I’m Shilpa and I’m so thrilled you found me here at Shilpa Iyer Eats. I’m a professional food photographer, videographer and stylist living along the Jersey Shore. I was raised in Singapore, and many of you might know that our love for food is what defines a Singaporean. I could talk about the food in Singapore all day and about our hawker center culture, but you’ll just have to take my word for it that I love food and everything about it. And as a photographer, I get to channel my love for food and work with clients helping them create strong images for their brands.
I work with a variety of restaurants and brands in the NJ area to provide them with powerful photography and video content for their websites or social channels. Are you tired of paying for stock images that don’t really represent your brand at all? I create stunning visual content using your restaurant or brand’s vision that will set you apart from your competition. As a food photographer and stylist, I can be hired for various projects that include restaurant, cafe and bakery photography, food-related product photography, photography and video content for food bloggers, and cookbook photography.
Interested in videos? I also offer food videography such as 15 and 30 second reels and "hands and pans" style recipe videos for your brands. Head over to my YouTube channel to see what I could do for you.
I was recently named one of the 7 Best Food Photographers in the Newark, NJ area. In addition, I am also a contributing photographer to King Arthur Baking Company's latest edition of King Arthur Baker's Companion.
When I'm not traveling or in my photography studio working on images for Ad campaigns, you'll find me in my kitchen creating easy family recipes influenced by both my parents' South Indian culture as well the Singaporean culinary heritage I grew up in. I also tend to immerse myself in my slightly overwhelming cookbook collection in an effort to bring the world to my dinner table.
