What do you do? I shoot food. I shoot chefs. I shoot anything related to the hospitality industry.
Why did you get into photography? I had a darkroom epiphany.
Education: Zone System (Google it), 4x5 sheet film (Google it), Polaroid (It's coming back), the real world, BFA in Photography, assisted for years. Life.
Favorite Restaurant: One that pays their invoices. For actual recommendations for food, see Extra Info.
Guests at last supper: Anyone who can cook, oh, and Betty Crocker. She must have been hot back in the day.
Craziest shoot: In-N-Out Burger editorial shoot, hands down!
Are you a foodie? I eat. I enjoy life. Therefore, I like to enjoy what I eat. I don't find my identity in any other word other than photographer.
Favorite sandwich: Go see Vivian on Isla Mujeres at Cubano. Best. Cuban sandwich. Ever.
Clients: Yes, I like them and have them. I have recently enjoyed working with one of my favorites on a Best New Restaurants editorial piece and another on a Dining Guide Cover. I am currently helping some other friends rebrand a national Italian restaurant chain as well as updating a BBQ restaurant's imagery.
