Toronto-based Imported Artists has signed Los Angeles director Claire Thomas to their roster for exclusive Canadian representation.
Best known for her tabletop work, which has been featured on her epicurean blog, "The Kitchy Kitchen", Claire Thomas - whose culinary photography has appeared on such outlets as Zagat, The Huffington Post, Refinery 29 and PopSugar - recently began shooting commercials through Green Dot Films debuting with a campaign for McDonald's out of DDB Chicago.
Her new daytime show, Food ForThought with Claire Thomas airs on ABC affiliate stations on the weekends and explores food as a lifestyle, introducing audiences to foods from varied cultures and sharing info such as ways to grow healthy produce within one's own community.
Thomas has generated a following through her aforementioned blog which features "30 Second Recipe" videos that present cinematic images, representing a departure from the more standard "how-to" depictions for food preparation and cooking. Of her immersion into food couture Thomas has noted that an "incurable curiosity about food has pushed me to taste, create and study anything and everything. I work as a food stylist, photographer, filmmaker and writer using my blog as an experimental playground."
Thomas has also recently delved into the fashion world shooting a series of lookbook promos for jewelry/fashion brand Luv AJ featuring high speed photography shot on the Phantom HD camera.
