I’m a commercial food photographer who finds beauty in even the most humble ingredients and always strives to make a food photograph as visually delicious as its real-life counterpart.

As a former art director with a keen eye for layout and photo details, I work well within parameters defined by my client’s creative team or agency, but I’m just as happy to take the lead as needed, especially for my client-direct shoots.

I am a New York-based commercial photographer, specializing in food, drinks, and lifestyle. My passion for capturing the art of food grew from my long-time affair with cooking and eating.

I’ve been taking pictures since I was 8 years old. I grew up in Newark, Delaware. I moved to California in 1989 to attend Art Center College of Design where I received my second degree in photography in 1993 and have been shooting ever since. I’m based in Redondo Beach, the South Bay in the Los Angeles area but shoot all over the country. I have family in Delaware and travel there frequently.
Over the years I’ve shot thousands of food images. If time allows, I do my own production. I’ve coordinated and prepped over 1150 jobs from a one day shoot with a few shots a day, to jobs that were three weeks long, with two sets going, a shot list of 175 images, and a crew of 15 people.
The type of gear I use totally depends on the job and it’s requirements. For my commercial work, I use medium format cameras with high resolution Phase One digital backs in order to get extremely large, crisp images with beautiful color.
I also have done several speaking engagements and workshops at food blogging and cooking conferences throughout the US.

I wish I could say I have tasted every dish I shot. People may not agree on politics, taxes or even the weather, but we surely drop our differences and come together over food. Time spent at the table with others is one of the best ways to get to know them. Photography is much the same.
