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 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, or you can learn a bit more here.

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.


Feel free to fill in the contact form below if you'd like more information or to schedule a food shoot. You can also e-mail me at hello@thefoodshutterbug.com.
