Alina takes photos of food vans for a website. She likes taking the photos. And she also likes eating the food. What have you done with all the Portuguese tarts, Alina?
I recently had the very great pleasure of creative custom stock photos of food vans and market stalls for the Victorian Department of Health's Streatrader website. This is the place you go if you need to get a permit for a mobile food trading situation of any sort, in Victoria.
We had a city mouse, country mouse situation with two photographers. One of us photographed the city vans, and my job was to capture the rustic and the country vans. I was happy with that!
My favourite opening gambit was "Hi, I'm Alina. I'm here to take some photos for the Department of Health. NO no no! *waves hands* Not for an inspection!"
By the time I photographed my last stall at the Daylesford Market, my reputation had preceded me and folks already knew who I was. And then I just sort of rolled out of there. Well, it was only fair that I bought produce from the good sports I took photos of.
