Food Photography & Styling Workshop

Food Photography & Styling Workshop

I returned from my (amazing, yet extended) road trip just in time to teach another Food Photography and Styling Workshop at Galerie Jenner. Lots of food to photograph (and eat!), everyone left with full bellies and memory cards, what a fun day! I want to thank Jeremiah for sharing his gallery space (and snapping these shots of us!) and all the wonderful students who attended. Also, big thanks to my pal’s Valerie and Catalina for letting me raid your houses for the amazing props!

 

 

 

Road Trip!

[Chorus:]

I’ve been everywhere, man.
I’ve been everywhere, man.
Crossed the desert’s bare, man.
I’ve breathed the mountain air, man.
Of travel I’ve had my share, man.
I’ve been everywhere.   ~ J. CASH


36 days, 7466 miles, 162 cups of coffee, 373 gallons of gas, 2 oil changes, 13 states (some twice), 68 hotel rooms, 1 fleabag motel, 64 free breakfasts, 3 doggy baths, dodged a few tornadoes, a 2 day dirt storm through Texas followed by snow, 2 packs of allergy pills, towed once, celebrated St. Patrick’s day, visited Elvis, 3 home cooked meals, commandeered a “wash-o-rama” with 18 loads of laundry, more BBQ and tacos than we care to admit, beignets & chicory coffee in the french quarter & a mini Mardi Gras parade, alligators, 2 airplane rides…. ZERO squabbling.

Those of you who didn’t read my last post, (oh, so long ago….) My cousin Tammie, her service dog Robby, our friend Karen and I spent 5 weeks together on an amazing road trip from Santa Cruz, California to Fort Lauderdale, Florida AND back to Santa Cruz. So many sites, stories and memories… too many mention, it’s a trip I will always cherish. Here are a just few highlights.

Happy Birthday! Did someone say ROAD TRIP?!

SnailsView is one year old today!

What an amazing year! I wanted to take this opportunity send a super-sized THANK YOU for your continued encouragement, support and for making my first year so incredibly special.

Also, I’ll be heading off to California in a few days to start a much-anticipated road trip with my amazing cousin Tammie (and friend Karen), who just so happens to be one of my favorite people on the planet.  I couldn’t be more excited! Aside from being one of the funnest people to be around, I can’t think of too many people who I’d want to be in a car with for 6000+ miles and several weeks!  We’ve been talking, dreaming and scheming about this trip for what seems like the better part of forever, and it’s finally just days away. We’ll be driving from Santa Cruz, California to Fort Lauderdale, Florida AND BACK! Coast to coast X2.  So, if you don’t hear from me for a few weeks – no worries, I’ll have a full report with lots of photos when I return (I may just surprise you with a post or two along the way)! See you soon!

BTW — just in case your interested, this is an Indian Spiced Cupcake with a Silky Dark Chocolate – Tahini frosting, I’ll be posting the recipe soon!
