About Simi Jois

Simi Jois started her career as a  marketing and branding professional but found her calling in culinary photography. She has always been intrigued by light. Whether it is rays of sunlight streaming into a forest or the gentle light of hope cast by a clay lamp in the midst of darkness or the highlights that accentuate the petals of a newly unfurled rose.

Raised in an artistically inclined home subconsciously trained her mind to engage creatively with color, texture, light, shadow and composition. Simi uses photographic images as her canvas and the lens as her brush. She did not have to look far for a subject – her passion for creating flavors provided her with infinite permutations of expression. Painting with ingredients, pairing exotic spices for mutual enhancement and richness of flavor, Simi narrates her stories through the play of light and bold strokes of color. She also found similar success working with the natural world and tapped into the extraordinary beauty that lay beyond our ordinary lives.

Simi believes that her love for creating unique flavors deeply informs her passion for culinary optics. Her work has been featured on MSN ( food & drink), Fox News magazine, Better Homes, theKitchn, Smart Photography Magazine, Artful Blogging magazine (Stampington & Company), The Hindu Newspaper to name a few.
