We get it.

That's why we want to make it easy for you to tell your story. 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 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.

We work with everyone from brand new restaurateurs to James Beard Award-winning chefs (quite a lot of those, come to think of it).

Learn more about our process below.



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 your visual style, we will get to know more about your specific needs, hopes and dreams.

Let the cameras roll.

Every shoot is a little different, including a mix of styled menu items, ingredient shots, kitchen process, front-of-house action, portraits, interiors and exteriors.

We offer full-day, half-day and regular (monthly or twice-monthly) photo shoots to perfectly fit your restaurant’s needs.

After each shoot, we add to your library of images in both high and low resolution. With full licensing rights included, they are ready to bring new life to your website, social media, marketing, and advertising.

Capture the action.

Video is powerful. It generates 12x more shares on social media. Putting a video on your website increases conversion by 80%. That means a person who lands on your site and sees a video will be 80% more likely to make a reservation or follow you on Instagram or sign up for your email list or stop in for a drink that night. That's huge!

You can choose to book video shoots as needed or schedule mini shoots on a regular basis to feed the social media beast and grow your following.

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

This is what brings The Restaurant Project full circle. We can provide consulting and in-depth workshops for your team to learn how to use this new content to share your story with the world. Or we can manage the storytelling, copywriting and publishing for you in a full-service experience.
