Sounds like a good idea to me. Having a pro do the pix should give you better consistency in quality ... and taking 'good' pictures of food is a _very_ specialized skill. It also sets a more upscale tone. His gallery looks very nice. This guy looks like a pro to me. I'm seeing a very strong sense of composition. Virtually every picture has a strong diagonal element. (That's a good thing.) Excellent color coordination with the tablecloth/background selection as well. Looks like he's done this before. ;-) The food is well presented and if there _is_ any 'retouching' - it sure isn't immediately obvious. If he's affordable and this is representative of his work, he looks like a good choice. These photos will be on the 'take-away' menu you'll be sending out to us, right? Free delivery within a 4,000 mile radius???? Hmmmm??? RonL.
