Huge Galdones

Born and raised in Montreal, Huge currently resides in Chicago, IL and can frequently be found shooting (and eating) in some of the city's best restaurants or on assignment all over the globe. A veteran of the food and beverage industry, Huge is known for his creative genius on the job and his lasting relationships with top chefs and restaurateurs. Look for him wherever good food is made by passionate people.

Huge’s work has earned him a host of happy clients and friends, including FOOD & WINE, Bon Appetit, The James Beard Foundation, and The Food Group. He has shot multiple cookbooks, including Gather and Graze by James Beard winner Chef Stephanie Izard (Clarkson Potter, 2018) and Homegrown by Chef Matt Jennings (Artisan Books, 2017). Devoted to giving back,  Huge shares his talents with many food-driven nonprofits including Share Our Strength.

When not behind the camera, Huge is constantly working on his golf swing and cooks for his family, including two discriminating kids, Callan and Nora.

what they say

I’ve known Huge for many years and have always considered him an expert within the culinary industry. From shooting award-winning cookbooks for some of the best chefs of our time to large scale food and wine events, Huge does it all with professionalism and a sense of calm. His photographs from events we’ve done over the years are some of my favorite. He would be an asset to any project, large or small.

Working with Huge is a pleasure. Collaborative, creative, responsive, and lovely to be on set with—that’s Huge.
— Judy Pray (Executive Editor, Artisan Books)
Huge and his photography are part of the fabric of the Chicago dining scene. His photographs, much like the man himself are fun, innovative, colorful, and tell a compelling story.
— Kevin Boehm (Partner, BOKA Restaurant Group)
Huge has an incredible ability to tap into the DNA of your brand and capture it with his photos. He has an incredible way about him and instantly feels like family.
