Brooke Lark hails from a 100-year old studio in the heart of Salt Lake City. A professional food photographer and videographer, she is the author of 10+ cookbooks whose work appears in digital and paper magazines around the globe.
Brooke Lark has been a professional food photographer and videographer since 2006. Her client list includes General Mills, Disney, World Kitchen, Int’l Housewares Association, kitchenware giant GoodCook, NYTimes Bestselling nutritionist YuriElkaim.com, FitMenCook, Simple Green Smoothies, and NatureNates.com.
Brooke’s Food Photography and Videography FB Group has grown to be one of the largest gatherings of food creators in the industry, with more than 5000+ members and growing.
And early contributor to Unsplash (the very idea of generously giving away her photography struck a chord and she was immediately hooked), Brooke’s photos have been viewed and downloaded millions of times monthly. Work uploaded to her food blog is free to download, use and share but Brooke also customizes shoots for clients and their brands.
When not playing with food or launching new businesses, Brooke is likely out with her witty teens, escaping to the canyons on mountain bike or chasing her vaguely naughty puppy around the neighborhood.
