Hi! I'm Athira Krishnan.


Thanks for coming by! I'm a commercial and editorial food photographer based in Dubai, having also worked on photography projects across Southern Africa.


My journey into food photography began in 2015, in a small Italian restaurant in the heart of old Dubai. Skip to several years later, I made the shift from a corporate job to fulfil my passionate and creative side, as a full-time food photographer, with an expertise in social media marketing. 


Most of my photographs are shot using artificial light, although I'm comfortable working with natural light as well. Feel free to take a look at my portfolio if you haven't already for more insight, be it food and drink or product photography.

Some of my clients that I have worked with include:

Accor Hotel Group, Mövenpick  Hotels and Resorts, Domino's Pizza, Modern Bakery, Balqees, Bonny, and more. 

Having grown up in Malawi - a small country in Africa - I find myself leaning towards a quieter lifestyle, and in my spare time I love reading and when I can, scuba diving too.
