{Food Stylist}” heading_lh=”1″ sub_heading=”Food Styling, recipe testing & development, writer & stylist.”]
As a Feast collaborator:

Sarah is calm, focused, experienced, tenacious and has not only an amazing eye for detail but the ability to juggle and adapt as the situation changes. She is a fantastic listener, a true team player and helps clients explore their ideas to get the most out of their projects. Her range of carefully and thoughtfully sourced props and her beautifully created and bespoke surfaces are constantly updated and make the brief a complete joy to dive into.

About Sarah:

Based in the Northern Rivers, Sarah left Sydney 16 years ago for the bright lights of Byron Bay. A background in Fine Arts (COFA UNSW) and many years working in publishing honed her creative talents and practical skills, developing her innate ability to thoroughly explore concepts, cultivate a narrative, and create richly layered imagery. Underpinning her experience, Sarah has always been driven by her passions for delicious food and the art of visual story telling; she intuitively understands the whimsy and magic of YUM factor and adeptly uses it to connect audiences to images.

With over 20 years’ experience as a freelance Food Creative (stylist, feature writer and recipe developer) she has nurtured a diverse range of clients in Melbourne, Sydney, Byron and Brisbane, from publishing (online and print), to corporations large and small—helping them to grow their concepts and bring a little something extra to each of their projects. She has collaborated on over 30 cookbooks, and her work (both written and images) has been featured in magazines and advertising campaigns globally.

[yprm_heading css_animation=”slideInRight” decor_type=”bottom-line” heading=”Pete May
{Food Stylist}” heading_lh=”1″ sub_heading=”Food Styling, recipe writing, 4th dimension wizard and joy to have on set”]
As a Feast collaborator:

Pete is positive, adaptable, motivated, and enthusiastic. His palpable passion for his vocation shines through every situation even when pushed beyond the brief. It makes him a joy to have on set. His diversity of props and love of perfecting the details, opens up room for truly working together as a team, to create unique and amazing images for our clients.  

About Pete:

He began professional food styling in 2001 while Marketing Director for Australia’s largest national food retailing franchisor.

18 years later and he has created an incredible body of work and clients that span all facets of FMCG, Retailing Chains and Manufacturers, Wholesalers, Bakers, and Specialist Food Makers.

Most food stylists specialise in a particular vein…and for Pete this is very much the creation of “Crave”. Pete magically combines the allure and mood of an editorial image with the “must-haves commerciality” so desired by big brands. 

Pete has won the healthy following of top-shelf brands that count on him for the latest ideas and creative ways with food for the camera….stills and motion.

He is responsible for the look and feel of products from pizza and ice cream to dairy, pastries and sandwiches, burgers, steaks, and fresh meat. Cocktails, tabletop, olives, spreads, nut growers, and many more.

The 4th dimension!

Clients sometimes need a stylist to expand on the often “two-dimensional” aspects of still photos. 

Pete’s knack for exposing the textural detail and esoteric elementals in a shot helps to “sell” the product on multiple levels! Essentially making a product more crave-able through texture that suggests smell and even taste!

Think oozing cheese, crispy grilled crust on hamburger patties, juicy plumped oysters bursting from their shells… steaming cookies with melting soft marshmallow inside…
