My experience with Diana Draper has been excellent. Both as a food artisan and stylist, and as a knowledgeable person on the set, Diana is an excellent collaborator and crewmember. She understands and respects set protocol and her experience shows in her attitude and can-do-it spirit.
I have found Diana to be a professional who understands her craft and is a giving and caring person who contributes to the overall outcome of the production in many ways – both obvious and subtle.
I am pleased to recommend Diana Draper as a Food Stylist and Artist to any producer or production entity seeking a professional and personable addition to their team.
Diana is extremely talented, experienced and speedy. She has an eye for detail and works with her clients to achieve their desired results.
We needed someone with very good experience that has the ability to express food in a very creative way. Our digital menu board project called for food that had to be displayed in one of the largest airports in the country. We hired Diana Draper to be our Food Stylist and consultant for our Photos and Promotional Advertising for the opening of Press Coffee Food and Wine in Sky Harbor International Airport.
While watching Diana work, her passion for creativity was very obvious to us. She has the ability to express any type of mood. She loves what she does! She has years of experience and it shows with her professionalism and eye for style and color. She take care of any request or modifications to the food and always with a smile. We had a very long day of shooting and her stamina and patience where great in pulling off as many shots as we needed.
Diana made up several different things ahead of time that she brought to the shoot. She added them to our food or painted them onto the food. It greatly improved the look, color and texture and helped them last a lot longer under the hot lights
During our shoot Diana had a very good eye for detail as she watched every frame and pointed out many things that we even missed that helped improve our overall shot. She gives more than you ask for and at the same time is very professional in how she does it.
To sum it up Diana is a real pro and has the best attitude and sense of humor along with her complete understanding on how to prepare and style our food. That is why we look forward to upcoming shoots with her because we know that we can rest assured that everything will look marvelous.
Diana, I wanted to send you a note to tell you what an AWESOME job you did for us yesterday. The props/flowers etc. were exceptional, and I was especially pleased with how fast you work and your rapport with the client/chefs. Thanks SO much again.
Thanks again, I will highly recommend you to all….
For over 5 years our company has relied Diana Draper to create beautiful food sets. We have food and nutrition broadcast series and DIana’s expertise as a food stylist and set designer has helped to make our meals and sets look picture-perfect. She always goes the extra mile to make our dishes and table display look flawless. Diana’s knowledge of food and her eye for color and detail make her an invaluable asset to our production team.
Diana approaches every project creatively, handles pre-production thoroughly, and styles every shot skillfully. She brings resourcefulness and enthusiasm to the set, every time. Her passion to exceed every client’s expectations makes her an invaluable member of my crew.
I had the sincere pleasure of working with Diana while we were in Arizona during our book tour for The Romney Family Table (October 2013). We needed a stylist for a cooking demo on Sonoran Living and I am so glad Diana was available to help. She is creative, professional, detail-oriented, extremely talented, and an absolute pleasure to work with. The thing I appreciated most about working with Diana is that once I turned the project over to her I didn’t have to worry about a thing! She had everything covered and planned down to the most minute detail – it was such a relief! I look forward to working with her again on many projects.
We had the pleasure of working with Diana Draper on our breakfast cookbook “50 Ways to ROCK Breakfast.” Her artistic vision and attention to detail are fantastic. Her Food Styling turned our delicious and nutritious recipes into mouth-watering photographs. We’re thrilled we found Diana and look forward to working with her again
