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 of the new TUMI v3’s 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!

Summer. Ceviche! Thanks to super chef Diego Oka of La Mar Miami, who made our ceviche assignment for Cadillac Magazine such an amazing experience. Shoot. Eat. Laugh. Repeat. No doubt Gaston Acurio would be proud. Prop Styling by fantastic Aelana Curran; first class Art Direction by Cassidy Zobl.
Pouring caramel and bending it to our will! Definitely the slowest ‘splashes’ I’ve ever captured, but just as interesting and challenging. Special effects rigger: Mark Borow. Food Stylist: Takako Kuniyuki. Post Production: Leo Rocha.
Anheuser-Busch launched its first hard root beer and I had the privilege of creating the initial campaign for Best Damn Root Beer / BDRB. The alcohol content of this root beer was at the heart of the brief and producing visuals that speak to brewing (brewing cellar / sumptuous foam) were a requisite for this series. Lovely collaboration with Group360 and Nicole, Alaska, Frances, Ali, Mike and Wendy!
Handcrafted tea, organic ingredients and real ice – a delicate and visually lyrical approach for the new Pure Leaf / Tea House Collection campaign, by Pepsi-Lipton. To highlight craftsmanship and quality, we decided to shoot on a tea master’s work bench – a beautiful piece of white washed ash. We sent out two food styling teams to gather wild blackberry bushes in Upstate New York & Western Pennsylvania and our dedicated prop stylists and producers embarked on a round the globe journey for in-season White Honeysuckle. How we finally found it merits a separate post; all I can say it was incredible and worth all the effort! Thanks to Makoto Aoki at Swell for having the ‘back-up hand made super gorgeous White Honeysuckle’ ready, just in case.
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
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.
