In Food, We Give Thanks!

In Food, We Give Thanks! We took the opportunity to celebrate American food traditions with creating these Thanksgiving foodscapes. Framed as pieces of art, we enjoyed the creative process and always welcome any chance to play with our food. More of these concepts are on the way with a special purpose.

Fact:: According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the largest pumpkin pie ever baked weighed 2,020 pounds and measured just over 12 feet long.

Fact:: Only about 5% of cranberries are sold fresh while the rest are turned into cranberry juice, sauce, etc.

Fact:: Three towns in the U.S. take their name from the traditional Thanksgiving bird, including Turkey, Texas (pop. 465); Turkey Creek, Louisiana (pop. 363); and Turkey, North Carolina (pop. 270).

Cheers to a wonderful New Year!

We’ve had a great and BUSY 2017 with much to be thankful for. While preparing for the holidays we made a little time this December to have some extra fun with our food. Enjoy these festive concepts and thank you for being a Patrick Darby Photography supporter – we hope your holidays are filled with laughter, warmth and family. Cheers to a wonderful New Year!


Photography for Private Label Packaging

In addition to working with hospitality concepts we shoot a significant amount of food for packaging and specifically private label photography for grocery retail. This is a recent project captured in conjunction with Marketing By Design.


New Concept Shoot: PF Chang’s London

PF Changs has arrived in London! We recently worked with our long time friends at PF Chang’s Global to create a new photography aesthetic for the launch. The first location in Europe, the London location photography needed to represent co-founder Philip Chiang’s love of art, music and food. Shot in studio, the images provide both a look into the menu and its creation with a very hands on story telling approach. The results are beautiful with thoughtful attention to detail. Thank you to the PFC team, all the best in London!

A very cool fact – the location’s past includes a jazz club where the Beatles famously gave The Rolling Stones one of their hit singles, I Wanna Be Your Man.

Packaging for Pacific Seafood Co.

A large part of Patrick Darby Photography not only entails food, lifestyle and architecture work for the hospitality industry but packaging also makes up a large part of the studio business. We recently connected with the Pacific Seafood Co. team out of Oregon. Pacific Seafood is one of the largest seafood companies in North America. The company launched in 1941 as a small, fresh seafood retail operation and continues to be family-owned with over 2500 employees. These recent packaging shots were captured for their Premium line. Thank you to the Pacific team for a great shoot!

Looking forward to another great year working with this terrific team.

Mellow Mushroom Cinemagraphs, Food and Lifestyle Photography

We recently completed a multi-day shoot with Mellow Mushroom – this was our first project with the Atlanta based team that flew out to Phoenix to shoot: 1 day on location shooting lifestyle photography followed by 2 days in studio shooting food stills and cinemagraphs.  It’s always great to be working with new clients that reach out to us from across the country! Stay tuned for more tearsheets, we’re just starting to see the project files going live.  Looking forward to the next round of shooting – thank you to the Mellow Mushroom team, cheers!
