I'm Skyler! With over 15 years of traveling North America, Asia and the Middle East, I'm just a camera toting, old school explorer who loves real adventures as much as I love real food.
We have been working together in the food & travel market as photographers for over 10 years now and we both really love photography and food!
About We Eat Together
I wanted to start the blog, We Eat Together, because as a college educator in studio lighting and table-top photography I felt there was a serious lack of quality information on the web for the budding food photographer. There are a lot of “5 tips to better bla bla bla,” one time posts, but not a lot of dedicated sites.
For the business side of things you can find behind the scenes, industry news, marketing, talks on equipment, and a few reviews.
To fill your creative cup, we’ll give you styling tips, some prop talk, discuss composition and lighting. Hopefully enough to keep the left side of your brain happy.
Or if you just want to skip past all the photography stuff, we’ll post a lot of recipes and restaurant adventures for those home chefs too.
I really hope, We Eat Together, will be an inspirational place for the food photographer, food blogger and all the foodies out there.
