Restaurant Photography in New York City

Restaurant photography shoot in New York City.

Here is a couple photographs from a recent restaurant photography job. The shoot was for a french restaurant, Millisime, located in the heart of the Flatiron. Millisime is known for its seafood brasserie and exceptional oyster bar.

I have photographed oysters on numerous occasions. And I must admit, they seem to be oddly difficult for me. But walking into the restaurant and seeing their beautiful white granite tables, I was really feeling the environment. It was perfect for these oysters and made for great photographs! Now, I can’t get enough and try to photograph oysters any chance I get!

A small fun fact from this shoot. This was the last shot of the day at the restaurant and I made the chef pour it at a very very slow pace. I waited all day for it and it was worth it!
