LOU & Co

Lou & Co is the team that helps you reveal your restaurant to the world. Our work is all about helping you, customer-centric restaurateur, in different areas related to photography.

The founder Louis Hansel was 15 years old, when he was in front of the TV changing channels. It was Sunday morning.

Until he came across a documentary showing the reality of a mother in an underdeveloped country preparing cookies made of clay, water, and salt to feed her family and others. Well, his meals and life after that day were never the same again.

In one street market in North Africa 13 years after that Sunday morning, everything came together. The passion for combining photography with excellent restaurants and a meaningful mission was born.

Restaurant Photography

"Yes, you can do what we do."

It was our answer when a restaurant owner in Belgium asked us if he could take the same photos for his restaurant.

We have questions like this one sometimes, and to be honest, we love them. It makes us think about what's our position on being a professional photographer for restaurants. Help YOU with our experience.

The gentleman in Belgium smiled a bit and asked another question after a few seconds:
