Congratulations to writers Lacey Thacker and Sara Mitchell on the launch of their brand new book, Rooted: Central Arkansas Farm & Table. We’ve had the honor and privilege for working with them along with Etalia Press on this project, meeting the wonderful farmers, chefs and creatives, hearing about their stories and their contributions, and photographing them for this book. The resulting publication was released last week to the public via a special party held (in true Rooted fashion), at an outdoor garden. Here’s a few images from the project as well as a few snapshots of the launch party. For more information or to order the book, please visit the website. Cheers!Read More
Today on the blog: Say hello to a few of the men and women who proudly serve our wonderful city by working for Rogers Water Utilities. Clean water is a vital part of our lives and the men and women pictured here work very hard, oftentimes behind the scenes, to make sure our city has the highest quality water and the best infrastructure for delivering that water. Drink up!Read More
Another recent project from this month was spending some quality time with the talented and ambitious students from the University of Arkansas Honors College. It never ceases to amaze me the level of thinking and dedication these students apply to their lives and to their learning. I spent the day hearing about how they are trying to make the world a better place while also photographing them in their natural environments. It’s days like this that remind me why I love my job so much.
Food photography is one of those seemingly simple processes that in reality, couldn’t be more intricate and oftentimes, difficult. Through photographing food, I have come to appreciate not only the art of making and cooking food, but also the art of making food look picture perfect on camera. Today’s blog post is from a couple of recent food shoots I worked on. One was for Ella’s Table, the delicious restaurant housed in Carnall Hall on the University of Arkansas campus. The other shoot was for the recipe section of a popular website. Both shoots involved deliciously presented food, one by the chef from Ella’s Table and the other, by my favorite food stylist Ashley Henderson. Happy Monday everyone.Read More
