just before thanksgiving i went and did some shooting at Lardo's main spot on Hawthorne. the chef/owner Rick Gencarelli is one of my favorite dudes in pdx. he is a super nice, really enthusiastic guys who just loves what he does. here are some of my favorites from the shoot:
there are a few spots around PDX that i would really like to shoot, and ate-oh-ate was on the top of the list. the Hawaiian joint opened up by the folks who brought you Simpatica and Laurelhurst Market were a big hold out, but i just got the call and got to spend a really fun day shooting the space and the awesome food. check em out soon if its been awhile.
i was just hired by a trade magazine out of Chicago to shoot the brand new spot, XICO. (pronounced chee-co) i can't show off the shots yet, but here is a portrait of the owners that really liked that didn't made the submission selects.
in the last few months, i have reshot Laurelhurst market and Simpatica, and then recently just shot Ate- Oh- Ate for the first time... (more on that later...) sandwich boards are a staple of business life in PDX. thought this made a cool grouping.
(a hat trick is a hockey thing. ask an east coaster, or a canadian.)
a few months ago, i was hired by Harry & David to shoot an ongoing chef collaborative they participate in. Each month a chef highlights one of H & D's products. This month, Lincoln's Jenn Louis shows off her pear skills. find it somewhere on the Facebook...
