BEHIND THE FOOD:
“I don’t like to say I am just a food photographer, because that doesn’t seem to really encompass what I do. More than anything, I love the story behind the food; the people that grow it, the chefs that prepare it, the communities that celebrate it, the people that gather around the table to share it. I love the art of food, the way it brings people together, and the way it melds cultures.
I like to capture the realness of food. So, this is what I mean when I say I am a documentary food photographer.
I create images that tell the story behind food—for chefs, restaurants, farms, wineries, books and magazines.“
