Back in January I received a phone call from Paige & Chris Gould, the owners of Central Provisions, about shooting some imagery for them to use in this spring’s People’s Best New Chef contest sponsored by Food & Wine. It was all very exciting, made even more so because I had to keep the fact that he was up for the award a complete secret and not tell a soul. Food & Wine just released the list of New England contenders last week, and I couldn’t be happier to see Chris’s name (and photo!) among the region’s most accomplished chefs.

Earlier this winter I made the trip up to Bangor to photograph Blaze for another restaurant feature for Down East. After years of corresponding over email with Melanie Brooks, the story’s writer, I had the chance to finally meet her in person and share a delicious lunch together. Read Melanie’s piece about Blaze and see more photos here!
I brought along my Mamiya and one roll of Ektar – my favorite travel film – on our recent trip to Vermont. The slow, thoughtful process of shooting with this camera is a welcome change from working with my digital bodies and even my trusty 1V. It’s heavy (at least, to me) but the end results are always worth it.
I had such a wonderful experience shooting a few rooms for The Pitcher Inn in Warren, Vermont a couple of weeks ago. Michael wrote an exceptional piece on Map & Menu about our trip, but I couldn’t resist sharing a few of the unique details that help make The Pitcher Inn experience such a memorable one.
Even though I shot this assignment on a cold Saturday in November, the photos have me itching for warmer days and fried clams! Photographing Michael Landgarten, the owner of Bob’s Clam Hut, and his family & staff for Yankee was such a treat. It was my first visit to this Kittery institution and I cannot wait to return to enjoy my own basket of clams in the sunshine!
