ShootersINC has welcomed Food Director/DP John Romeo to the company’s diverse Directorial roster. Romeo joins ShootersINC’s production division, which also features the talents of Directors Robert Adamo, Kris Magyarits, Rob Markopoulos, Ira Rosensweig, and Scott Whitham.
ShootersINC Executive Producer Jim Huie, who also collaborates with EPs Cris Andrei and Carolyn Jefferson on the company’s Production Division, notes: “Since the advent of our Directorial roster last year, we’ve been seeking a Food Director whom we feel will make an impact in that highly competitive and specialized niche of the industry. We knew we needed something a bit different in order to achieve this, and I’m delighted that we’ve found that in Director/DP John Romeo and his Food Stylist partner Nir Adar."
"The two have partnered together for over 10 years in the equally competitive market of Still Food Photography. John has quietly developed what I find to be a groundbreaking body of work that is the derivative of several national stills projects, which also yielded motion picture components. There’s a very specific style that is immediately evident to the viewer. It’s not pristine or overly produced. John’s filmmaking style makes food more natural, approachable and intimate. That results in an almost tantalizing experience for the viewer in a way that makes you want to reach out and taste it!”
Romeo works exclusively with Nir Adar, acclaimed Food Stylist, Chef and Artist. “I’ve been working with John now for a decade,” explains Adar. “It’s been very exciting to work together with him through his transition to motion. Over the years, we have developed a close relation on- and off-set, which helps us collaborate on-set at times using no words. John is tremendously embracing of my culinary craft and allows me to do my thing in a supportive way. He empowers me to put all of my love into the food, while he captures the magic moments through his camera. John has a great eye for details and a love for perfection, which makes both of us and the clients happy.”
For Director/DP John Romeo, joining ShootersINC is an opportunity to take his work in motion to a next level. “I’m really excited about the opportunities that Shooters can offer me as a Director, locally here on the east coast, but also nationally. I made the foray into motion a few years ago, and this is just a next step in the development of my career, to sign with a production company that can share my work with new clients."view more - Hires, Wins & Business
