Last month I worked with Wagstaff Worldwide photographing the opening of two new True Food Kitchen restaurants in Palo Alto and Walnut Creek. The healthy food chain is owned by Fox Restaurant Concepts in partnership with Dr. Andrew Weil and has healthy, interesting food that I loved. I’m hoping they’ll come to San Francisco soon.
Senor Sisig tacos are a phenomenon in the bay area. I shot their spicy pork belly taco recipe for a Got Milk? editorial campaign earlier this year. (full disclosure: I added their logo to my photo above)
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.
Sierra Magazine featured four urban farmers from my book Backyard Roots for their annual Food issue! Above, Jonathan Chen, became the director of the Danny Woo Community Garden in Seattle after surviving cancer as a college student. He worked with immigrants in the terraced downtown garden and introduced a kids program and chickens. Other urban farmers included Alex Winstead, an organic mushroom farmer who began his career as a hobby growing mushrooms in his basement, Rachel Hoff and Tom Ferguson who lived for a year without setting foot in a grocery store and Lee Kindell who introduced kids to aquaponics at his downtown hostel. Check it out at the sierra club.org.
Apropos Promotions makes high quality promotions for top companies and I was excited to work on photographs for their new website. I worked closely with owner Ann Wilber and we created banner layouts that showcased their beautiful work. Here are a few favorites:
I worked for the San Francisco Chronicle for the first time earlier this month photographing Chef Stephen Barber of Farmstead in St Helena. Barber, who has loved barbecue since he was a boy, shares his tips an a recipe for a spicy rib rub here. YUM!
