Food Stylist and CEO at Chef Payal Gupta Foodstyling

Sep 2009 - Present

Food stylist,Creative Culinary director for Food brand advertisements in TV ads,Digital video,Editorial magazine stills. Beauty defies the concept of space and boundaries. Neither can it be contained. Add to that it brings in joy to the person creating it and the observer experiencing it. My work involves beautifying and perfecting food for packaging,food websites,food recipes and food commercials. At times I dress food tables up with flowers to bring in a touch of warmth to the ambiance during shoots and thus land up doubling as a food and floral stylist. Its been 6 years since I stepped into this industry and still feel as if it is my first. I have even worked as a product stylist for a FMCG companies and collaborated with various food giants to tailormake recipes for them.
