Hey everyone! So things have been full speed ahead over here lately. It’s been an incredible ride! I just got back from my show opening on the picturesque and adorably New England island of Nantucket. The show opening was a huge success with an enormous turn out. People were flooding the sidewalk outside the gallery and stayed and discussed the pieces for hours. It was overwhelmingly positive and quite incredible to hear the discussions people were having about the work. Pretty dang cool!
Anyway, there hasn’t been any time to shoot some pretty food for ya’ll but I wanted to share some quick happy snappy photos of the gallery space and the press release from the gallery with you guys. I don’t have photos from the actual opening (I was too busy talking and drinking!) but I imagine with all the people none of the work would be visible anyway!
If you find yourself on Nantucket this summer, please stop in and visit Susan to see work from myself and 3 other extremely talented artists. If you do, be sure to let me know what you think!
Have a lovely week!
I’ve sort of been down the rabbit hole lately working on some important and exciting projects. Sometimes so many things need to be done at once it’s hard to know where to start. One big project I have yet to bring to the blog will be the subject of next week’s post so stay tuned;)
This week I’m happy to say that I updated the imagery on my professional photography website. This is always a daunting task just dealing with all the files, resizing, editing and editing and (oh did I mention editing?). Once it’s done though it’s a pretty gratifying. I’m in the process of re-branding and making a new print portfolio so the updated website is the first step. It’s definitely going to be a great book!
Would love to hear what ya’ll think of the updated site. Favorite photos? Least favorite photos? It’s tough to edit your own work so I’m grateful for feedback!
Have a great week!
I’ve been wanting to shoot an entire raw octopus for a while now. I had all of these shot visions meticulously thought out, but when I got the 10 pounds of octopus back to the studio it became clear that they looked nothing like I had envisioned. So after some “hmmmmmms” and one “that’s okay!” the shoot took a turn in a new and different direction. Then I called my friend Secia from Petite Insanities to see if she wanted to hand model in an unusual capacity. As you can see, she is a pretty good sport with a strong stomach for slimy, cold, and somewhat stinky food fun. Awesomeness ensues when your mantra is PLAY WITH YOUR FOOD!!!
Interesting tidbit: Octopus is considered an aphrodisiac, go figure!
I’ll never think of “finger food” the same way again! Ok, no more puns;)
