Annapolis Institution – Cantler’s Riverside Inn

leave a comment »

Those of us lucky enough to call the Chesapeake region our home understand the concept of the crab deck. For those poor souls outside of the area – think tiki bar minus the mai tai. Add in steamed blue crabs and that’s the idea.  We’ve shot Cantler’s 6 or 7 times over the years so it’s always fun to try and get a new perspective.

Burgers and Fries Galore

leave a comment »

A few months ago we did a shoot for a new burger chain in Virginia. Be Right Burger  They’re really working hard on doing it right – and their food looks great – and that’s the most important thing right?

As part of our ongoing work with the Mid-Atlantic Dairy Assn. we visited a dairy farm in Delaware (Hopkins Farm Creamery) to photograph the operators. Note: dairy cows have very long tongues capable of licking a camera lens from tremendous distances.   Also, if you’re in the neighborhood, I highly recommend their ice cream!

Pears for fall

leave a comment »

We recently did a job for Baltimore Style magazine (which I really like since they gave me one of my first commercial jobs.) We shot several pear dishes and worked with their new food writer.  Great recipes and a really fun shoot. Hopefully we’ll have the chance to do more soon.
