creativeLIVE Table Top Fundamentals…

I’ll be heading back out to Seattle next week, January 16-18, to take on another 18 hours of live instruction at creativeLIVE.com.

This time I’ll be teaching a course about the fundamentals of table top photography with a special emphasis on product photography…which has always been one of those extensions of food photography for me.

Enroll for FREE! And then…if you can’t think about life without me living in your hard drive or iPad…then of course… buy the course. See you there.

Thank You…

22recipehealth-articleLargeHere is a plate of Tomato Risotto for my friends at creativeLIVE. There are so many people to thank for what was a most incredible experience at creativeLIVE this past weekend that it is a bit overwhelming to think about.

First off, I would like to thank Co-Founder Craig Swanson and Arlene Evans, the Director of Photography Education for having the confidence in me to put me live on the air for 18 hours. I would also love to thank Executive Producer Amanda Caines for putting me together with Content Producer Michael Karsh and Editorial Manager Whitney Ricketts. They are two of the most organized, professional and most of all collected and kind people I have ever worked with.

I would also like to thank all of the creativeLIVE crew who worked on our segments and a special thank you to Susan Roderick and Jim Catechi, the on air hosts, who helped me stay relaxed, focused and on point. True pros. A big thanks to our Line Producers Lindsay Martin, Nin Robare and especially Celeste Olds who came out of “retirement” to work with us. Also, thanks to John Cornicello, my photo assistant, who stayed one step ahead of me for all three days.

Thanks to the guys in the booth and behind the cameras and running the sound, Adam Bauer, William Brown, Kellen Shimizu, Tracy Nystrom, Sam Graydon, Alex Walsh, Michael Rotchadl. And kudos to the PA’s Erin Stewart, Caitlin MacKintosh and Carolyn Palma. I am sure I am missing a few people but please know how grateful I am for your hard work and support you provided me.

I would also like to acknowledge my in-studio students. Firstly, Paola Thomas, my friend and biggest supporter. I would never have been here if it was not for your insistence that I belonged on creativeLIVE and how skillfully you put me together with them. Thank you to Kate Hailey, Leah Barad, Steve Sabrier, Leigh Olson, Pam Bolig and Kristin Tetuán. Your authenticity, eagerness to learn, your great questions and incredible hard work over these past days has been humbling. I admire your drive to find more in your photography and get better at this craft. Bravo!!!!

A special thank you goes to my friend Shauna Ahern. Your willingness to share of yourself, always and in all arenas is transformative for all of us. I was and I know the audience was honored to have you there to share your wisdom, triumphs and heartaches in your business and life. Inspirational is the least of it. You mentor us all.

Finally, I would like to thank the internet audience. The size of you blew my mind. Answering your questions actually helps me think and learn too. Your attention and interest were so vital to this project and you showed it everywhere. It was a profound experience for me.

If you want to visit my course page to purchase the class you still have a few hours to get the discounted price. It will be there for you to watch, as you need to and I hope you take advantage of all we shared over the past few days.

 

Here are a few shots from the cast and crew:
