Are you all as excited for the upcoming Easter as I am? While winter doesn’t seem to finally go away, the clock is still ticking, and it’s high time to get it on with some spring-time yummy things. As always, I am happy to share with you guys what I’ve been up to lately.

Longing for the spring. Issue #01/2013

Hi from the busy food photography department that is my studio! Are you folks as excited as I am about this winter getting close to its end already? That’s right, pretty soon the snow (we do have some lying around here in Germany right now) will finally melt, making way for the spring season of 2013.

Can’t wait to shoot summer images, but still this winter has brought some exciting opportunities, cooperations, photoshoots, and cooking challenges as well. As always, I do appreciate you reading and following this blog, and would love to share some of the recent images with you guys!

It’s beginning to look alot like Christmas! Issue #05/2012

No, no, no – I haven’t been  lazy or anything! To the contrary – the amount of images I am shooting has been continuously growing lately, which sort of totally kicked me off track with this blog.
As the Christmas season is closing in, I decided to take some time off the daily routine and to share some of the pictures – and a couple of my favorite recipes! – with you guys! For those of you who are fortunate to read German, there are more of my images and corresponding recipes spread across recent issues of ‘So isst Italien’ and ‘LandGenuss’.

Summer days, healthy food, good times – you too? Issue #04/2012

How is this summer treating you so far, dear readers and followers? Particularly in Europe, it hasn’t been the sunniest so far, but they keep promising that the ‘real summer’ still might be just around the corner!

I have been incredibly busy over the last weeks, creating recipes and styling/shooting tons of images for the magazines I work with. SO here is my update for the food photography summer so far, packed in selected images  – hope you’ll enjoy it! As always, be sure to check out the original recipes in the ‘So isst Italien’ and ‘Landgenuss’ magazines, and let me know how you liked those!

Hello sweet summer! Issue #03/2012

For us (and for the most of our readers) the summer has already landed, bringing not only warm temperatures and sunshine, but also notable amount of work to be done, including cooking, styling, shooting, etc. – which is a great fun as always.

So here we are again, reporting back from the food photography kitchen! We’ve got a special selection of pictures to share, and we do hope you like them. Many of these images could be recently seen, for instance, in the fine German magazine “So is(s)t Italien”, and if you are on a lookout for even more of Ira’s productions, be sure to check out the “LandGenuss” magazine as well!

Spring again! Food again! Issue #02/2012

Happy spring time everybody!

While it did take us a good chunk of time to come out with this post, rest assures we did not put this blog to rest. We’ve been busy in our respective lines of work – Ira was cooking, styling and shooting food for various magazines, and Jive at one point saw himself facing more work than he deemed manageable,  so it resulted in a silent period for FoodThruALens.

Here’s to a sweet, healthy and safe 2012! Issue #01/2012

Issue #01/2012

Happy New Year 2012, dear readers, and welcome to the Issue #1 of this brand new year! We’ve been busy over the last few weeks – partly due to the work schedule(s), partly because this time of year is always about family reunions and friend visits. Which, of course, does mean cooking and eating in obscene amounts, so if you think we’ve been away from everything related to food these days – we haven’t!
