About Me



Hi! I'm Lenka.

My aim in food photography is to let food shine in it's best light, showing off its natural beauty in a sense-awakening way, creating an emotional response of desire in the viewer. I love to buy, prepare and share seasonal and local food and can't avoid pleasure sounds when eating something good. 


Can I help you?


I create food photography that stands out for restaurants, magazines, brands and books. 

My life-long passion for food, combined with my background in  psychology and neuroscience let me grasp the vision of my clients especially well and translate it into images that evoke a response of desire in the viewer - the desire to try the food and to belong to the food scene that is represented. 

Food to me means love, self-care, community and sharing. It’s omnipresent in our lives and weaves through our histories, which is why I love telling stories around food with my images. My aim always is to create photos that evoke all of our senses - creating a holistic experience. I focus on an organic, sometimes rustic look and mostly natural light to let the intrinsic beauty of food shine.



A few words about me


As the wolf in a book that my kids own, every time I finish a meal I start thinking about the next. And while I'm totally in for the occasional sugary and buttery temptation, I keep my every day choices healthy and centred around seasonal and local whole food. Want to know more?

I’ve not always been a food photographer, I’ve been a waitress and an au-pair, I’ve taught some swing dancing, I made jewellery, studied Psychology, taught University classes, travelled the world and got a PhD in Neuroscience. Still, food photography feels like home, it unites my passions for food, being creative and master technique. With food photography I can work late nights after long days without taking notice (and I’m a total morning person!). 

When I’m not shopping for ingredients, cooking, setting up a food scene or shooting, you can find me playing with my kids, at a café or bar chatting with a friend, cycling, running or swimming, reading a good book or weeding my vegetable garden.
