One thing that a lot of photographers have in common is that they aren’t afraid to get their hands dirty. Recently, Philadelphia-based sport and lifestyle commercial photographer Chris Sembrot dove headfirst into a shoot documenting the life of a New Jersey Bay area clammer for the Heritage Shellfish Cooperative that required some serious hands-on adventures. The images are to be used for the co-op’s website and collateral pieces. Chris loved the flexibility that this job provided:
I think it’s pretty safe to say that as a photographer, being let loose to shoot a project as you see it is the dream job – period. For this shoot, the objective was simple, document the day-in-the-life of the New Jersey Bay area clammer. Projects like these are always a blast. Not only because I got to shoot whatever I wanted, but I got to spend the entire hour day eating clams on the half shell right from the bay!
