Food photography and events are my primary bread & butter. My imagery has been used in advertising campaigns nationwide. I genuinely love food and was raised in kitchens by my Mother who was a Chef and restaurant owner. Later this translated into several years shooting freelance for a newspaper in Tampa, FL where I was fortunate enough not only to be able to photograph most of their food reviews but also some of the most amazing people, concerts and events, and even the President of the United States! As lead photographer for a food & restaurant magazine, I sharpened my styling skills and perfected the art of working with each restaurant and chef as efficiently, seamlessly, and non-obtrusively as possible to create an 'in-house' food photography studio space using the available location. As creative director, this has become my signature. I love the challenge of making the ordinary look extraordinary. Every job is as unique as the client and their product so I take my job seriously but with a touch of spontaneity and a laid-back, creative style that facilitates creative flow within a shoot. The result is delicious imagery that genuinely reflects the mood of the restaurant. I take the time to get to know you and come up with a plan and budget that works best for everyone.
