Seattle is losing one of its talented citizens today. Comedian, author, producer, Paul Barach is headed to Denver. This is from a shoot we did recently. You're welcome, Denver.

Vietnam Vegetable Carving

I am a sucker for produce carving. Last month, while I was on a small cruise in Halong Bay, Vietnam, the ship's talented chef gave us a quick class. I gave it a shot, but I have no plans to quit my day job.

Tiny Assistants

 These are from a shoot I did at the end of May. I was looking back over them yesterday and realized I needed to give a shoutout to my very helpful and eager photo assistants.

Theo stands in with dynamic poses while I balance lighting.

Soren has a very hands-on approach to color matching skin tones.

Untouched Eggs

Shooting food, we strive for the same perfection that the beauty industry does. If chickens were self-conscious about their eggs you can bet the advertising and editorial industries would be giving them a complex, too.

So here are eggs, sans retouching.... but still posed very carefully, in the afternoon light. Thank you to my dear friends, Darren and Steph, and their backyard hens, who who gifted my household with these beautiful imperfect eggs.
