hello! my name is mica


I believe that food photography requires an inquisitive palate and a profound love of color. In my role as a Food Photographer, I aspire to live up to this notion by exploring the color theory, traveling wherever and whenever I can, cooking recipes from different cuisines and fostering my passion projects.


I come from the theatre world, so I am passionate about producing dramatic, vibrant, and vivid images.


My mission is to help restaurants and food brands stand out from the competition by taking expressive photos that elevate their online presence and tell the story behind their dish.
