Sophie Saks is a natural light portrait and commercial food photographer based in Des Moines, Iowa. Applying the same attention to detail and the fine-art approach she uses for portraiture in her food photography, Saks’ images provide a “fresh” perspective on what we eat. Simple compositions, shallow depth-of-field and bold colors are defining elements in her work.

After studying photography at Grand View and having spent many years working in restaurants, Saks became fascinated with food, the cooking process and even the people behind-the-scenes that create each plate. She decided to combine her passions for photography and food, and has since been providing on-location food styling and photography for Des Moines-area restaurants and vendors, as well as print and digital marketing services.
