Fine Dining!

Pakamisa Food

Who knows me well, knows that I love fine dining. This is one of the reasons why I am spending so much of my “off time” at Pakamisa Private Game Reserve – also enjoying their safaris on horseback and the very comfortable surroundings.

All of Pakamisa’s food is excellent and many of the menu items are also a feast for the eyes. So during this month’s visit I did no horse/wildlife photography, but I did a food photo shoot. This is very different photographic discipline. Even so, I think the results are not too bad.

🙂 … and an interesting bit of personal trivia:

My godfather was a very successful food photographer in the 60th and 70th in Switzerland. I even served as a Child model for some of his food shots (see collage at the end of the message). Well, I think he would be happy about these images and my work as a “food photographer”!

  1. The photography of the food is beautiful…and I am most sure you would have made your Godfather proud! and you haven’t changed much at all from your childhood photos…just now have a little more weight and facial hair, but the same sincere smile is there. Love all of your photos Christian…and I look at all of them (except for the kills) 😦 but the rest I am most interested in.
