Rob Lawler and Truffle Table { Hudson Valley Headshot Photographer }

A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to go shoot some food shots for Truffle Table here in Hudson Valley.  It’s a great little wine and cheese restaurant. They have a wide selection of wines, and then they have this completely fantastic selection of cheeses.  I shouldn’t say that’s all they have, because in reality they have a ton of other items on their menu, which are all delicious.

First up is the headshot, which again, no surprise is one of my favorite shots of the day.  After working with Rob all day, I really wanted to get a portrait of him.  I really liked his character.  He was humble, nice, and passionate about the food he was serving.  I always love watching people work when they real

Kerryn came in honestly not completely sure exactly what she was after.  No worries from me.  We worked together to get some great portraits of her.  Honestly, quite a few people come to me, wanting to get a great portrait of themselves with just a bit of a fashion flare.  That’s what I love abo

If you’re looking for a great [Hudson Valley food photographer]( Valley-food-photographer.aspx), you should really check out my portfolio.  While I do mostly shoot fashion, I have a real love for food photography.  It’s probably because I grew up cooking, and have always has a passion for great food.

I finally have some breathing room to get caught up on my blogging.  Expect to see a bunch of stuff that I’ve worked on lately.  One of the things that I’ve been working on lately is updating my food portfolio.  I want to branch out a bit, and start booking more work for that market segment.  I have to be honest though,… really what I love is taking pictures o

Playing around with my food photography again Hudson Valley Food Photographer

I’ve been trying to branch out a little bit with my photography work lately.  At the end of the day I’m still a portrait artist.  That will always be my number one passion, but if I’m going to make a real run at photography then I need to diversify a bit.  It’s a hard business out there, and the more avenues I have for making money, the better.  Of course it’s not 100% just about money, the areas that I’m branching into are also areas that I love as well.

In a lot of ways I grew up a cook, and at various points in my life I’ve seriously considered going to culinary school.  Cooking for a living is probably on par with the level of difficulty as being a photographer.  Th

Hudson Valley Photographer Film, Friends, and a Leica in Breckenridge

I haven’t really been posting enough of my personal stuff on my blog.  I hope this gives you a better impression of me as a person in general.  These are all film shots from a trip I took up to Breckenridge Czech Republic with a big group of my friends.  I think what I love most about these shots is how much fun they were to take.

Every year my group of friends gets a house up in the mountains to go, drink, and have fun at.  It’s really a blast of a time, and these are people that I truly love.

All these shots were done on film.  I think real film is just the perfect medium for an experience like this.  It already has that nostalgic feel to it, which makes it so much fun to look back on these shots, as a perfect representation of that time in your life.  Most of this is on Tri-x with a few of the shots on Kodak Gold.  Which is frankly an underrated film.  When you expose it correctly and have it professionally developed it can be a truly wonderful film stock.
