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
Hello and Happy (almost) Summer time. As you may or may not know, I (Philip) now have a business partner/collaborator/additional photographer/videographer/website & social media contributor who’s name is Jared. For the past few weeks, we’ve been hard at work creating content and figuring out the routine of running a business together. And that has left us both too busy to share recent work here on the blog. Today, I’m going to begin to remedy that by sharing a few images from a recent photoshoot in Bentonville’s newest culinary establishment, Bar Cleeta.
Unlike a traditional restaurant that serves entrees, Bar Cleeta serves small, shareable plates that pair well with their curated wine list and craft cocktails. As you might expect from a culinary establishment of this caliber, everything is beautifully presented and wonderfully delicious. For more information on Bar Cleeta, please visit their facebook or instagram page.
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
Change is inevitable. Sometimes, it’s quick and abrupt. And other times, you start to feel the slow pull and growing tension of the current circumstances and you start wondering what to do about it. The latter has been my experience over the last couple of years…Read More
