i recently got back in touch with an old friend from jersey, mike gross, who as it turns out has become a pretty badass photographer in nyc. (click on his name and check him out - but then come back.) since we both shoot alot of food, i thought it would be fun to pick random food items, shoot em and compare. ( keeping the proverbial claws sharp while the assignments weren't rolling in.)
normally i think this sort of thing might be like putting two cats in a closet, but seeing as how we are 3000 miles apart i think the friendly competition can stay friendly.
he was down, so this is our first go at it. this is my take on mirepoix. you can see his shot on his blog. apparently he just recruited one of his photo buddies in japan to join in. stay tuned for pizza shots later this week.
we will be calling the project Catching the Ox, and a full website will be following soon, but for now, stay tuned for updates here...
