Popular Plates Magazine: Soups and Stews

Last month I was brought back by Dave DeWitt and the team at Fiery Foods.com to photograph Soups and Stews for Popular Plates Magazine. This was a three day shoot that involved a huge amount of prep from the incomperable stylist/chef team of Emily, Lois and Mary Jane. One of the many perks of this job was the opportunity to work with Wes Naman, a favorite local photographer of mine. I don't often get the chance to work so closely with such a respected peer, and I like to think that we helped one another get out of ruts as the days wore on. Wes and I shoot a lot of food during the course of a given week, but we have different approaches and ideas and it was great to share and collaborate. Sometimes working as a photographer can feel isolating, but this was the opposite.

Look for a copy of Popular Plates in late September. They have a huge circulation, so it should be pretty easy to find.
