Food photographer extraordinaire, Stephen Hamilton is truly gifted when it comes to capturing the essence of edibles. Working in his natural light-filled West Loop studio, Stephen is insistent on using only real food when snapping photos.
His love food and interest in the culinary arts can also be seen in his blog “The Restaurant Project” in which he asses dishes from Chicago’s best restaurants by both taste and aesthetics.
Hamilton’s photographic work has been featured in high-profile projects such as Art Smith’s 'Back to the Family' cookbook, and throughout the chef’s residence on the hit Bravo television show ‘Top Chef’.
Hamilton’s ‘foodie status’ was recently raised when he was asked to be a guest judge on the upcoming season of "Top Chef Masters" airing in April 2010.
