In a Jam

I was quite surprised when I got an e-mail from a jelly and jam manufacturer from Maine-Lost Loon Farms. But, jellies and jams are great to photograph…so many possibilities and was excited about the job. And, what great packaging – I loved their jars.

As it turns out, this is a family business and the family came from New Jersey and moved to Maine. One family member has moved back to New Jersey and was my contact. What a great family to work with and working with my food stylist Michael Giletto, we got some great shots. Oh – according to my wife – the jams are delicious (I still can’t believe that since I am diabetic I rarely get to eat what I shoot.)

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.
