Big Apple BBQ 2010 - Baby Back Ribs

Once a year restaurants from around the country gather in New York City’s Madison Square Park for the Big Apple BBQ. The BBQ is a weekend long block party where slabs of ribs, pulled pork sandwiches, brisket, and sausages are served up to thousands of New Yorkers.

Food Photography Workshop

Food Photography Workshop - Roast Duck & Vegetables

In 2010 I began attending photography group outings and workshops. My first photography workshop was organized by a Meetup group and held at Culturefix in Lower Manhattan and focused on lighting tips and techniques for working with food. Attendees were separated into two groups of about eight and took turns using hot lights and strobes on five plated dishes.
