Pro Bono – Day One


Today was day one on our multi-day pro bono project for Meals on Wheels. The organization prepares and delivers food to homebound seniors, and has recently started “Cart for a Cause“.  Sponsored by Lexus, this food truck travels to different locations around Los Angeles each Tuesday and features cuisine prepared by L.A.’s most notable chefs from the areas top restaurants. For $10 diners get a meal, drink, and cookie with all proceeds going to support the program that has fed thousands of seniors for over 30 years.

This year the organization is creating a cookbook with recipes of the food created and served by L.A.’s “top chefs” on the Cart for a Cause food truck. So we climbed on board and offered our services to help the project. Over the next month or two we’ll be photographing the participating chefs as well as their featured recipe for the final cookbook.

Today we were at EVA with Chef Mark Gold and Nic’s with Chef Larry Nicola.

Look out for the cookbook later this year, or for the cart .. every Tuesday (location and chef information updated on their website).

Runner’s World Magazine – B.Q. or Die Feature Article

B.Q. or Die - Feature Article for Runner's World MagazineLast month we were asked to do a series of photographs for Runner’s World Magazine. It was for a feature article on the obsession of earning a qualifying time for the Boston Marathon. I have to be honest… I am not a runner… but working on this feature was a lot of fun anyway. The only running I did was in and out of traffic to get a shot (that ultimately was not used – isn’t that how it always goes?) And strangely enough not a single shot we did was of anyone running! The creatives at RW pitched five or six concepts and let me run with them (pun… intended). They settled on four and are published in the current issue (May 2011). The article can be found online however only one of the images appears in the online version (the same one that leads the article in printed form). To see the others in all their glory, you’ll need to get the May 2011 printed issue… or you can also see them in our “Clients” section of the web site by hovering over “Runner’s World“.
