There are many methods to photograph food. Editorial style is exciting and full of motion and energy. These images are often created for magazines and newspapers to help tell a story. Editorial food photography is usually shot on location, such as at a restaurant, test kitchen or processing plant. It is common for photographers to use natural or ambient light for this style of photography. Window light and the use of low apertures to create a shallow depth of field is common. Rosh generally uses a shallow depth of field for his editorial style photographs, but he often uses his own lighting for additional control.

Branding, cookbook and catalog food images are generally more refined. Rosh creates these images to represent the product for packaging and advertising. Sometimes these photographs are created on location, but it is more common to set them up in the studio with a full production team for the best results.

Some branding campaigns incorporate an editorial style of photography. Traditionally these images are well-lit and use a large depth of field so everything in the scene is in focus. Rosh will often create a hybrid of the two styles depending on the goal and vision of the client.

Rosh earned his photography degree from the College for Creative Studies in Detroit Michigan. He photographs regularly for fortune 500 companies, magazines, established and start-up businesses.
