About Jennifer May

I am a photographer based in New York’s Hudson Valley and Brooklyn. I have photographed over 25 cookbooks for publishers such as Clarkson Potter, Ten Speed Press, Rodale, Knopf, and the Culinary Institute of America. I have been published in Food + Wine; Bon Appetit; and The New York Times.

I have worked on advertising campaigns for a vegetable (Andy Boy’s broccoli rabe), for meat (Fleisher’s & The Applestone Meat Company), for lines of gourmet sauces (Marie’s Salad Dressings, Maya Kaimal Fine Indian Foods & Sabra). I have created photographs for rebranding campaigns for canned fish (Chicken of the Sea) and for sandwiches (Arby’s). I provide visual content for social media (Maille, Triscuit).

In early 2019, I opened my brand new kitchen photo studio in the Hudson Valley. It has been about a year in the making – from taking down the trees, to hooking up the gas for the stove. It is a stand-alone building on my property in Woodstock. It includes a collection of props and surfaces I have collected over the years (always growing). I work alone, or I can bring in a team of food and prop stylists – it all depends on what the project demands. I will post photos of the new building soon!
