I looove shooting food photography, and I feel especially great after working on healthy recipes for nutritionist Heather K. Jones. Of course I couldn’t say no when she asked for food photos of her version of the Sunshine Bowl, featured on renowned blog SkinnyTaste.
The recipe was based on a fresh dish at one of her favorite Seattle food carts. Topped with a bright yellow sunshine sauce, the Sunshine Bowl was packed with fresh vegetables, grilled chicken, and quinoa, making it a filling and nourishing meal.
Early bird catches the worm they say, but in my case, early birds (my intern Jeffrey and I) got to visit a brewing factory. Since the holiday seasons were coming up, I had been called upon by the Hong Kong Beer Co. to Christmas up their beer for some product photography. The aim was to spruce up their Facebook and Instagram content, and to have some photos on hand for general marketing. Yes, I know it’s wayyyy past Christmas by now but I love these so much I’d like to share these with you!
The passage of time is always an abstract feeling. Just a year ago, I was tasked with the job to photograph and capture the essence of Topiary’s menu. In just a blink of an eye, there we were celebrating their one year anniversary. It is more often than not that we look back at the past, but when these memories slowly line up, it is hard not to reflect on the distance we have travelled.
You know it’s a fabulous party when people keep mingling when the venue shuts its lights on you. That was what happened at the launch party for REDDIE, a new furniture brand having a temporary pop-up store at PMQ for the month of October. Though their model is entirely online, it’s great that the pop-up allows Hong Kong shoppers to see the unique and colorful combinations available on the website!
I was commissioned by Caroline Olah, the founder and designer of REDDIE, to provide event photography for the launch party at PMQ. As per my usual style for capturing events, I caught some photos of the space before guests began to arrive, candid snapshots of people mingling, and portraits of the guests. The party was so packed we filled out the space inside and outside the shop, and even spilled out to the space next door!
The star of the show was Caroline’s son Eddie, who is the name sake of her company. He was such a great mascot for the brand at such a young age! See how he posed for the paparazzi at the party in the photos below.
