St Kitts | EnRoute Magazine

The past couple of years have been really amazing and I’m lucky enough to be able to say most of the assigments I’ve landed could easily fit into the “dream job” category, but this particular shoot was epic… a total alignment of all the things I’m super passionate about.. travel, food and farming. Every time I have the opportunity to meet with a chef or a farmer (in this case both) my understanding of food deepens but my curiosity only grows.

Here is a collection of my favorite images I collected during the 3 days I was on the island of St. Kitts, photographing Kittian Hill and Belle Mont Farm. I am super honored to have had pleasure of meeting some amazing and talented humans on this trip, chef Christophe Letard, head farmer Yahsonn Safari, nursery man Winston Lake, and Val Kempadoo to name a few… but there is no way I could tell the story any better than my travel companion and the writer for the assignment, Rachel Heinricks. So, check out this killer article written by her for EnRoute Magazine.

Chobani Yogurt | Instagram Carousel

I paired up with the creative team at Chobani recently to photograph a really fun concept for an Instagram carousel advertising campaign. The campaign revolved around the many uses of Chobani’s products, showcasing recipes for every time of day (from breakfast to dessert) and every type of kitchen (from a home kitchen to a professional one). We were tasked with shooting 4 images for each concept that would tile together seamlessly to create one long panoramic style image. Though the images are all separate, we used lighting and styling cues to trick the eye into seeing the final piece as one continuous image. It was a super fun challenge putting all the puzzle pieces together for this one, all the while making sure the food still looked amazing. I have a stellar crew to thank for the success of this shoot! Maya Rossi on props, Alison Attenborough was our food stylist, and production was in the hands of Berns Rothschild.

Bon Appetit | Hot 10 | Petit Trois

The Bon Appétit annual Hot Ten issue is consistently one of my favorites, so I always feel honored to contribute. This year I headed down to L.A. to photograph Chef Ludo Lefebvre and his new Restaurant Petit Trois, the #3 restaurant on the list. Andrew Knowlton really says it best over here. Thanks Chef Ludo for that amazing lunch!
