I'm Maiko, it's so nice to meet you!
I’m the owner, recipe developer and photographer behind The Chestnut Bakery. It’s no secret that one of my greatest passions is photography – especially, food photography. I love creating food, styling it, and capturing that special moment about it. I started creating plant-based recipes and photographing them a decade ago. It quickly developed into my greatest passion and profession.
I truly believe every recipe and inherently the food has a story to tell – from the moment that food is planted to the moment it is served on a plate. It’s one of the things I enjoy most about food photography; to catch a special moment in each stage of its story.
Photography is one of the most important ingredients in the food industry – to be noticed and catch the eyes of the right audience is tougher than ever, and I know how difficult it is to stand out from the crowd.
My goal is to help brands, companies, publications, restaurants, cafes, and small business owners with plant-based friendly products or services who strive to make the world a better place achieve their goals by producing outstanding food photography.
