Communication Arts Photography Annual 2015 / Pink Lady® Food Photographer of the Year Finalist

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…

Ragu

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:

New You Magazine – Edible Flowers & Cosmetics

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.

WhiteWave Foods – Annual Report

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.

Flavour – Dining App

A very stylish new app to find your city’s best restaurants, tailored to your current cravings. Once you select your location, choose a destination based on neighborhood, cuisine and special requests. All of the suggestions are culled from food critics, bloggers and locals:

Since this app was designed around my photography (food styling by David Bouley), I am obviously a little biased when it comes to it’s look…  However, it’s not only beautiful but also very useful and highly functional.  Download it here for free.  Covered cities:  NYC, Chicago and San Francisco.

Stay up late!

Here’s a quick preview of a cook book we’ve been working on this spring with a well known Swedish Chef…  No, not that one -> this one!  Linnea is just as funny, but actually knows how to cook.  Not sure about her meatball tennis skills, though.

Working title of our project:  Stay up late

Chapters and recipes all revolve around sharing a good meal & good drinks in good company.
