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 recipes and culinary stories as a blogger and recipe developer. The new chapter in my profession is the role of a creative educator and workshop facilitator.
My principles are uniqueness, exceptionality and fine details.
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.
- Who you gonna call?
