The FoodPhoto Festival in Denmark once again brought together some of the most renowned food photographers, stylists, art directors and magazine editors from 32 different countries, to exhibit their images, conduct workshops, portfolio reviews and conferences. I was happy to attend again and to hold two workshops on Daylight Food Photography, as well as a conference on the same topic. A big thank you to organizer Guenter Beer and his team, who did an amazing job producing the World’s only FoodPhoto Festival. Here are some impressions from Vejle:
Anybody who knows me is well aware that beer is one of my absolute favorite beverages, to shoot and to enjoy after a good gig. Years back when I thought of clients I would love to work with, Stella Artois was always among the top of my list – beautiful aesthetics, clean lines, a clear visual identity & excellent beer. I’m very happy that I now got to collaborate with Stella on their Global Holiday Ad Campaign, through Mother NY. It was as much fun shooting the dancing chalices and bottles as it was to scream STELLLAAAAAAA all day long, trying to impersonate Marlon Brando in ‘A Streetcar Named Desire.’ It easily turned into one of the most enjoyable assignments of the year. The creatives at Mother were wonderful partners in this endeavour and my team made me look good, once again.
Wishing you all very Happy Holidays and a great 2017 – Cheers!
I love to travel and when I’m not shooting stills, food or liquids in New York, you’re likely to find me near a beach, mountain or hot spring somewhere on this planet. The lovely people of Erwin Penland let me combine my stills with travel imagery for our latest job with TUMI. An absolute pleasure to work with the whole EP creative team, especially Dana Kandic, art producer extraordinaire!

Matthew Kenney’s latest venture opened its doors in February of 2016. Plant Food & Wine is a beautifully designed space with indoor and outdoor seating, situated in the artsy Wynwood district of Miami. Delicious creations by Executive Chef Scott Winegard grace the all plant-based menu. A pleasure to shoot and eat. To see the full series, please visit
Useful products, beautiful design, great functionality; happy to work with Bodum once again for their 2016 image ad campaigns, new website and print catalogs.
The joy to be selected again by Archive for ‘200 Best Ad Photographers Worldwide 2016/17! I was planning on working as a lifeguard in Hawaii, but it got postponed by the jury of Archive. Sending my sincere gratitude to all who have collaborated with me over the years to create beautiful work, and most importantly, shared a good time.
It’s such a pleasure to do editorial work for Martha Stewart Living Magazine! Together with terrific food stylists Sarah Carey and Greg Lofts, we shot two columns of ‘Food & Gatherings’ – Classic Biscotti and Scalloped Potatoes, for back to back issues.
We continued our series with Maker’s Mark for their iconic Maker’s 46 Bourbon Whiskey. Since it is only made during the winter months, we’ve decided to shoot it on a frozen lake. In the studio. With real ice. Well, maybe it’s easier to understand if you watch the video below…
