Photography: Paolo Feliciano and Toto Labrador Pictorial Direction: Nat M. Clave

Mylene Chung’s love of food isn’t about whipping gourmet dishes; it’s actually all about styling and capturing them in photographs. “Basically, I started way back as a general photographer lang, and then gradually, I decided to specialize in food photography,” says Mylene. “So when I had my first food client, which was Red Mango, that was when I realized I wanted to focus on food lang.”

Mylene styles props and shoots food for a number of clients, including Nestlé and Maggi. She also does restaurant work for Wrong Ramen, which she co-owns with three other partners. “Wrong Ramen was actually a vision of our team. We wanted to have a ramen place that’s not really the authentic kind. We wanted to play with ramen a bit, that’s why we have different kinds of it,” Mylene explains. Aside from these, Mylene and her partners are also busy with projects for their food blog pepper.ph.
