We get it.

That's why we offer an easy, one-button solution for restaurants like yours to tell their stories. Through photography, videography, and strategy, we provide a steady stream of gorgeous content and then empower you to use this content to make a big impact on your website, social media, and beyond.

There are a lot of people out there doing parts of what we do, but we want joining The Restaurant Project to be different. We know we're not cheap, but we are asking you to invest in yourselves — not only in the best photography and videography, but in your continuing education as a business owner, chef or marketer.

Learn more about our process below.


includes: creative direction, catalog shoot (photo and video) and one strategy session



1. Creative Direction

We make you look like you.

It all starts with a conversation. Your first meeting with The Restaurant Project is a Creative Direction Session to help us learn what inspires you about your restaurant and translate that into pictures. In addition to developing a visual style guide for your imagery, we will get to know more about your specific photography hopes, dreams and needs. We'll also learn more about your plans for the images and videos so that we can lay a solid groundwork for your first Strategy Session.




Let the cameras roll.

This initial, full-day photo and video shoot is so important to our process. It helps us comprehensively capture your restaurant to get you off on the right foot.

This shoot includes stylized food, ingredient shots, kitchen process, FOH action, portraits, interiors and exteriors. In addition to the photography, you'll get a taste of our web and social-first video content.

After the shoot, we deliver a library of 150 - 200 images and 5 video clips. You will have full licensing rights to these files, so they are ready to bring new life to your website, social media, marketing, and advertising.



3. Choose A photo subscription

We keep it fresh.

After your initial Catalog Shoot, we provide you with new photography on the regular. We tested our subscription-based services for over a year to get it right and came up with two easy options. All you need to do is choose which schedule works best for your business.

4. Strategy Session

We empower you to use this content to actually bring customers through the door.

This is what brings The Restaurant Project full circle. After the photos and videos are ready from your Catalog Shoot, we meet for your first one-on-one Strategy Session. We hate calling it a "boot camp," but it is basically a boot camp where we provide an overview of social media best practices and help you create an action plan for your imagery. In addition to this first session, we can also provide additional consulting and in-depth workshops for your team.

5. Make new videos

After your first shoot, you can choose to book video shoots as needed or schedule them out on a regular basis to feed the social media beast and grow your following.
