Food + Restaurant + Product
I am fascinated with the culinary world and the people, places and plates that surround it. Food itself embodies so much more than just satisfying our immediate hunger. It is something we all know, we rely on it to live, we need it to survive. Yet as our lives become more complicated we tend to become more disconnected from our plates. My photography is fueled by my desire to alleviate this disconnect. I share my enthusiasm and appreciation by focusing on vibrant colors, textures and movement in the culinary world.
I graduated with honors from the Western Academy of Photography in Victoria, BC, Canada. Upon graduating from photography school I received the top Provincial and the top National awards from the Professional Photographers of Canada and Fujifilm. I have also been the recipient of the IACP (International Association of Culinary Professionals) Best of Show Photography Award.
I helped spearhead the creation of Teton Family Magazine as the photo editor and continue to contribute as a recipe tester, stylist and photographer. I am currently the Food Editor for BigLIfe Magazine, Photography Director for PUNCH Magazine
and a featured contributer for Edible Silicon Valley Magazine.
I produce commercial photography for restaurants and products near and far. I am thrilled that my Fine Art photography can be found in personal and commercial collections worldwide.
My time is spent between the majestic mountains of Sun Valley, Idaho and the amazing farms and coastline of Half Moon Bay, California. When I am not out exploring in the mountains or walking barefoot in the sand at the beach then I can be found in our kitchen home-making simple, nourishing meals made from scratch for my family made out of real, local, fresh food.
If you are curious about my last name Phlipot, yes, the L actually does come before the i. It's pronounced as Flipō. :)
