Food Styling and Corona
What are the Possibilities?
The recent developments and changes in the world due to the Corona virus have affected all of us; physically, economically and emotionally. Thankfully, my family and I are healthy, and we are doing everything we can to prevent the spread of the virus in our personal and professional lives.
Like many others in the industry, most of my projects have been postponed for the foreseeable future. The sudden cancellations, delays and uncertainty have been challenging and have forced me to consider the immediate future and how I can continue to work in a way that is safe and effective for my clients, colleagues and myself.
After careful consideration, I have decided to offer my clients the following food styling options:
All items are made in advance according to your specifications. Whether you need a cake, cookies, a piece of lasagna, grilled meat, fake ice-cream, soup or anything else, this can be prepared and then delivered along with a set of instructions for presentation and handling.
Shop and Drop
Each and every product and ingredient required for your food styling project can be purchased, packaged and delivered to your office or home along with recipes, methodology and tips, if required.
Food Styling Helpline
I can help you fulfill your food styling needs at a safe distance via phone or videochat. I am available to answer questions, provide demonstrations or guide you through recipes.
Full-Service Food Styling
I am still able to offer the full-service Food styling to my clients, with a few adjustments:
- The studio team will be limited to as few people as possible. All members of the team will follow a strict protocol, including maintaining safe physical distance from each other, cleaning and disinfecting all work surfaces and materials and strictly following all guidelines issued by the RIVM.
- In order to limit physical contact between the studio team, most work and preparation will be done in advance of the film/photography session.
- The client will not be physically present at the session but is welcome to observe and give feedback via telephone, video chat or Skype.
While it’s clear that it will take some time before work in our industry returns to normal, I hope that some off the options offered above will suit your food styling needs in the current situation. In the meantime, I’m here to help you find solutions to your food styling challenges and I look forward to continuing our work together.
