Tara Klippert

Food & Product Photographer based in Whitehorse, Yukon.

You want your business to look professional and legitimate, and ultimately to make more sales and grow.

Having professionally done images will help you to:

  • Develop lifelong trust and loyalty with your customers. It will allow you to portray or highlight the value and positive impact your products can make in their lives.
  • Communicate your vision and story behind your business, and make people fall in love with you and your products!
  • And ultimately, it will help you stand out from the rest of your competition.

BUT you likely don’t have the time or energy to focus on learning photography just so you can take your own images.

It can take months if not years to learn the principles of photography – lighting, composition, camera settings, etc.

Not to mention all the frustrating technical stuff like lighting, camera settings, photo editing, and cropping and formatting your photos for use on all of the different platforms.

You should be spending your time working on your business, not in it. Your time is valuable!

The benefits of working with a professional photographer

You don’t have to stress about having images to share on social media or your website.

You look super professional in all of your advertising – online and in print.

You can tell your story with impact and emotion, and genuinely connect with more clients and customers.

And most importantly, you can increase your sales and grow your business.

What to expect when working with me

I would love to help you photograph your food dishes or products! Here’s what to expect:

  1. We will get to know each other so I can learn about you, your products and the vision for your business.
  2. We will work together to determine the vision for the images, and what you want to portray to your customers through them.
  3. We will talk about what you will be using your images for so that I can provide the correct formats (e.g. for reels, instagram posts, website/online store, poster/brochures, print materials etc.).
  4. We will talk about existing branding or guidelines to ensure that the imagery complements the style of your existing website and social media content.
  5. I will provide you an estimate/quote. We can discuss it to make sure everyone feels good before moving forward.
  6. I will shoot and edit the final photos with input from you.
  7. I will send you the final deliverables within 1 week – all properly sized and formatted for the various different uses.
  8. You can go forth with sharing all the things on all the platforms!

My journey to food and product photography

When I was a kid I always enjoyed cooking. Everything about it from start to finish. Thinking about what to make, getting the ingredients for it, making it, presenting it nicely, and then eating it of course!

In my early 20s I started my first food blog and started taking pictures of all of my food.

Years later I started a second food blog (the one you are currently on!) after going to school for holistic nutrition.

I decided if I wanted to be successful at food blogging I needed to up my photography skills because at the time my food photos were REAL BAD.

With some Christmas money I got, I purchased my first DSLR camera (a Canon Rebel T7I) and a 50 mm lens.

I’ve spent the last four years learning about composition, lighting, exposure, food styling, and photo editing.

Turns out, I really love photography!

I also became interested in taking photographs of products too! And both food and product photography require most of the same equipment like lighting, backdrops, props, and an overhead tripod for mounting my camera.

I recently decided to transition from working on my food blog and online store (where I sell PDF meal plans and cookbooks) to doing food and product photography professionally!

Below you will find my portfolio of food and product images.
