Product + Service Photography
Nothing says, "Buy Me!" more than a few photographs that perfectly capture your product or service more than a well-lit, studio photograph of your product or service

Food & Beverage


We use photography to create branded visual content that helps your business connect with people.

You know the old adage, "A pictures is worth a thousand words?" Its true (but don't tell our copywriters). People are spending more time in media than ever before.

Media can no longer be treated as a commodity. Media is the dominant connection between people and brands and the most powerful asset for businesses to understand their existing and potential customers as real people.

Small businesses are reinventing themselves around media to accelerate brand growth. The more you interact with your customers using original, branded photo and video, the greater that connection.

Photographing Food on Location

"I'm usually at restaurants during off-hours when the restaurant's closed or when there's not a lot of customers. I'll sometimes bring a simple lighting setup but I try to shoot natural light as much as I can. I work closely with the chef, discussing timing, plating. I have to work fast - restaurants don't have a lot of time, nor do they tend to have a large budget. So, I work quickly to capture the atmosphere of the restaurant as well as the essence of the food. I'm trying to capture the spirit of everything." - Rust Creative photographer, Roger Hoover

Cocktail Photography

Photographing cocktails seems simple. You pour or order a drink, then you take a picture. What more could there be? As it turns out, a lot. Cocktails are often served in low lit atmospheres, in reflective glassware, with a limited window to photograph before the ice melts, foam settles, and colors dissipate.


"Roger has been an invaluable partner to my businesses. He provides valuable perspective and stays current on market trends so we don’t have to keep as close an eye. And he has given our brands the distinct voice and image we were seeking." - Mike Beder, Franklin Hotel Bar & Venice Cafe
