For those who shoot for restaurant menus, how do you usually approach them?

I shoot lots of restaurant menus, though generally for chain restaurants, very rarely single locations.

I use a variety of methods to approach new business; e-mailers, post cards, cold calls, networking/referrals, etc. Timing is a critical element...contact someone when they don't have an immediate need for your services and your information generally gets put aside. I much prefer it when they contact me.

For a single location/small restaurant I'd think simply getting in touch with the owner either in person or by phone would be enough to start the discussion. Have a killer portfolio, a dynamic personality and you're 3/4 of the way there.

Best of luck.


My answer for most photography questions: "it depends...'

Too hot to cook, so it's a light snack for tonight. I found some artichoke bruschetta at the store on my way home tonight, so that was dinner. Going to have to make my own next time.

Finally got my first edible batch of home made sourdough - not very sour (starter is young) but still good.

Some stuff over the previous weeks. Culinary credit goes to my wife (except the waffles; I made those)...

These two are over a year old.
These were actually shot for a newspaper coverage of a French person who has a business here in Finland where he comes to your house and makes you a dinner.
Though it was never printed...
