About Me

Hi everyone, my name is Gilbert Yap. I am a software engineer in Boston, Massachusetts interested in exploring the world of food photography to help local businesses connect with the diverse, food-loving Boston community.

My photo journey began in highschool, where I covered school events for yearbook club. My camera and a half busted lens went with me everywhere. I moved to Boston for college in 2013 and photography remained a constant throughout the years. Starting my sophomore year of college I started to document my journey as a home cook. To this day, I still do. The eye truly does eat first! Today, I work with food businesses in Boston, Cambridge, Somerville, and beyond!

I hope that you enjoy the photos I have taken for both professional and personal projects. If you're interested in my services as a freelance food photographer, please feel free to find my contact information in the "Contact Me" page.
