Food photographer Christina Peters, whose claim to fame is working with iconic food brands such as Pinkberry, Taco Bell, McDonalds, Arby's, and many more, recently announced that she is quitting the fast food industry. Having worked with Christina since 2005, I am both excited to see what's next for her as well as sad that SternRep will be seeing her go.
Her success as one of the best food photographers around is irrefutable and we look forward to seeing her take her passion to new markets.
Christina on her big decision:
ANNOUNCEMENT: As of December 2016, I am no longer shooting for brands that make commercially processed foods. After dealing with digestion issues my whole life and finally dealing with it in August of 2015 at the age of 46, I came to realize the Standard American Diet is hurting us, if not killing us and I do not want to contribute to this growing problem any more.
If you look at my client roster from my 25 years of photographing food, I pretty much have every major fast food brand listed. My clients were wonderful and these jobs were very fun and I am very grateful for that.
I am still shooting, but only for companies who are making food products I feel comfortable promoting.
Her next big project, a site called The Food Photography Club will be a "site dedicated to all things food photography and teaching everything you need to know to become a food photographer with a community environment." She plans to launch in April of 2017. Food photographers everywhere will now be able to benefit from her incredible expertise.
