As a food and prop stylist for a variety of editorial and advertising clients, Adam Pearson fell into food styling quite organically – if not by accident. A stint in culinary school brought a self-realization to Adam. “I began to think the restaurant world after culinary school wasn’t for me – I didn’t smoke or drink enough,” he says with a touch of humor and unflappable honesty. While trying to map out a life of food that existed outside the stressful working environment of restaurants, Adam began cooking and styling food for his partner’s foodblog mattbites.com. His work garnered attention, earning him apprenticing positions with established stylists until he was ready to go it alone. Adam has styled numerous cookbooks as well as for national advertising clients like Chiquita Banana, Food Network, Whole Foods Market, La Brea Bakery, Kohl’s Department Store and Post Cereal.
Although not a blogger himself, Adam is very active and visible within the blogging community and speaks and teaches food styling workshops internationally.
He lives in Los Angeles with his partner Matt Armendariz and their three dogs.
