About Monica Jiandani
I am a Manila based food photographer with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Hotel & Restaurant Management. After completing my degree, I trained to be a CIW certified Graphic & Web Designer in London. Shortly after, I re-directed my career to my true passion which was, food and photography.
Having a thorough knowledge of culinary techniques and principles, as well as a love and deep understanding of food and how it behaves, has proven to be a great advantage as a food photographer.
I enjoy trying new ingredients and cuisines, and learning the traditions behind them. This often sparks the creative process for me.
With the use of light and props, my images aim to tell an authentic global culinary narrative in a modernised and relatable fashion.
Although I am based in Manila, international collaborations are welcome.
