilling Party Styled Photoshoot

This summer photoshoot highlights grilling food items for entertaining and party planning. It encompasses the summer months when friends and families typically gather for outdoor cooking and celebrations.

My Role:

I completed this project by collaborating with a food stylist, photographer, art director and client representative. Throughout this months-long project, I led the planning, art direction and execution of a styled photoshoot.

Project Breakdown:

This project starts with a food list from the client, which designates specific food items that the client wants to showcase. I use that list and photo examples from my research to plan shots by deciding on angles, lighting, tone, and choosing which foods are appropriate for each shot. After client feedback, I designed and delivered the concept design, including color scheme and overall theme.

Once the client was happy with the direction, I planned and shopped for props: surfaces, backdrops, linens, fabrics, platters, glassware, serveware, etc. I then use my photo examples and the purchased props to begin building the scenes to get a better idea of each shot.

Multiple times throughout the process, I would lead a group phone call with the food stylist to discuss each shot and troubleshoot and answer any questions or concerns.

On the scheduled photoshoot days, I collaborated with the food stylist, photographer and art director to setup and execute each shot.

Final Takeaways:

This project challenged me to plan a visually appealing campaign and styled photoshoot to highlight popular summer grilling food items with the goal of increasing sales for the grocery client.

These type of projects are always collaborative, however this project required my leadership and ownership of the creative planning and the majority of the execution.
