Success C r e at i v e
An award-winning food stylist who’s worked with
some of the finest restaurants in the country,
top chefs call Kelly Sterling when they want their
food to look every bit as good as it tastes.
TEX T BY RYAN JARRELL
Reared in the innovative culinary climes of Northern California,
the daughter of a pastry chef and successful restaurateur, it’s
little wonder that the professional future of Photographer
& Food Stylist Kelly Sterling was guided primarily by a love
and appreciation for fine foods. Working with such celebrated
conglomerates as Google, Coca-Cola and Southern Living, and
counting some of the hottest restaurants in the country as
clients, Sterling brings a consummately clean and deeply personal
aesthetic to each of her shoots. Living, loving and working in
South Florida for the last 8 years, Sterling complements her keen
eye with professional chef training. With a globe’s worth of plates
for her to capture, what are some of her favorites? “The odder, the
better,” she says. “Ingredients like sea urchin and raw whole fish
always photograph beautifully.”; KellySterling.com.
