Reared in the innovative culinary climes of Northern California, the daughter of a pastry chef and successful restaurateur, it’s little wonder that the professional future of Photographer & Food Stylist Kelly Sterling was guided primarily by a love and appreciation for fine foods. Working with such celebrated conglomerates as Google, Coca-Cola and Southern Living, and counting some of the hottest restaurants in the country as clients, Sterling brings a consummately clean and deeply personal aesthetic to each of her shoots. Living, loving and working in South Florida for the last 8 years, Sterling complements her keen eye with professional chef training. With a globe’s worth of plates for her to capture, what are some of her favorites? “The odder, the better,” she says. “Ingredients like sea urchin and raw whole fish always photograph beautifully.”; KellySterling.com.
