Xavier D. Buendia
Food Photographer Brighton-London

Hi, I'm Xavier

My background is a beautiful mix of Mexican and Spanish cultures. I grew up going back and forth between the two countries with lots of traveling in between mostly around Europe because of my parents' business. That gave the chance to taste all sorts of food from such an early age and develope an interest in different cultures and ways of cooking.

That early interest in food, led to a long career in the catering industry first as a chef while studying Food and Beverage Management and then as a sommelier. After finishing my studies I embarked in an adventure working in grand luxury hotels, starred restaurants and private dining rooms across Europe and North America. 

Did I mention I always carried a camera with me? Photography has been my life long passion so it was an easy choice to turn that passion into a business; Now I spend my time photographing food, chefs, sommeliers, restaurants, drinks and brands. This has made me win a few awards and my work has been published in several national and international editorials. 

My style focuses on the food and the people preparing it, my ultimate goal is to make people hungry.

If you have a project in mind, I'd love to hear about it and work with you! Get in touch
