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.

🌼 Ainoa Winery's Aho - the name literally means meadow, so I wanted to bring typical Finnish wildflowers to the scene.
🥂 It is “A wine for the Finnish Summer” - as written on the label, so I set the colour palette to bring the summer vibes, and warm sunlight + incorporated a playful frozen action dedicated to every summer moment with a glass of wine.
🍓 Strawberries are not only the essential element of Finnish summer but also strawberry wine is one of the main components of Aho, hence beautiful local strawberries also appear on the scene.
You probably never realised, how versatile shapes and shades are included in your popcorn bag, so it's now my pleasure to highlight the beauty of a single piece of popcorn in this macro photo.92nd Collection
I styled and captured this scene for an amazing Finnish brand with natural fibre composite products, mostly utilised during outdoor activities, but the beautiful design, various size options and practicality make them perfectly suitable for the hospitality industry as well.92nd 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.90th 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.
