Upton’s Naturals Seitan Photos

Upton’s Naturals Seitan Photos

Just in time for lunch: a food photography post! Over the past couple of months, I’ve been doing some recipe development and food photography for Upton’s Naturals, a meat alternative company based here in Chicago. The West Town factory manufactures a line of seitan, recently opened a restaurant, and just launched a line of jackfruit. I’ve been posting a teaser shots of some of the recipes on Instagram, and am excited to share some of the final photos!

All of the seitan photos and recipes are finished, so here are some of my favorite photos. Keeping the Upton’s style in mind, I made photos with a minimal, modern look, adding a touch of texture with wood grain, scattered garnish, or a bold accent piece. The links above some of the photos will take you to recipes. You can find other recipes over on Upton’s recipe page.
