The 20th anniversary of How to Cook Everything by Mark Bittman is marked by this new edition with photographs by me! It was an honor to work on such a classic and essential book. We spent 3 weeks in NYC photographing hundreds of dishes and my crew, Victoria Granof (food stylist extraordinaire), Philippa Brathwaite (prop stylist), Martyna Szczesna (photo assistance), Kerri Conan, Stephanie Fletcher from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt made the job a dream. You can see more images from the book HERE
The book that really solves the nightly dinner dilemna is out now! Dinner for Everyone by Mark Bittman was a lengthy shoot with over 300 recipes and lots of leftovers (I gained a few pounds on this shoot!)
Earlier this year we were busy shooting a cookbook with Maria Zizka for Artisan books titled The Newlywed Table. We shot mostly in studio but also on a couple locations (including my own kitchen :). Graham Bradley designed the book and cheerfully mocked up over 200 cover options – this team was a hard working, creative powerhouse!
We wrapped a 3 week cookbook shoot for Mark Bittman (Clarkson Potter, 2018) – a marathon of cooking, shooting and eating (like prepping for Thanksgiving every day for 16 days). With over 300 recipes, it will be an essential reference and inspiration to cooks. Below is our shoot board, props and things grillin'. Look for it next year!
I've been working on a book with Tiffanie Turner, an incredible paper artist, and have finally put up some images from the upcoming book, The Fine Art of Paper Flowers (Ten Speed Press, 2017) I feel it's important to emphasize that these are made out of PAPER!! The book will be released on August 22, 2017 but is available for pre-order now here Tiffanie is amazing….
PDN (Photo District News) included me in a group of "4 forward thinking photographers" in a recent issue. There are so many food photgraphers out there and the article was an apt summary of my approach and attempt to stand out from the crowd (I'll be lifting these words in my next artist statement- just kidding!) They also did a short essay on thoughts on my hero photographer, Martin Parr.
