Hello! I'm Spencer Plum.
I'm a professional food photographer living in Saint Charles, IL. I am available to shoot in the Chicago-land area or anywhere the job will take me!
I received my degree in photography from Western Colorado University. When I graduated from college I worked various jobs that have helped me get to where I am now.
In my early career, I worked as a customer service representative and product photographer for a high-end camera equipment manufacture. After that I became a private flight attendant, flying and cooking for elite clientèle on private jets.
Both careers were rewarding and helped me to develop better photography and culinary skills which have been key in the creation of Spencer Plum Photography.
The majority of my photography is done with artificial light, that being said, if there is a window with beautiful light streaming through the photographer in me can't pass up that opportunity.
In my free time, I try to get outdoors and spend as much time with my family as possible. Hiking, camping, and canoeing with my fiance and my daughter are my favorite ways to spend a free day. We love the National Parks and visit them as often as we can. Naturally, with my love for photography and the outdoors, I have a rather large collection of Landscape, Nightscape, and National Park photographs!
