I love creating a world and inviting the viewer inside. I feel the job of any artist is to communicate something that cannot be communicated with words, and to attach emotion and their own voice/feel
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
Post production is where your style as a creative person can really emerge. For food photography it is more about the images straight out of camera. Finding natural light, using props, catching the best angles all contribute to a successful food shoot.

A fun fact about this photographer
I was a supervisor at a jail in Grand Rapids for 5 years, and I quit to become a chef, and do food photography full time. Making that transition was very scary financially at the time.
