Food, Wine & Photography

This shoot kicked off this year into high gear!

It all started with a phone call from Scott Smith, catering director for Chartwell's at CSU Stanislaus. He was interested in doing a creative collaboration with me and his extremely talented Executive Chef, Connie Bearden.  He asked me if I do food photography and I said absolutely!

We had a blast on this shoot! Chef Connie created their popular dishes and a few of her specialties for the shoot and we got to sample every dish, let me tell you, not only does her food look beautiful it tasted incredible too!!

I highly recommend Chartwell's for your dining and catering needs (small or large functions), they go above and beyond the call of duty for their clients.

Bon Appetit!
