6. Steinmetz Photography
Steinmetz Photography is an enormous outfit of multiple photographers based in West Springfield. They have a massive body of work, including food and commercial photography, senior portraits, professional headshots, and weddings. While their work is quite varied, that’s not to say they don’t offer top-notch services – because they do. Unsurprisingly, Steinmetz Photography is available by appointment only.
While Steinmetz’s chops (in food photography terms) aren’t as stellar as others on this list, they’ve done quite a bit of good work for local restaurants and brands. They keep things local rather than opting to aim for editorial or publication food photography, and that’s okay. If you need a local’s touch (and a keen eye for detail), Steinmetz Photography will likely be your best bet to highlight that mouthwatering dish or delicious drink.
