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:
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.
Very happy to announce that my work was selected again for the Communication Arts Photography Annual this year as well as for the London-based Pink Lady® Food Photographer of the Year Awards. Couldn’t be happier to be among such a select few talented photographers. I’ll let the lovely blog post by my agent do the talking for now…
Lovely multi day shoot with agency Weber Shandwick for all the new point of sale and in-store displays for Ragu Spaghetti & Pasta Sauces here in the United States. Space28 was the perfect work environment with the most beautiful & consistent daylight any food photographer could hope for. Grateful to my incredible team & crew who made it a wonderful and pleasant experience, shooting 25 recipes in three days and getting it all done in time with a smile on all our faces. See our behind the scenes footage here:

As a photographer, there’s hardly anything more rewarding than to be hired and given total freedom by an art director. The trust expressed in this gesture is always so invigorating. Thanks Seung! For our page opener and image series on ‘Edible Flowers’ for New You Magazine, I could count on absolutely beautiful, serendipitous food styling by Victoria Granof and for our story for ‘Beauty Now’, prop. stylist Thom Driver did an exceptional job. I am looking forward to shooting with all of them again soon.
Together with creative agency Addison New York, we shot videos and stills for the annual report and online presentation of WhiteWave Foods (Silk Almond Milk, Horizon Organic Milk, Land O Lakes, Earthbound Farms Organic, etc.). As always, a brisk shooting schedule didn’t deter us from having fun – prop. stylist Alex Niki did an incredible job getting everything and everyone ready (including the talent) and food stylist Takako Kuniyuki brilliantly multi-tasked her way through this 4 day assignment. Shot at Noho Productions and Space28, it was a real pleasure working in an environment that made us forget at times that we actually were at work. Excellent art direction by James Taylor and wonderful art production by Rebecca Horne made this job a killer combination of creativity, a pleasant collaboration and quality work.
