IT'S RICHARD JUNG FOR CHUCK STUDIOS.
2 March 2021

Renowned food director and photographer Richard Jung has joined Chuck Studios for commercial representation.

Thirteen months after the launch of their London office, executive producer Pete Ryan is keen to establish Chuck as the place "where food goes to get famous". Doubtless New York-born Jung will play a key role in his efforts.

Ryan says: "Richard shoots 'food you can taste' and really understands the subject matter. I'm incredibly pleased he's coming onboard. Richard's vision and attention to detail makes him a perfect match for us and we're excited to have him as part of the London team."


Jung brings an accomplished reel to his new home, with Ryan and co. drawn to his meticulous filming style and ability to blend macro, high-speed and stop motion photography. Chuck Studios now aim to share Jung's "classically appetising" approach with discerning clients.

Brands including Waitrose, Quorn, and Kikkoman have all benefited from the Jung's love of food so far, with demand for the New Yorker's services expected to grow. Stay tuned for his and Chuck Studios's first serving.


To discuss Richard Jung and all things Chuck Studios, ring Pete Ryan on 020 7267 5000 or email pete@chuckstudios.com.
