Milena Ugrinova - Mim portrait

Hey there, nice to meet you.

My name is Milena, but my friends call me Mim. I am a food and product photographer based in Reading, Berkshire, UK, a stone's throw from the centre of London.

I am passionate about creating food for the eyes. With a bachelor's degree in Photography and a background in Graphic Design, I know how to create mouth-watering visuals and use them.

My clients are agencies, established brands, startups, and hospitality venues with a variety of products and services. I photograph all types of freshly prepared food, packet snacks and ingredients, desserts, beverages, and non-edible products in a fun creative way.

I capture the colours, ingredients, textures and juices, that explode into flavours.

Let's talk about your unique story and how to turn it into photographs.

“You don't take a photograph, you make it.”

Ansel Adams

I'm incredibly proud my photograph has been shortlisted at the Pink Lady® Food Photographer of the Year 2022 in the Marks & Spencer Food Portraiture category.

See it on the Pink Lady website.
