Nader Khouri turns up the heat on food photography
Nader Khouri is well known for his dynamic food photography – and now he’s making pots and pans look fabulous, too. Hestan, a high quality cookware company, contacted Nader last year and they’ve been making beautiful photos together ever since.
The company was prepping to launch their new Hestan Cue Smart Cooking System – a sensor enabled induction burner and sauté pan that connect to your smart device via Bluetooth. “It was a tall order,” says Nader. “They needed 200 recipes photographed for the app, plus ingredient shots – it meant shooting on a weekly basis.”
He must be doing something right. Shortly into his project with Hestan Cue, they introduced him to sister cookware line NanoBond and he’s since done two shoots for them as well. “The second shoot was super exciting because we showcased the kitchen of Chef Corey Lee at his three Michelin-starred restaurant Benu, stocked with NanoBond. Obviously, Chef Corey does his own food styling,” laughs Nader.
Outside of Hestan, Nader continues to shoot food photography and lifestyle projects, always inspired by his personal mission to promote eating and living well. You can see more of his cravings-worthy work here.
