AUCKLAND, Today: Film Construction has welcomed consummate food and beverage photographer Manja Wachsmuth to its roster. Executive producer Belinda Bradley said: “Manja has won awards and fans with her impeccable Scandinavian sense of elegant composition, and she’s currently listed as a Lürzer’s Archive top 200 ad photographer.
“Manja creates masterful food photography—captivating product shots, expressive portraiture and lifestyle imagery that intrigues.
“Danish-born but now resident in Auckland, Manja’s work is a testament to photographic power. From darkroom beginnings to culinary artistry, she has become a master of precision and purpose in commercial photography.
“Especially food and all its intricacies.
Wachsmuth says she believes in the profound impact of beautiful photos and compelling narratives.
“Beautiful photos last,” she said. “They tell your story year after year, through trends and seasons, failure and success. They shine with you. It’s easy to think that any photo will do, but that’s as untrue as any meal or any wine will do. I believe in beautiful photos.”
“Manja has etched her name as photographer for food and beverage projects. But her diverse portfolio includes people, objects, landscapes, and interiors.”
