The Fourth is a new restaurant opening in mid-May 2013 on 4th Ave and 13th Street in NYC. It is attached to a new Hyatt boutique hotel, and they called me to do some promo shots for their website, publicity, and branding. We shot interiors, exteriors, food, and environment for two days. Here are some favorite images.

This week I found myself at the Glenmere Mansion, in Chester, NY. I had met co-owner Alan Stenberg several years ago when a magazine sent me to them. This time around, it was Alan calling. The mansion has a fabulous upcoming opportunity, and they needed photos asap. Here is a sample of what we photographed: appetizers, entrees, and desserts; the busy Supper Room; and cocktails in the Frogs End bar. It’s amazing what you can get done in a day with the right team.
Recently, I visited the new Bocuse Restaurant at the Culinary Institute of America and photographed a slide show’s worth of images for Chronogram magazine. Play the slide show on this page.
I was asked to share 10 of my favorite food images that I have shot for First We Feast. They did an interview with me, and made a slideshow on their website. Unsurprisingly, when asked for my favorite food images, I chose mostly story-driven pictures: ice fishing; running around eastern Canada with the Joe Beef chefs; a foie gras factory, and more. Link to story here.
It’s been a busy few weeks! Hurricane Sandy, a Nor’Easter, a cookbook for Men’s Health, and currently working on a project for the Culinary Institute of America. All the while running all around NYC and the Hudson Valley with Babes. Here is a document of events, in images:
Michael Symon’s latest book, Carnivore, hits the shelves on October 16th. I’m excited about this book. We shot it last fall, when I was 6 months pregnant, including a trip to Michael’s home in Cleveland, OH. Here are a few shots from the book, and I have already cooked two recipes from my advance copy, and everything is as tasty now as I remember it being on set.
Susan Feniger’s Street food cookbook was recently published (by Clarkson Potter), and here are a few shots from the book. I was three weeks pregnant when I shot this book in Los Angeles and had to tell the team what was up, because they kept making the most delicious and extravagant cocktails every night after shooting. Their puzzled faces when I said no on the first couple of nights were priceless.
On set in Woodstock, NY this week, shooting Chef Rahm Fama’s upcoming cookbook for Clarkson Potter. Let me just say, we are cooking and shooting and eating a lot of meat and vegetable sides, and it is tasty. Rahm is the best. I’m so lucky to get to work with high energy, excited, positive folks.
I was in the studio this week with food stylist Jessica Bard, photographing tarts for a dessert maker. My fridge and freezer are filled with the spoils, and I am eating a slice of tart three times a day: chocolate, raspberry, peach raspberry, apple. Oh, they are good. If you are in the Hudson Valley you can find these tarts at farm stands and gourmet food shops. And soon, you will be able to find them in the frozen section in the new, photo-filled, boxes.
Introducing a popsicle cookbook I photographed for the Brooklyn-based company People’s Pops. The book is published by Ten Speed Press, and is out this June. We ran around Brooklyn and NYC doing the shots for this book…we photographed people eating the popular popicles at their shop in the Chelsea Market, and from their stand on the High Line. I still dream of the plum popsicle and I will be making up a batch soon.
This little book that could just keeps rising. We now have a James Beard Award Nomination for The Art of Living According to Joe Beef.
The cookbook I photographed for Chef Susan Feniger is available for pre-order from bookstores (its official publication date is August, 2012, from Clarkson Potter). Susan is one of the most joyful and generous people I have ever met, and thinking back on the week I spent with her and the team, at her home in Los Angeles, makes me smile.
Here is a sneak peek at the cover, and note the book’s subtitle: Irresistibly Crispy, Creamy, Crunchy, Spicy, Sticky, Sweet Recipes. So true!
This morning, on assignment in Pine Plains, NY, I found myself in the midst of a pheasant hunt. Got to love a French chef on a hunt: Mid-morning snack included slabs of home-made duck paté and cured ham on chunks of baguette, white and red wine in glassware, and steaming hot bullion…. with table, tablecloth, and napkins, of course.
