Growing up in a meat market on the north side of Chicago, Brendan Lekan watched butchers cut fresh quality meat for the particular customer. His love of photography was formed with the knowledge of food, which was learned at an early age. In the studio and on location he uses his skill to combine light, color and composition to create images that hold the products in their highest regard. Brendan currently resides in Houston, Texas working with Ralph Smith Photography. Some of Brendan's clients include Nestle Foods, Kraft Foods, and The Food Network.
