As SAVEUR’s staff photographer, there’s rarely a day that I’m not shooting something in our studio or on location. But as I look back through my archives of thousands of photos from the past year, here are the images that stand out the most.
Mama J, who I met in Jamaica on assignment, is an incredible woman. An amazing cook, a generous host, and a great subject to photograph.
Nectarine and Blueberry Hand Pies
These pies sell themselves, so my only goal with this photo was to bring you as close to their gorgeous, crusty details as possible.
Our associate photo editor Allie told me this was her favorite photo of mine, a modern shot for a modern take on traditional ramen.
For our October issue I went down to Virginia to photograph the dying practice of turtle-hunting. Ricky Crouch is a natural at it, and can practically snatch turtles from the water in one swoop.
I don’t get too shoot things like candy that often, so this Scandinavian sweet was a nice change, a chance to make something graphic, bright, and pop-art-like.
Behind the Scenes at Eleven Madison Park
I was blown away by the carrot tartare course at Eleven Madison Park, and my goal here was simply to capture all the intricate components of the dish and show how nicely they’re arranged.
