Original Grain is a fresh, fast-casual eatery that brings California-vibes to Upstate, New York. The founders of the restaurant are passionate about creating a hip and inviting atmosphere, with focus on health-concious and unique menu items.

Product Photography

Plating and consistency are high priorities for the crew at OG. They asked us to provide product photography for their beautiful dishes. Each bowl was assembled by the crew in their kitchen, and rushed down the hall for lighting, styling and photography in a makeshift studio.

Besides the delcious and beautifully plated dishes, Original Grain has created a casual and vibrant atmosphere for both their customers, and their squad. We captured scenes of the crew assembling dishes, chatting with customers, and people enjoying the beautifully lit restaurant, for OG’s social media content.
