Best Food Styling Commercial 1st Place
Heidi Robb is an award-winning food stylist armed with an unabashed obsession for transforming food and ingredients to their peak of lusciousness. Her styling reflects a strong eye for detail and design coupled with a sensibility for authenticity and story-telling. Moods are expressed through layering of texture, color and perceived flavors. With over three decades of restaurant, catering, baking and chef experience behind her, the segue into styling evolved naturally as an extension of those skills which now serve editorial and commercial print styling, as well as motion. She leads sell-out styling workshops and has been an exhibitor at the International FoodPhoto Festival in Vejle, Denmark. Heidi’s home is next to a river and the woods in a small village just outside of Cleveland, Ohio, where she loves to forage, hike and cook.
Best Food Styling Commercial 2nd Place
I pride myself on having a well rounded background in food. I started out as an artist, but as so many do, found myself working for Restaurants and Caterers. In the early days of Food Television, I stumbled upon Food Network (Television Food Network, TVFN in those days) and it was such a good fit for all my skills, both cooking and visual arts. I’ve styled for many books and periodicals, as well as thousands of food segments for Network and Cable TV.
