'Beyond photographing beautiful plates of food,
I connect you with the people & the stories behind the dishes'
I grew up in a home where dinner time was punctuated by the sounds of laughter and animated voices overlapping one another as the whole family (and usually an extra guest or two) gathered around the table to eat & share stories.
Most of my favourite memories involve food in some way:
Growing up I learned that food is more than just fuel for the body– food brings people together.
Somewhere along the way I developed a love for nikon cameras and Fuji Velvia slide film and with encouragement from my Uncle Al (a wildlife photographer) I decided to go to photography school.
While establishing my commercial studio I satisfied my wanderlust with bike trips and surf adventures and found that no matter where I traveled, I was always able to connect with people through our common bond of food.
Realizing I was happiest making those real connections I ditched the studio and now I spend my time on the road, in the fields and visiting in random kitchens.
I spend time:
Every one of us has a unique story about what food means to them.
I tell those stories with beautiful images.
Yes, I love creating mouth watering pictures for glossy magazines and cookbooks,
but that is only part of the story.
It all comes down to what I learned as a kid.
Food brings people together.
Photography is my way of connecting people through our shared love of food.
I create images for a bunch of different editorial & commercial clients around the world.
If there is an amazing story to tell - I want to help tell it.
