Here is my latest food photography shoot at an authentic Northern/Southern India influenced Indian restaurant in Knoxville Tennessee. The name of the restaurant is India Cuisine in the Downtown West BLVD area of Knoxville…that area could be Knoxville’s version of China Town.
This is a photo shoot I did yesterday with the Hard Knox Roller Derby Girls Team…they all rocked the photo shoot on top of the Locust Street Garage in downtown Knoxville, TN…please let me know what you think because all comments here are fundamentally loved by me.
A tour group pauses inside the Cherokee Caverns on Saturday, Feb. 9, 2013. The cave was discovered in 1854 and was once known as Gentry’s Cave.
A.D. McGhee, left, and Bob McGhee hold onto the rails, while walking through the “psychedelic vortex,” inside the Cherokee Caverns. If you ever get a chance to walk thru this vortex think twice…it put me on my ear for a good little bit afterwards.
Cave caretaker Jim Whidby pauses at the entrance to the Cherokee Caverns on Saturday, Feb. 9, 2013. The cave is celebrating 84 years of explorations. Whidby expected 400 to 500 people to have toured the cave by the end of the day.
Akiko Takayama pauses to admire the ceiling inside the Cherokee Caverns. The 1,000-square-foot cavern is believed to have been formed 96,000 to 128,000 years ago.
This stuff is righteous to look at, however being in a cave still freaks me out and I just don’t like being in them. Seeing the way back out makes me joyful.
This is the most delicious assignment I’ve had in a little while…I did not sample them all; however I did sit down at The Orangery for this very tasty treat you see first…I believe the Smoked Salmon was cooked to perfection with the slightest crunch at the end with a lemon flavor that lingered for just a couple of seconds with each bite. The poached egg was cooked to perfection as well with a creamy white and mellow yoke to ooze over the English Muffins.
These are all photos that are being used for Aunt Mahalia’s Candies located in Gatlinburg, TN. I was hired as the commercial food photographer as a freelance photographer under contract through Michael Richards Design Company located in Knoxville, Tennessee. This assignment took the better part of two days to photograph hence fourth the post editing took about one week with the end result accumulating to the current updated website for Aunt Mahalia’s Candies. I believe the food photography is a very natural part of what I enjoy doing with the gift that God has given to me through the beauty of art and 21 years working as a professional photographer. A lot of what I do is artistic and fun; however the meat and potatoes of making a living as a freelance photographer is simply being able to work with clients in a manner that is enjoyable as well as professional. Please feel free to contact me with your next photo assignment no matter how big or small…
