Stockholm based Bianca Brandon-Cox – one of Swedens most passionate food photographers and prop stylists – is also producing film and video for social media. Recently she has been doing several gastro-documentaries à la Chef’s Table, Restaurant menu videos, Product videos, Recipe videos and Online-courses with appreciated Swedish food influencers such as the master baker Sébastien Boudet and the forager Lisen Sundgren.
”I love the way food communicates culture, history, social trends, passion and craftsmanship. Its ability to create emotions, memories and bonds between people fascinates me. I am just as passionate about the people behind the food and their ability to create masterpieces.”
It’s no surprise that the camera has become Bianca’s weapon of choice – she more or less grew up in a darkroom. Bianca’s grandmother was an avid photographer and she inspired Bianca to pick up the camera herself.
Inspired by her work as an Art Director for food photo shoots, in 2009 Bianca focused her own business entirely on food and beverage. Today she is an appreciated food photographer, prop stylist, film producer, film director and DoP on food films.
In eight years she has done 15 books and several of them has won prices such as ‘Best in the World’ in the Gourmand World Cookbook Awards. She is also therefore assigned as an editor for books.
During twenty years of photography Bianca has also studied marketing, digital strategies and worked at three Advertising Agencies (specializing in food) as a graphic designer and as an Art Director. This experience constantly contributes to all her productions. Several clients also assign Bianca as a Content Manager and for consulting services such as marketing strategi and food trend analysis.
”I might be an unusual photographer doing many different things but that’s what keeps me updated and gives me the possibility to see the whole picture. My experience is that the client appreciates the control they get over the production when they engage me.”
Her clients range between small producers and big commercial companies, including Arla Foods, Axfood, Mars Nordics, Philips, Oatly, Urtekram, Kung Markatta, Svenskt kött, Restaurant Mistral, Gourmet Magazine, Travel + Leisure Magazine, Giorni, Bonnier, Norstedts, Semic and Brillbee.
