Ever since I can remember, I've been passionate about photography. I purchased my first DSLR camera to study photography in college. Snapping the first few shots around my parents' house, I remember being completely smitten by the beautiful depth of field that could be produced with my Nikon D70s.
Over the years, my camera traveled with me from Boston to San Francisco to Seattle. I fell in love with food in San Francisco, but it was in Seattle that I started shooting food and I was hooked. It felt great to have complete control over my subject, my surroundings and my light (most of the time). And then there's the endless supply of inspiration that comes from the beautiful and versatile produce available in the Pacific Northwest.
What's exciting about food photography is that I can communicate a mood, a time of day or a special event with powerful imagery and minimal, if any, words. Our love of food is universal, and often the foundation of fond memories. Food fuels the stories of our lives. And what tasty stories they are.
