I’m excited about Dried and True, a cookbook that I photographed entirely on a light table with very few props. Styling by Randy Mon with assistant styling by Penny Flood. Can’t wait to post some photos from it!
I’m always excited to do something creative that I haven’t done yet like making vegetable wallpaper! Little Spoon Organic Baby Food wanted me to make some of their flavors into a graphic banners. Yes! I like it and I like their products–they use high pressure instead of heat to preserve their product. It looks and tastes way better than anything you find in a jar and then they go a step further by making some tasty flavor combos. I think the moms are eating it….
I like to help launch small businesses and Tia Maka’s Tamales was a fun project. Sandra Jimenez has always made tamales for friends and wanted to start a new business. I helped her with photography by emphasizing the homemade quality of her food, the ingredients, the sauces and the deliciousness. I’d like one now, please.
Peerless Coffee is one of Oakland’s oldest coffee roasting company, a family run business started by John Vukasin in 1920. Besides making incredible coffee, the company has a collection of museum quality coffee artifacts, many still in use. It’s always interesting to have authentic artisan elements to work with and to see one of the photos made into a modern poster is pretty cool too!
