About Barbara Wrigley McDevitt

Hi, there! I’m Barbara Wrigley McDevitt, an independent, award-winning, professional food and beverage photographer. 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 to Miami, West Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale, Orlando and surrounding areas.

Atlanta and its surrounding vicinities are also within my purview.

I'm a light chaser, a content creator and a teller of stories without words. I have a diverse style that emphasizes beautiful light, texture and contrast. My goal with each image is to entice the viewer to partake in the scene and ultimately make them hungry.

If you are looking for someone who squeezes as many variations of the food subject as possible into the allotted time period - that's not me. While I'm certainly efficient, I'm also deliberate, focused, thorough and methodical, always aware of creating a strong narrative by focusing on content over style.

On a day-to-day basis, I’m happiest producing mouth-watering imagery that stands-out from the crowd. I frequently work on client projects in my studio but if you can't travel to me I offer live viewing of the shoot remotely. I also love the spontaneity of traveling for a photoshoot and capturing the unique character and food of an interesting place.

Thanks for stopping by. If you like what you see and you’re interested in working together, please contact me! Want to see more? Check out my Instagram account.
