My name is Barbara Wrigley McDevitt, owner of Wrigley McDevitt Photography. I call Southwest Florida home, an area which includes Port Charlotte, Punta Gorda, Fort Myers, Estero, Bonita Springs, Naples and Marco Island. Sarasota, Tampa and St. Petersburg are a short cruise up I-75 from me. And I'm a quick road trip away from Miami, West Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale, Orlando and surrounding areas. I specialize in editorial and commercial food and beverage photography including a subspeciality of resort restaurant photography and am available to work remotely or on-location.
Specializing in visually driven food photographs with an emphasis on light, shadows, color and contrast, I have over a dozen years of experience behind the camera. Focusing on commercial and editorial food and drink photography my subjects may be 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'm best known for my creative approach to composition with a diverse style that encompasses a range from light, bright and clean to dark and moody depending on the client’s wishes. In all cases the imagery emphasizes light, texture and contrast with the goal of inviting the viewer to join whatever scene is depicted.
With years of experience under my belt the ability to problem solve on set in real time without delaying the schedule comes naturally.
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 for a living.
My food collection also includes an extensive collection of 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 and oversized.If you are looking for a creative and skilled food photographer in the South Florida or Southwest Florida areas 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.
