With a background in photography and working as a chef in several restaurants, Sander decided to combine the two and specialised himself as a food stylist.
"What's fascinating about this profession is that it's never good enough and that there are always techniques that could be improved or adjusted to get an even better result. Every assignment needs another approach. That in combination with photography and film makes it very inspiring and never boring."
Sander is fascinated by structures and he uses them to give each ingredient its own character. Structures are important in photography but also in film and most certainly in high-speed film. They can just give it that little bit extra; the bending of a leave of lettuce, crumbs that fall loss from a falling crostini, the bouncing of a falling piece of tomato....
Over the years Sander has specialised in the imaging of:
- Meat & fish
- Liquids such as sauces, all kinds of coffee, beer, soup and cocktails
- Dripping technique
- Ice-cream, both dummy as well as real ice
