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:

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.

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.

Daniel Humm – Eleven Madison Park

A great assignment for ‘Der Feinschmecker’ with Swiss Chef Daniel Humm, at his 3 Michelin Star restaurant, Eleven Madison Park.  Daniel Humm and General Manager Will Guidara were gracious and accommodating hosts, giving us access to all areas of the restaurant.  Daniel, who received the ‘Outstanding Chef‘ Award from the James Beard Foundation in 2012 (one among many well-deserved recognitions for his fantastic work), was a terrific collaborator and fully engaged in our production.  See our series here -> EMP
