Studio Name

Three Pod Studio

HI, I AM REKA CSULAK
founder of Three Pod Studio, food photographer & stylist, recipe developer, blogger and creative educator, working locally and internationally.
I found the biggest motif and passion in my life in gastronomy with a pinch of art.

I am Hungarian, living an ex-pat life in Finland, but also lived and worked in Sweden and the United Kingdom. I work remotely from my studio near Helsinki, and I happily travel upon request to capture remarkable frames around the globe.

I preserve the moment as a commercial food and product photographer, use my creativity as a food stylist and share my own recipes and culinary stories as a blogger and recipe developer. The new chapter in my profession is the role of a creative educator.

My principles are uniqueness, exceptionality and fine details.

Winning photos

Banana boba drink product photo with monochromatic styling, unusual perspective and some action incorporated.

91st Collection

Mead and doughnuts are the essential partnof the 1 May menu in Finland. I brought them to the nature and captured them amonst these beautiful wood anemones that are blooming in the forest this time of the year.

91st Collection

Mead is a traditional drink on 1 May in Finland and as the celebration is not complete without balloons I combined them both on one image.

91st Collection

Food pattern created with a selection of hand-made raw sausages and some of their signature spices. Even though raw sausages are a tough subject to shoot commercially, the Client loved my approach.

90th Collection

When this top Finnish chocolate brand launched a cinnamon bun-flavoured bar, it became my absolute favourite, and so I dedicated some time to capturing it in a simple yet playful way.

Cupcakes with vibrant pink frosting call for Spring, and are even more relatable by the human touch.

Lean back and enjoy this cup of winter-themed hot chocolate. Look how the marshmellow snowman enjoy it… after the first sip, a wide smile will be guaranteed on your face too!

87th Collection

Who does’t love commercial images if the art director keeps the visual branding in mind when coming up with the creative concept? Reka designed the visuals for this Nordic rye ale in a way that the can appears in a frosty environment!

87th Collection

⁠I shot the gin bottle in this cool environment of concentric circles and I took my sweet time to choose one of the endless options in product photography and post-processing, and the concept finally boiled down to this result so I executed my vision. ⁠I decided to utilise some illustrations to create the feeling of looking outside and seeing the silhouette of galloping deer in the forest.⁠

86th Collection

I have a constant fear that something's always near...????????⁠

Named after the similarly titled album of Iron Maiden, this roasted dark chocolate-flavoured English stout that is so good that you will crawl to the store to get one.⁠ I love the label design.
⁠If you ever wonder what's wrong with my hand: nothing! I masked and painted a prop hand to look this creepy, so I did not have to crawl under the table to capture this scene, I added real smoke to create a cold night mist, and applied colourful gels to create the specific lighting. ⁠
