My love of food started at an early age by helping my mom in the kitchen and my dad in the garden. I love to try interesting and extravagant foods and especially love exploring new ethinic cuisines. This deep rooted love and understanding of food is behind every photograph that I take. As a photographer, I combine my fondness of food with my fascination with interesting locales and backgrounds to produce creative images. I love to visit my clients' restaurants to photograph their dishes in a complimentary atmosphere. Whether on location or in the studio, I strive to create images that draw the viewer into the image and make them feel like they could sit right down and take a bite. When I'm not shooting food I love to spend time discovering my own city in new and exciting ways. I'm an avid birder and love the challenge of finding and photographing different bird species.
