about

kyle dreier

My dad spent three years in Malawi (Africa) with a Yashica Mat camera. I wish I had a story like his. Me? I grew up in the kitchen. On a good day I can bake a mean cheesecake. I can eat one on any day. I enjoy the particular challenges food photography presents and working with a team of stylists, assistants and art directors to make magic together. While I enjoy the comforts here at the studio, I also appreciate the added elements of surprise we encounter when out on location. Enough about me, what’s your story?

Flying in? 
We are only seven miles from Nashville International Airport (BNA), and 6 blocks from lower Broadway…in case you'd like to catch some live music or just do some people watching. You’ll find Nashville an easy city to navigate. We like to say it has “small town feel with big city amenities." Here are some helpful recommendations for planning your trip to Nashville.

Virtual Art Direction? 
When travel isn't conducive, you can sit at your computer and “be on set” remotely. Thanks to advanced photography technology and video conferencing, you can art direct in real time and stay right where you are on shoot day.
