Full Time Food Photography

It’s been over a year since I started working for Waitr. First as a contractor, now as a full-time employee. Back in school we had a couple food photography assignments, but I never thought I was going to be pursuing it as a career. Maybe as a side-gig, I had done a couple professionally prior to Waitr.

Shoot for the Stars

Sometimes when you shoot for the stars, you land back here on earth in the middle of a thunderstorm with lightning crackling everywhere you look.

Unfortunately I got got there rather later than I had planned so I didn’t get to enjoy much of these other offerings before they started setting … Read more

After explaining that we were photo students studying for a test, she revealed that she had an interest in modeling. So we swap information with the idea of doing a photo shoot at some point. But life goes on, we both get distracted and nothing ever really comes of it until a couple months ago when she contacted me about … Read more
