My name is Barbara Wrigley McDevitt, owner of Wrigley McDevitt Photography, and I'm a Southwest Florida based food photographer. I specialize in editorial and commercial food photography including restaurant branding.
I am fortunate to be able to serve the Southwest Florida area. From my home studio, I serve Tampa, St. Petersburg, Sarasota, Punta Gorda, Fort Myers, Naples, and all of Southwest Florida. I'm also available for on-location projects involving domestic and international travel.
I specialize in visually driven food photographs with an emphasis on light, shadows, color and contrast—whether a single image for a menu, multiple images for a cookbook, food images for product packaging and advertising and restaurant branding including chef’s portraits, restaurant style and architecture, and plates of delicious food.
I am best known for my creative approach to composition, my style of capturing food scenes with natural light or strobes (when natural light is not available) and the ability to adapt my style from dark and moody - to light and airy - to bold and contemporary. Since my studio opened in 2008 I have photographed countless images in which food has been the major focus whether for product packing, menus, cookbooks, restaurant advertising, editorial articles for food magazines and commercial food projects.
I have an extensive collection of vintage and contemporary props including plates, bowls and other dinnerware, linens, tableware, cookware, glasses and other sundry items. I frequently prop my own images but also have working relationships with several individuals who do nothing else but prop and style food images.
I also have an extensive collection surfaces and other backgrounds for photographing food. The surfaces include aged barn wood, a variety of light and dark grey concrete surfaces, charcoal surfaces, textured blues and greens, multiple blue surfaces with different shade variations, white distressed, water-colored and more!. The surfaces also come in a variety of sizes including table-top.If you are looking for the most creative, most skilled food photographer in Southwest Florida then Wrigley McDevitt Photography is the studio for you.
I am a proud member of the International Association of Culinary Professionals, Nikon Professional Services and the Better Business Bureau.
