Sailing Race

 

Outside of food photography, I have a deep rooted passion for boating. Luckily for me, I was able to “seas” the day by attending a sailing race and capturing the race as it proceeded. The City Island Yacht Club holds sailing racing throughout the season, which I was very excited to attend. Though I have photographed several sporting events, I had never photographed sailing, so I didn’t know what to expect. Knowing that I loved sports and boats, I assumed that it would be a win-win for me, and it was. From the excitement of the sport itself, to the beautiful views on the water, it was an amazing experience.

 

 

Strong Rope Brewery

Eisenhower once said, “Some people wanted champagne and caviar when they should have had beer and hot dogs.” At Strong Rope Brewery, giving the people beer is an everyday occurrence, however in April, Award winning chef Louise Leonard came together with the SRB crew to make a collaborative dinner. I had met Louise Leonard at ICC, where she taught a food styling class. Coincidentally, a few weeks later, I got an email from her asking if I could photograph this dinner collaboration. The event included a four course family style meal prepared by Leonard, with beer pairings by SRB. Overall, an amazing event with great eats and good people.
