Don’t Eat The Props

I never would have guessed that I would be a professional food photographer and stylist. I’ve always gravitated towards people and dramatic costumes and makeup as my muses. I quickly learned that I can have just as much creative flair with food and, also have a subject that doesn’t talk back or cancel a session. It does, however, expire.

My advice to those starting out is to find and make as many of your props and surfaces as you can. You also don’t need brand new equipment or gear. If you do your research, you can find good deals on used equipment or even rent before you buy to see what you like. Some of the surfaces I like to shoot with the most are ones I’ve made myself. They are also guaranteed to be unique.

The Art of the Snack

A Greek Feast for the Tastebuds
Greek Sneek is tucked away down a hallway reminiscent of the maze of narrow streets in the old country. The entryway passes through the wine room before opening into a white brick barrel-vaulted dining room.

Greek Sneek believes that eating, drinking, and toasting loudly is the best way to fulfill your moral obligation to maximize pleasure.

Greek Sneek serves Greek and Mediterranean cuisine created by executive chef, William DeMarco, along with hand-crafted Greek cocktails, inspired by native spirits, in addition to Greek wines, beers and Ouzo selections. Greek Sneek is a Morton Group restaurant.

“This is a highlight reel, and it is a creative outlet. Instagram is not real life.”

Social media has altered our perceptions of beauty and brought new talent to our attention in the latest edition of our annual hot list

Our Hot 100 Cover Girl Olivia Culpo is a natural-born winner

— – —

This year we decided to do things a bit differently. The inexorable rise of digital influencers – and a certain progressive social movement you may have heard a little something about – led us to reconsider what it means to be “hot” in 2019. There’s physical beauty, sure. But that was only part of our attraction algorithm. As a general rule, the women who caught our eye bring something else to the party, succeeding in their chosen field against long odds through sheer determination, raw talent, and a willingness to put themselves out there.
