More Savory food items

leave a comment »

We get to shoot some great food items on a quarterly basis for many of our clients, as their menus change frequently.  This week, pork loin, honey bbq wings and a bison burger from Glory Days Grill. According to their beverage director, after the table tents were launched, sales of the bison burger took off!

In July I was lucky enough to attend an architectural photography workshop at Maine Media Workshops. Maine is a great place in July – much nicer than the DC area. We visited a number of great locations including…

Does good photography matter?

with one comment

Since you’re reading this on a photography blog, there’s not really any suspense as to the answer.  Of course a photographer things photography matters. But what about other people?  One of our regular restaurant clients made a remark regarding their current summer menu. This menu (which contains more photos than usual) has been phenomenally successful. As in on the order of triple what they usually do. Now of course, most of that has to do with the quality of the product – but I’ll take some of the credit!

From our continuing work with Taste of the Bay magazine. Garry’s Grill has been a family favorite in Severna Park for a while so when we got the chance to work with them I was excited.

New images for Jerry’s Seafood

leave a comment »

Those of you not from Maryland may not be familiar with the concept of the crab cake – so by way of education let me say that they’re made from crab meat (blue, not dungeness) egg, spices and as little bread filler as possible. Usually about the size of a hockey puck, they’re either deep fried, pan fried or broiled. Jerry’s sells a crab cake they call the Crab Bomb.  It’s about the size of a softball!  That’s big.
