This Chicago food stylist comes armed with groceries

Chicago-based food and prop stylist Johanna Lowe rarely goes to a photo shoot without her kit of kitchen supplies.

It’s full of knives, scissors and measuring cups, — expected tools for the trade. But then there’s the electric paint stripper, for melting cheese or browning, and the cat syringe, which she uses to create tiny water drops on fruit.


Lowe’s job is to make food being photographed — be it for ads, magazines, websites or books — look beautiful. That involves cooking, baking and prepping the food and, of course, always being ready for any culinary twists.

“The job of food styling is 90 percent problem-solving,” she said. “Creativity and talent is one thing, but also thinking on your feet and coming up with solutions quickly is crucial.”
