EHHPS is delighted to welcome Jean Cazals to share some of his insights into the world of commercial food photography. If you have picked up a Sunday supplement, flicked through a magazine, or browsed the odd cookery book, it is pretty certain that some of the most stylish and mouth-watering images will have come from his camera.
Jean Cazals is a London-based food photographer whose approach is clean, graphic and moody, based on natural light, elegant styling and food presentation. His field of photography covers books but as well as packaging, design, editorial, restaurants websites and advertising. As an author and photographer, Jean was awarded the ‘Gourmand Best Dessert CookBook UK 2013′ award for his book ‘TeaTime’ and he was also awarded ‘Best Food Photographer in 2012′.
He gained his BA Hons. in Visual Communication at the LCP and, after a successful decade of portraiture for editorial, advertising and design clients, he spent 2 years shooting commercials. Loving food and travel for many years brought him naturally to turn his lens to food and lifestyle, which he thoroughly enjoys! Jean has shot over 80 books himself and also advises on book publishing for new projects. He works from his Notting Hill studio, when he isn’t travelling overseas for his international clients.
