“Not just what you look like, but who you are…”
That’s my goal, every time I photograph someone, an event, food…whatever it is. I want the viewer to understand a bit about who or what the subject is about, their personality.
Outside of my wedding and family work, my favorite “people” photography revolves around small businesses. I really like getting to know other small business owners and their businesses, what makes them unique, and how they want to be seen by the public.
“Soup to Nuts”
In honor of this month’s sports “holiday,” I thought I’d talk about a few commercial food shoots I’ve done for Super Bowl and football promotions.
Kicking it off is a cozy threesome of soups I shot for Snapware, recipes by one of my favorite chefs, the inimitable Emeril Lagasse. Soups are tricky…the ingredients like to separate, they tend to congeal as they sit and cool off and it can be difficult to see the ingredients. So, often, the simpler the setting, the better. And we had to work quickly.
