When Jane Sherman asks you if you can photograph five hot shot chefs for Seattle Met’s annual” Next Hot Chefs” feature, you say YES!. The brief, individual environmental portraits of five chefs all photographed at one of their favorite foodie spots in town. Incredibly, all five made room in their schedules to work with me, and even more surprisingly, their favorite bars/restaurants/food havens opened their doors to us for the sittings.
We decided to add some video content to what was primarily a stills shoot of dancer, Erika Quan. This wasn't the music she was dancing to, but the slow motion really required something a little more smooth.

These are some fun portraits I made a little while ago and with the help of my gracious subject Joshua Efterfield and stylist Sierra Stinson. Sierra is the founder and curator of Vignettes Gallery which hosts some fantastic shows.
