LOOK: This Studio Offers Affordable Photography Services for Small Businesses

Get picturesque food photos for your brand in 2 to 3 days!

It’s no secret—our eyes (and sometimes, our phones) eat first. That’s why the visual appearance of your product is just as important as its taste. Plus, now that we’re in a social media-driven world, online advertising and branding are important for food businesses.

And good photos are just as important. But for startups and budding new businesses with not a lot of budget for advertising, professional photography services may be difficult to come by.

Not to worry! Koi No Yokan Studios, a wedding photography team, has now changed gears to offer food photography services for startups!

#HUHUbyKNYS: Help Us, Help U by Koi No Yokan Studios

Lovingly dubbed as #HUHUbyKNYS, or “Help Us, Help U by Koi No Yokan Studios,” this photography project is meant to help small businesses through affordable rates. Through contactless photoshoots, brands just need to send their food or drink on the day of the shoot and pay a professional fee that matches the price of their products!

Here’s a better look at their services and terms:

“Since the beginning of the pandemic, my wife and I have been thinking of a way to help,” explained owner Jarred Avendaño in an interview with When in Manila. “We are limited to staying at home for our toddler, but we refuse to just watch idly by and not be a part of our road to a ‘better normal’. So, we thought of offering our services to small businesses.”

With the goal of providing professional photos with a minimalist and clean theme, Koi no Yokan Studios hopes that they can help brands bring in more clients, especially through social media. Just look at some of the photos that they’ve taken for partner brands:

“Since June, we have been running #HUHUbyKNYS and we have helped more than a handful of stay-at-home moms, budding entrepreneurs who have lost their day jobs, and even a married couple who lost their business and is taking on a new venture,” added Avendaño.
