Hi, I am a 31 year old film maker/web designer/photographer that also loves to cook. Put them together and we get food photography–I love spending every minute doing this, although lately don’t have as much time to dedicate to it.
Technically, my “studio” is my own kitchen and then a table where I lay everything out and photograph it. I try to use natural light as much as possible, but I won’t lie and say I never use artificial lighting. Part of being of a photographer, is understanding all kinds of light. I can’t refuse to learn about tungstens, flash and strobes. Where I live currently a sunny day is usually hard to come by, so I also use mini reflectors to enhance the food a bit.
My food blog primarily focuses on comfort food recipes. I believe in eating healthily as much as you can, but I know how short life can be. I have been going through what seems to be endless medical difficulties for the past decade and was even declared dead once on the operating table. So, I am going to eat delicious food that comforts me without feeling incredibly guilty. There are healthy ways of doing this, fast ways of doing this, vegetarian, vegan, gluten free and easy ways. None of my recipes are overly complicated or take an enormous amount of time.
About using my images:
I would greatly appreciate it if you contacted me first before copying or saving my images. I do embed a tracking code on all photographs. I am willing to sell certain photos to commercial companies, under the right circumstances. Will you please email me about this if you are interested in using any of my images? Send me an email
