My Interview on Photo Argus
A couple of weeks ago Tim Kok with The Photo Argus reached out from Flickr to ask if he could interview me for this beautiful site. I actually thought it was a bit of a hoax! Who would want to interview me? And for The Photo Argus no less! If you don’t know this site, I hope you will not only click the link below to read the interview, but take a bit of time to click through their site. It is full of inspiring interviews and images from other photographers. They also post tips and little tutorials. So worth the time.
I did respond to Tim and he did post the interview. I’m thrilled of course and it prompted me to look back on my photography to determine exactly when I was bit by the food photography bug. It was 2014 and I was involved in one of Kim Klassen’s year long classes. She had had a breakfast prompt and I worked on a blueberry muffin project. I was hooked. After that every prompt I decided to make it food focused. The picture above was a prompt for high key and back lit. It was not hugely popular with the group but I still enjoy it as I think it speaks to my desire to celebrate and bring out the details of food, embrace the texture, tell the story with contrast, and perhaps with a little drama.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
