Brendan Lekan

A photographer takes a photo

Growing up in his family’s storied butcher shop,on Chicago’s north side, Brendan Lekan developed a deep appreciation for the beauty of food.


His experiences there then led him to a commercial food photography studio, where he began his career in professional photography over twenty years ago. An avid fisherman and outdoor enthusiast, Brendan’s inspiration comes from the majesty of nature – particularly its natural light, color, and rhythm. Outside of shooting food and fish, Brendan currently tends to his urban homestead in Houston where he’s raising chickens and growing vegetables.
