My Interview on The Photo Argus

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.

The link is HERE.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

  2. How cool to have your photography go to the next level. I am thrilled for you and your food photography. I know only good things will come from you in whatever you do. I will check the link as I don’t know this one. I am sure you did a wonderful interview. And by the way popular is overrated…..I love the image. It is like being back in high school. Have a great week.

    How awesome, and how well deserved – no surprise to me your food photography is being noticed and revered your work is spectacular because not only are you a wonderful photographer, you have a deep respect for and love of food- From what I have read, many food stylists use things to make the food camera ready, making it inedible, I know from having eaten so many of your wonderful dishes that you are actually taking pics of food you are about to eat – there is an honor in that. Congratulations!! Well deserved, JBV

  5. What a great interview and so great to see many more of your images! Just realized you are on instagram so am following you now! Thanks always for your inspiration!!
