The Art of Food

September 06, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

I think one of the most undervalued sections in many papers today is the Food page. I can't tell you how many times I have subjects compliment me on our weekly section and I usually look forward to shooting it each week. Although I don't fancy myself a "foodie" or anything close to an expert, I do think that shooting hundreds of these pages over the years has given me an appreciation for the creativity and hard work chefs and cooks put in. So take a look at just a few of the food assignments I've shot over the last summer.
