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:
You see this crew? Impossible not to have a successful shoot or bright days. Thank you Mullen Lowe, NY Bakery and my regulars to make this more fun than officially allowed. Looking at you Tomo, Chen, Takako, Alex, Billy, Sharon, Cristina & Fangchi…

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.
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:

At last, the book is out! Fun collaboration with Linnea Johansson (Author) and Tadeu Magalhães (Art Direction & Design). It features recipes of get-togethers with our friends in Brooklyn. You can see some of the images here -> linnea johansson-cook book or flip through the book below:
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.
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.
I am very honored to have been selected again by Archive for ‘200 Best Ad Photographers Worldwide’ this year. Going with the flow and postponing my surfboard waxing & paddle board rental business for another 2 years I guess. Until then, I am happy to have my work published alongside photographers such as Alex Telfer, Nadav Kander, Kenji Aoki, Chris Buck, James Day, Jason Hindley, Julia Fullerton Batten and many other brilliant artists.
Another year, another book! Relaxed still life location shoot up in Maine, with Meredith Baird, Simone Powers and Matthew Kenney. This is how a creative collaboration should always feel like. Flowing, interesting and laid back. The result: ‘Raw Detox’, published by Gibbs Smith. Click here to see the image gallery.
