Being a Diabetic Food Photographer – Life is Cruel

Whole Wheat Lasagna

Whole wheat pasta with low carb tomato sauce is my new Friday night meal.

How uncanny is it that I have chosen to be a food photographer – photographing lots of chocolate and desserts – but unable to eat any of them. Torture, I tell you, simply torture! No cake, no candy, no cookies, no pasta, no sugar, no potatoes, and almost no pizza. How can I survive on one slice of pizza every now and then? Boy, I can use a butcher as a client. Any steak restaurants out there need great photos?

About Jerry

I was a science teacher for 31 years. During that time I photographed wedding and Bar Mitzvahs for about 15 years but that was in the days before digital. Being a teacher, I had my summers free so I assisted food and commercial still life photographers in NYC for 3 summers and fell in love with it. Having a wife and a mortgage, it was not practical to give up a job in teaching and go into photography so I put off my dream of becoming a food photographer until I retired from teaching. Now I am living my dream - I am a food and product photographer servicing New York City, Philadelphia and all of New Jersey.
