Nader Khouri and the teams he brings together produce authentic editorial and advertising imagery of food and people. From the beginning of his projects he focuses on having a well planned pre-production process to guide the shoot with a clear vision and goals. Whether it is putting together a mood board, shot list, or scouting before the shoot Nader and his team do what it takes to produce the compelling imagery clients are looking for. From having worked as a photojournalist for 10 years and 5 years in the commercial realm Nader now easily switches back and forth from the two. It was from telling people’s stories that he honed his ability to anticipate moments and combine them with special attention to composition and light. His work has been honored most recently in Communication Arts and the American Photographic Artist’s SF Something Personal exhibit. He is a San Francisco Bay Area native and loves discovering all the new restaurants and bars in San Francisco and Oakland. He makes sure to balance out his urban lifestyle by spending many weekends exploring the rivers and lakes in northern California.
