Are you interesting in partnering with me? Depending on the opportunity, I may be interested too!
To put it simply, I like food, booze, photos, events, and dining out in Charleston, and am generally open to any sort of opportunity that falls squarely in one of those categories.
To be more specific…
I. love. trying. new. things. Do you have an amazing new food item you’d like me to try? Is it all natural or organic? Then I’m probably in. I love everything from olive oil to spices to bacon. If your ingredient falls more under the category of “Premade Food” (think premade cheesecake) than “Ingredient” (cocktail mixer, olive oil, spices, etc), I may be less likely to be interested. Due to the volume of requests I receive, I am not able to work only for product, but I’ll be happy to send you my rate sheet!
I almost never review a restaurant until I have visited three times, on my own. I will happily cover private tastings and events on social media, but an official review is ALWAYS an aggregate of multiple visits where I slipped in with no warning to the establishment AND I paid for myself, even if the photos I use might have been taken by me during a PR visit.
If I have reviewed your establishment in the past, and you were not happy with my experience ( most likely because I was not happy with my experience ), please feel free to reach out to me through my contact page.
If I am available, I’d love to join you at your event! I’ll post while at the event on Instagram, but generally will not do a blog post about it unless we explicitly discuss that.
Do you need some gorgeous photos for your website, social media, or other promotional items? I love taking photos of food, and if you are a restaurant or food truck in the Charleston area, I’d love to work with you! Have a look at my Instagram account ( @basilandbubbly) and the photos from my restaurant reviews for an example of my work.
Please send all inquiries through the form on my contact page or directly to my email at basilandbubbly at gmail dot com. I look forward to hearing from you!
