Murielle Banackissa

Hello, welcome
to my little corner
of the internet!

My name is Murielle Banackissa. I am a Montreal-based food photographer, food stylist, and recipe developer.

I have been in this industry for over 7 years now, working with dozens of Canadian and American brands ranging in sizes including Lindt, Silk, Cha’s Organics, Activia, So Delicious, Belvedere Vodka, CoolWay, and USA Pears.

What my years in business have shown me is how difficult it can be for companies to find, hire, and manage multiple skilled and professional individuals for their campaigns or product launches (from recipe developers, cooks, assistants, stylists, photographers, retouchers, and more!). I also understand the struggles companies face when it comes to communicating, through imagery and digital content, what their brand stands for and represents.

You do not have to do it all on your own.

By working together, I can offer you a package deal that is tailored to your specific needs. With my experience and knowledge in food styling, food photography, and recipe development, I can help you create eye-catching and mouth watering imagery and recipes that stand out and reflect your brand’s aesthetic, values, and identity. This in turn will help capture your audience’s interest and result in increased traffic, engagement, sales, and an enhanced brand image.



Recipe Development

Do you have a product you want me to include in a vegan recipe? I can do that for you! I have created over 200 plant based and flavor-packed recipes for dozens of clients. Whether you sell vegan butter, gluten-free flour, nuts and seeds, wine, chocolate or even fruits and vegetables, my experience in the kitchen will allow me to create recipes that highlight the deliciousness of your product, while giving your audience ideas on how to use it.

Prop & Food Styling

With my years of experience working on set for brands such as Target, Silk, Lindt, and many more, I have the expertise to style scenes in a way that showcases the products featured, while creating a mood that will grab the attention of your audience. I have an extensive prop collection that I can turn to for styling scenes, but if you have any particular demands for a shoot, I know all the best places to get what you are looking for.

Food Photography

From shooting close up food textures, to prepared dishes, and large table spreads, my goal through my photography is to celebrate food. I believe that I achieve that by highlighting its vibrant colors and distinctive textures as well as by creating a mood that is inviting and will in turn push your audience into action, whether it be to buy your product, try your service or experiment with a new recipe.

Lifestyle Photography

Looking to incorporate a human touch to your photos? I can do it by stepping myself in front of the camera or by hiring models.

Influencer Collaborations

Are you launching a new product or a campaign that aims at raising awareness about your offerings? I can use my Instagram presence to help you do just that through static posts, carousels, stories, reels, lives, and more. Through our collaboration, I can also create recipes featuring your product or service as well as shoot and style photos, while infusing my personality through every post.
