5 days of cheese

Ah the life of a food photographer. Most of my clients have come to realize that in addition to my lighting skills, I also have some food styling skills (after watching them style for the last 25 years). That is why for 3 days of this 5 day shoot I was both the photographer and food stylist. For the last 2 days I had Marie Haycox do the really difficult food and all I had to do was light, focus and shoot (just like a photographer). Doing so much is still nothing but fun. I have dug ditches for a living so I know that photography is a much better way for me to go. If you desire to be a commercial photographer, know that fashion photographers need to know how to steam clothing and food photographers have to know something about styling food.
