Last month, I was tasked with shooting a Bouche de Noel for Melissa Clark’s Good Appetite column. I had never made or shot one before and I knew that this particular recipe, inspired by the great Dorie Greenspan, had to be aces. I also knew that when Melissa made her’s she had a ringer in the kitchen….Dorie herself. The pressure was on…but I have my own superstar on the bench to call on when in need of a big pinch hit…none other than my great friend, pastry maestro, Pichet Ong.
I have also formed a creative partnership with my former assistant Devon Knight and his editing partner Jason Lee to begin to shoot and direct food videos. We decided that this was a good chance to give our new collaboration a whirl…interesting, seasonal subject matter, a brand name talent on board and a recipe by a legend.
Here is the result…plus some snappy music to rock to while you roll. Merry Christmas!!!

One of the clips from my most recent stint on creativeLIVE.com on Table Top Photography. Check it out here.
creativeLIVE posted this 30 min. clip of my class on Youtube which contains some very important information for anyone thinking about doing food photography for a living. It includes my “10 Questions You Need to Ask a Client Before Taking a Job”. The entire talk and the course are now on sale for the holidays. Hope you enjoy it.
Now that the folks at creativeLIVE have posted a pile of clips from my sessions there, I have the opportunity to post them here and give you all the opportunity to learn a bit and know where to go to find more instruction. Hope you enjoy.
So, today we had a really great Google Hangout with the folks at creativeLIVE and Foodista. We had excellent questions from the audience and it was a lot of fun as a warmup to my creativeLIVE workshop
