I love photography. I love food. Put them together and you’ve got my passion. I first created this blog as a way to update my family when I lived miles upon miles apart from them. Now it has become a hub for expressing myself creatively, and sharing my craft with my readers. I never used to think about food photography as a career, let alone an artform. Little did I know that food photography would become my life. I can honestly say that photography is the core of my spiritual and mental happiness. I feel so incredibly alive and fulfilled when I am photographing, and I am extremely lucky to have a career which is symbiotic with my personal goals, and desires. This blog is a mental and visual reminder of my progress as a photographer and as a cook. I have so much to learn in both respects, and I look forward to sharing with you all my experiences.
In my photography I use natural and flash lighting interchangeably. I try to keep my subjects true to form, meaning, no chemicals or other tricks photographers use to make food look appetizing. What you see is always edible, and fresh, and almost always homemade. I think it is important for a photographer to be able to make something look amazing, but realistic. So many times a recipe or image in a magazine has sparked my interest, but ultimately left me discouraged when my own attempt did not yield the same results.
Aside from my food photography, occasionally I will share portraits I’ve created or any other project I’m working on. Food photography may be my passion, but give me a camera and I won’t hesitate to click the shutter, regardless of subject matter. I’m currently 27 and living in Appleton, Wisconsin.
