Product and Food Photography for Packaging

With being a dedicated commercial food and motion studio not only do we shoot food for hospitality groups and ad agencies, we work with many corporate clients direct for their private label packaging needs. The Megaware Pro packaging shoot included a multi-day production in studio to capture 15+ shots of styled food and food prep items as well as individual product shots. All images were used for front, side and back packaging placement. A big thank you to the client and food stylists for a project well done.

The Westin Food and Beverage Shoot

We love all things food and craft cocktails so this was indeed a special shoot for us when working with The Westin. The cocktails and dinner items all incorporated locally sourced AZ organic ingredients. What better way to celebrate food and drink then with beautiful photography and supporting our local Arizona businesses. Thanks to the entire Westin team for your hospitality, Cheers.

…We have had the privilege of working with Patrick Darby/Tonic photography on multiple branding projects over the last 2 years. Restaurant’s Unlimited is a growing company with 48 restaurants nationally with more than 20 distinct brands. One of the unique challenges of our organization is our great variety of concepts, restaurant design and menu content. Patrick and his team have been instrumental in defining, highlighting and communicating the distinct nature of some of the most important brands in our organization. They’ve done this by leveraging several of their key strengths:

Talent & Creativity: Tonic is able to deliver the highest quality photography representing unique brand voices while adding their signature look and feel. Patrick & his team are able to troubleshoot and problem solve in real time while always maintaining their high quality standards.

Commitment & Work ethic: RUI has worked with multiple photography teams. The focus, consistency and work ethic of Patrick and his team is unmatched.

Efficiency: Patrick’s team is small but mighty. Each of the individual team members are able to wear multiple hats and support projects with everything from planning & organizing, load in/load out, set up, lighting, food styling, assistant photography and everything in between.

Flexibility: The Tonic team is able to make adjustments on the fly to suit changing conditions: Late breaking marketing promotions, physical constraints, shot list adjustments and all the other things that can come up during an all-day photo shoot. 

Staff, Management and ongoing support: The team are committed to ensuring the best outcome for everyone by leveraging open & honest communication and feedback. Tonic team have not only supported our organization’s intent but have helped us further define, refine and capitalize on our brand identities”

Pieology, the art and science of great custom Pizza – fast.

We recently had the pleasure of working with an awesome fast casual brand based out of Rancho Santa Margarita called Pieology. The unique brand is exploding and cropping up all over the country and after spending a day shooting in one of the newer 2.0 design locations, I understand why.

Pieology’s got it down. They’ve got an efficient streamlined production process, awesome welcoming service and a fantastic product that’s entirely customizable to the guests’ taste.

Marketing reached out to PDP recently and brought us up to Central California to produce a cross section of work that ranged from architectural to an editorial account of the process, energy, and experience of the brand. What we witnessed was an awesome energy fueled by the great customizable product. One guest, one pizza unique to that person and unlike any other.

We’re excited to be a part of the energy of Pieology and are looking forward to many more great projects in the future.

Thanks for partnering with us Pieology!

Patrick Darby Photography shoots food and architecture with the Original ChopShop Co.

Early 2014 we partnered with the Original ChopShop Co. for a fantastic food shoot which entailed capturing an array of their fresh menu items from salads, sandwiches and drinks. This February we were called back to help tell more of their brand story with a large architecture project for this growing brand. We just love these client projects, no pun intended… we enjoy sinking our teeth into the ChopShop brand. It’s that opportunity to shoot and share the entire brand experience from food, architecture, busy customer environments and merchandise.  This 3 day architecture shoot consisted of early morning to dusk productions. All three locations had their own uniqueness and vibe to them while still maintaining consistent service and great quality to their busy locations. We’re looking forward to shooting more locations as the Original ChopShop Co. continues to grow. Big thanks to the ChopShop and their management, see you soon!
