    I have been hired to shoot for a day at a local Italian Restaurant and this will be the first restaurant that Ive photographed. They would like some artsy shots of the food which i can do but as far as displaying the actual building, i need motivation.

    Anyone know of any photographer's work or a website that could give me some ideas on how to approach this new challenge? How about a restaurant with a nice photo based website?

    Any help would be very much appreciated. Thanks.

    Speak with the client and come up with a plan together. If you start looking at other photographers work your work is going to look like other photographers. The idea is to separate yourself from the pack.

    Hmm that is a very solid point. I guess if they hired me based off my work they already like my style... or my price hahah.

    Ill jump into it an let you know how it goes.

    Not to deter people from this site or anything...
    Just written (I think?)... found it quite helpful, the video was also quite interesting.
