Noel Barnhurst has been a photographer for 4 decades and 30 of those years in the San Francisco Bay Area. Noel has shot food exclusively for the last 15 years. The Bay Area’s constant devotion to the innovation and culture of food is what has kept him inspired there.


Noel’s photography balances the contrast between realistic compositions and intentional lighting. Even after 4 decades of working with the photographic medium he still regards it as a subject he can continually expand his knowledge and tighten his craft. 


Noel’s crew is comprised of a production team, 2 digital retouchers, on-set assistants and a roster of talented food and prop stylists to choose from.
