Laurel Ziemienski

As a food stylist with over 20 years of experience in the photo and video world, a keen eye for beauty, harmony and mouthwatering goodness is what fuels my creativity on a daily basis. Cooking has been in my blood since I was born, my insatiable curiosity for food and the endless combination of ingredients is what led me to the rewarding world of food styling. I work on local and national projects ranging from TV commercials and cooking shows to print advertising and editorial projects. My previous freelance work as a model and wardrobe stylist has helped me develop a well rounded career, providing clients with multiple services which also include on camera roles and prop styling. I love my job and am grateful to have turned a passion into a career.

Best Food Styling Editorial Honorable Mentions

Lisa Golden Schroeder

As a well-seasoned food stylist, I made the tricky transition from working in the analog world of commercial photography to embracing the magic of digital (I won't share how many years that's been.) My background is in food science and journalism, with a classic culinary education in France. I've worked in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area for most of my career--a longtime hub of creatively effective commercial and editorial food work. It's been a place where I've had generous autonomy to really develop my personal style and collaborate with truly talented designers and photographers. I'm deeply interested in understanding the stories behind food cultures and am inspired by people and places I've been, including in my own backyard. Which drove the founding of my blog,, that I write with food shooter Dennis Becker (the one who captured this photo, which will be in an upcoming blog post.) He & I also co-authored an award-winning book, "Untamed Mushrooms: From Field to Table" (it was a finalist for best cookbook photography & styling this year at IACP.) I was able to stretch my usual work boundaries & make the most of my writing, recipe, and styling skills in one huge project--daunting, but an extraordinary, creative journey with pros I really admire. This shot epitomizes the ultimate goal of a successful food image: it captures the most elemental aspects of appetite appeal.
