Working with chefs are some my favorite photo-shoots. I think chefs and photographers are alike in they love what they do and they do it for other peoples enjoyment on top of their own. I’ve discussed with Andre deWaal and last night a little with Kirk Avondoglio about how they imagine/come up with dishes. They say they know what ingredients taste like so they can put them together in their mind and know if it will work or not. Amazing. But, as a photographer I can relate, somewhat. I see photos, in my head, as if it has already been taken. Last night, the photo in this post of Chefs Brad Boyle, Andre deWaal, Brian Bagley, Kirk Avondoglio and Florian Wehrli standing on the sidewalk, looking at the camera, was the one in my head since Andre first told me about it. But the photo afterwards, of everyone hanging out, getting some air and talking, ended up being my favorite. This is a heavy post, over 50 photos… but its tasty and far from boring.
