Meet our guest
Freddy Clark’s career took a couple of twists and turns before becoming a Beverage and Food Photographer. After a decade working full time in radio, the birth of his daughter inspired his love for photography. After spending a couple of years shooting weddings for other studios, he was asked if he would do some food shots for a local restaurant and found his calling.
Today, Freddy works for Beverage Brands and restaurants as the photographer of Santé Beverage & Food Photography. He has taught workshops on photography for Princeton Photo Workshops, Canon, and independently.
