As a restaurant owner, photography is probably one of the greatest marketing tools you have available to you, especially in a web medium. People are highly visual and this effect is only magnified by the fact that you’re dealing with a product that’s so intensely associated with the senses; sight, smell, touch, and, most importantly, taste.
You simply cannot achieve the same professional look with a camera phone, and while stock photography can look great, it will look generic and it won't be unique to your restaurant. The only way to produce a professional photo style food menu is to use a professional food photography service. Professional photography will showcase your menu in the best possible way with a variety of methods that bring out the vibrancy and appeal of the food.
A great looking food menu can look as good on your website as it does in your restaurant, bar or café. All of our photographs can be used on your website as well as being printed for your menus. When more and more people check your website before deciding whether or not to eat in your establishment, a beautiful set of food menu photographs can really give you the edge over your competition.

"Before launching our online artisan cheese business in October 2017 we knew that the quality of the product images we used on our website would make or break the business. Our website is our shop window, and in the absence of a physical premises all potential customers have to go on is the look of the product on the screen.
We spent 3 days with Chris photographing all of our products for the website before we launched. It was a great experience and we were absolutely delighted with the results. Chris worked tirelessly to ensure that every product looked its absolute best. He went above and being what we expected, and was unfazed by the piles of cheese and hampers that rapidly spread across his studio!
After our busy first few months we decided to add more products to the site and had no hesitation in booking back in with Magenta. We had another very successful 2 day shoot, and if anything the results were even better than the first time around.
I have no hesitation in recommending Magenta. Chris and Luke are brilliant to work with and their work is excellent."
