I love food. Nowadays I do tend to focus more on the production end of things--farms, fisheries, etc., but my 10+ years in food service catering, serving, prepping, and cooking, will always be the backbone of not only my understanding of our food economy, but also my own work ethic. I grew up working in the restaurant industry in my hometown of Cape May, NJ, and have always been connected to food production and service since. With the majority of my farm photography happening during the growing season, I'm finding that working with local and sustainably-minded chefs and restaurants is a perfect wintertime pairing.
This year I got to provide photography for the launch of THREE new Maine food businesses: Craft Kitchen & Provisions, Maine Maple Creemee Co., and Vesper Bread. Lately I've also been working with Maine Food for Thought, an amazing food tour company based in Portland, Maine, as well as The Infatuation, a food review group that sends me to many area restaurants.
