Tales of taste and vision - finding a sanctuary for heart & business

I explored various creative pursuits from playful handicrafts with mom to helping grandma in the kitchen - and 25 years later, with a love for gastronomy and a pinch of art, I've turned my passion into a profession.


While living an ex-pat life unanchored, food always remained my true north - a compass of creativity, adventure, and heritage! During these years I've learned to embrace traditions while adapting to new environments and expanding my culinary horizons. I sailed across Europe in pursuit of a haven to call my own and I found my anchor in Finland - a sanctuary for both heart and business, where dreams take root and flourish.


This is how I became the proud founder of Three Pod Studio. Whether I'm working remotely from the studio or travelling to a location, I deliver exceptional results, paying attention to fine details and ensuring a clear and friendly workflow that serves my renowned international clientele.


Join me on this journey where imagination knows no boundaries, and let's create something magical together!


Kind regards,

Reka Csulak

What I do

Photographer

FEAST FOR THE EYES



In addition to composing the shots, as a photographer I also pay attention to lighting, angles, and presentation to highlight and preserve the hero's best features so you feel compelled to reach for them right away. Thanks to my award-winning vision and advanced post-processing skills I can enhance the final visuals and deliver high-quality, enticing results that effectively promote and showcase the food and products.

Food Stylist

MAKEUP ARTISTRY ON A PLATE


Presenting food to the camera differs from serving it to guests at the table. I craft and select the perfect elements to showcase the hero of an image while preserving its best appearance during the photo session. Setting up the scene with carefully chosen colours, textures, and complementary props is also my responsibility a food stylist, so the final image perfectly conveys the desired feel and mood in harmony with the brand's message.

Recipe Developer

FOOD IS OUR COMMON LANGUAGE


Food connects art, science, innovation, and diverse cultures as a powerful link. Crafting new recipes that delight all the senses allows me to express boundless creativity beyond words. By developing recipes for my blog, magazines and clients, I unite people from various backgrounds through their shared passion for preparing and savouring delectable dishes.

Mentor

EMPOWERING GUIDANCE


Through a continuous journey of self-learning and exploring diverse educational paths in photography, food styling, and business management, I've expanded my technical skills, discovered my own signature style and fine-tuned my creative processes. Now it's my turn to share the experience I've gathered over the years with fellow creators, by planting the seeds of knowledge in their hearts, nurturing their growth, and empowering them to flourish in their own artistry.
