Rose Lemon Tea. I tried a new drink recipe of rose tea with lemon. For a super hot day, I added some ice cubes and made it an iced tea. I like the result; the flavours of green tea, tangy lemon, sweet rosey and citrusy scents are truly pleasing. Here the iced tea is showered with dried rose petals.

Thank you #foodelia team for this chance. It's an honor to be here.
Thank you @thepr1mebeachclub restaurant, Monte Gordo, Portugal for location and materials. Thank you for my assistant photographer and bartender @diogopinteus.
Thank you God that I can see the beauty of the world!
Chocolate mud cake with a little snow. Action shots are such a game changer, just by adding a little dusting to the scene you can totally change the energy and the mood of the picture.
I also chose a white & black theme for this picture. It is quite challenging to make B&W food pictures look appealing but I think this chocolate mud cake with airy little meringues looks just perfect in B&W.
This is not an ordinary tartare. Next to sophisticated additions such as grated yolk, paramesan chip, baked garlic aioli or mushroom, there is smoking smoke introduced into the dome. The photo captures the moment of serving the tartar when it is released from under the dome.

My idea behind this image was minimalistic. However this took numerous hours in editing, as each glass was shot multiple times, and then combine to create the best image of that particular glass. All of the glasses was then combined with the bottle shot itself.
This was a collaboration between me (the photographer), my mami Andrea (the ceramist, @andrea.pottery) and Martin Hoellrigl of @capitolagardenfeast (the chef). This was one of my favorite shots of the collab; everything fell into place so well it almost feels like all I did was press the shutter!
Kueh dadar (another Southeast Asian treat) in mille crepe cake form. Shot with natural light. The green crepes, the brown coconut filling/ topping, and pretty much all the other browns being picked up as yellow in Lightroom meant I had to be more careful in editing.
Breakfast or a dessert? This yogurt chia pudding with berries can surely be both. And it's easy to make it with frozen berries during colder months too.
I wanted to capture movement sharply here to attract the attention to all those pine nuts, which gave texture and interesting taste to the dish.
With the days getting shorter and cooler it will soon be time to look towards winter comfort foods and one of my favourites is 'Leek & Potato Soup'. This delicious soup is made from basic ingredients but produces a great tasting meal. Here we see a visual recipe of the soup and I hope it will inspire you to make some soon.
As a survivor of anorexia I still take a delight in having lost my fear of food. Now, using food as my inspiration for photography, I appreciate the art that can be made from humble classics.
This year in celebration of Negroni week I decided to create this image with the elements that help create the cocktail.
I have a special love for this cocktail. I decided to use the bottles and the colors in the background to contrast and also harmonize with the other elements. The light creates new color hues playing with the liquid transparency giving the image a luminous quality.
Love shooting fresh seasonal produce and simple dishes that hero the produce. Bruschetta reminds me of my travels to Italy a few years ago and an Italian cooking class in Florence, but in all honesty, I grew up on tomato and cucumber sandwiches. It's great they also make a great photo.
The hidden wine in the glass was an idea after enjoying this delicious Grauburgerunder from Baden on Lake Constance. This picture comes from a campaign for a wine merchant from northern Germany, my homeland. For the customer I have the full creativity for the customer acquisition a nice moment as a food photographer. The picture was exposed in my photo studio.
I love photographing strawberries because nothing is lost here. These were so super fresh and sweet. I bought them on the market. This time there was a new booth, owned by an older man, who sold knives. Of course I was interested, bought one and couldn't wait to start shooting with it.
I knew it had to be a still life, something old but fresh.
