Eternity Cafe Food Photography in Sydney

An inner city cafe needed food photography for their new menu to use on social media and their website.

This cafe food photography session saw photos being taken at Eternity Cafe in the heart of the city next to Town Hall. The cafe is in a unique position next to the underground waterfall that makes up part of the underground walkways around Town Hall Train Station. 

The cafe had just changed Chef and revised their menu in a bid to improve profitability, sales and to keep growing their social media profile. The food photography they had used previously was bright, colourful, vibrant and really celebrated food, so our goal was to keep that idea consistent with their new menu dishes.


The brief for this cafe food photography session was to take photos of;

  • Each new dish as a stock image.
  • Each new dish on a table set up.
  • Each new dish being eaten or cut into.
  • Their new environmentally friendly straws.
  • Special menu items.
We managed to complete the photo shoot in a couple of hours without disrupting the workflow of the cafe or annoying other Customers. Eternity Cafe began using their new photos immediately to promote their new menu items.

our recent reviews

I recently asked Paul to take some business shots of me for my speaking , coaching and training business . We met in a cafe at Maroubra and after lunch he did a few snaps in the cafe and on a quiet laneway. Within 24 hours he sent me the final product and I bought all of his 38 photos of me . They were that good . Super impressed with Paul direct no BS style , his speed and value for money

“We recently hired Paul to take photos of our retail location which comprises lifestyle, cafe, plants, garden. He was amazing. Did a thorough job in advance to know what we wanted so we could then work quickly on the day of shooting. He was self sufficient and worked quickly to get the shots done within our timeframe and budget. The shots he delivered were incredible and we literally chose everyone! Would highly recommend.”

“Paul was very fexible and accommodating when engaged to take professional photos of our executives and photograph our corporate Christmas dinner and entertainment. Paul was fun to work with on the night.”
