Lisa Clark - Food Stylist based in Cape Town


My day to day life is anything but boring. Every day I am presented with a different product to prepare and style, a change in location and a host of creative personalities to interact with. At any given moment I may be up a ladder, frying hamburgers, sculpting fruit or painstakingly positioning sesame seeds with my tweezers. I often describe my work as "hair and make-up" for food in that, the product, which often starts off looking less than pretty, needs to ultimately look mouth-watering and delicious. I find the diverse world in which I work both stimulating and exciting, and enjoy its dynamic nature. There is never a dull moment on set, and often the behind the scenes images show just how many tricks of the trade are used in order to create the shot that the consumer will finally see on the packaging or in the magazine.
