This series of photographs was inspired by classic still life paintings. I love studying the play of light on fresh food, leaves and flowers.
Pike Place market is a constant source of photographic inspiration. I pick up most of the food for my photography while strolling the stalls early
in the morning just as Seattle is waking up. I can spend hours setting up a shoot and then more time getting the light just right. It’s a constant learning process and often one of trial and error. When I get a good shot, it’s immensely satisfying. Happily, when I’m done shooting,
I get to eat my subject matter!
