Wildwater Grill in Dee Why wanted to update their library of menu photography for their restaurant dishes.

Great menu photography can help a location really stand out on social media, business websites and online review sites when people are looking for new food places to try out. Wildwater Grill in Dee Why contracted us to do menu photography for their restaurant that was about to re-open.

The management team had recently changed and they had recently updated their website but needed new photography to show off the venue, their menu & the great food on offer. 

It is so important these days for a restaurant to have great food photography to be able to compete with hundreds of different venues online. Vibrant, clear photos will attract people’s attention quickly compared to ones taken on a mobile phone.


The menu photography was then going to used by their website design agency, for their social media marketing and promotional use. 

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

  • 30 different food dishes as a stock image.
  • A hero shot of their menu dishes grouped together to use on Menulog, Deliveroo and Ubereats.
  • Photos of their range of drinks, cocktails and other beverages.
We managed to complete the food photography session in a few of hours without disrupting their staff. It meant their business could operate as per normal while the work was being carried out.

our recent reviews

“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.”

“Wonderful, timely photos and great personal service. So pleased to have worked with Paul.”
