Pretty Enough to Eat

Veggie BurgerTomato and Fresh Mozzarella CheeseI’m sitting here chomping at the bit. I just finished a photo shoot for a great client and I can’t wait to publish these gorgeous images. The client is an organic grower in Arizona. veggie and humus sandwichI am working with a great team, their recipe developer, Tony and my food stylist, Michael. I am not doing product shots of the produce. Rather we are shooting for the recipes. (Do I detect a book coming?) One thing is for sure, this job is not easy. After two long days of shooting, we are all totally exhausted but, I would not trade this job for anything – I love doing this.

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.
