Sometimes You Just Get Lucky

Food Photography for Wholesum Harvest Tomato and HoneyFood Photography for Wholesum Harvest Pepper and Garlic SaladI received a call the other day from a Chef that does recipe development and is looking for a photographer. Funny thing is, I was recommended by a client that didn’t use me. Funnier thing is that the Chef lives right in the next town.

Well, did we all hit it off. What a great team. The photos were amazing! We are certainly going to keep this team together and create more art. I feel a cookbook or two in the works.

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.
