Sexy Sicilian Seafood

Bold flavours, poppy colours and ingredients bar none. Reimagine your seafood feast with a Sicilian spin.

(Bruny Island Oyster with Kombucha and Raspberries Vinaigrette)
Instead of tangy, fiery Tabasco sauce or a classic mignonette sauce, try this Sicilian recipe. The creamy texture of the oysters, acidity of kombucha and sweetness of raspberries will provide a satisfying kick.

Egg & Potato. Fish & Fowl. Four Seasons of Exploration.

The challenge here was to choose four simple ingredients, the basic building blocks of so many wonderful dishes, and prepare each four different ways. These four were chosen because of of their versatility and the essential place they occupy in cuisines of all cultures. The different preparations of each ingredient were inspired by the four seasons of the year.

This project, as always, was a Bruton Stroube team effort. Food and prop stylists, producers and digital artists all got in on the fun. We considered dozens of props and backgrounds. We brainstormed tons of recipe ideas, and worked hard to make beautiful photographs.
Enjoy the photos. You can see more of what we do at

Why learn Photography?

A picture is worth a thousand words! Artists want to express their feelings and emotions through their pictures, people love nature and want to capture its beauty. Photography is a medium of creative art and a photograph is a picture created with mechanical, chemical or electronic means.

Marriages may be decided in heaven, but they actually take place on the Earth and wedding photos are the most valuable possessions of people.

Parents love their children and their photos too. Schools and colleges want team photos. Corporate establishments always need photos for brochures, advertisements, catalogues, annual reports and press releases.

Newspapers and news magazines need news events covered with supporting photos. Stock agencies always want pictures; you may sell your work for calendars or greeting cards. There are many advertising agencies who want photos to create ads for their clients. The number of new magazines continues to grow. And all of them need photos.

Models want their portfolios done, companies want to promote their products and services, people want their family functions covered, and there is no end to the list.

It’s About Soul with Chef Todd Richards

We’re always excited to be introduced to a number of creatives across verticals here at Athleisure Mag. A few weeks ago, we got an advanced copy of Soul: A Chef’s Culinary Evolution in 150 Recipes and from the selected dishes, colorful imagery and the voice of Chef Todd Richards, we had to interview him for this month’s issue. He brings to life what soul food means as a genre and how it can be interpreted within its classic dishes as well as being utilized in other dishes that are not commonly thought to align with this category. Chef Richards is self-taught, passionate about educating others about the food and bringing the love and community that surrounds it.
