The RCYC was launching a new event for winter. An “Oyster and Martini” night. So I was happy when they asked me to do some photos of oysters for the marketing of the event. Here’s my favourite shot from the day.
Chef Rory White asked me to help out on a small food shoot for an upcoming event. He was preparing a veal dish and my goal was to shoot some nice angles to showcase his work.
Are you hungry yet?
My regular day job at the Royal Canadian Yacht Club gives me the opportunity to do some different types of photography. One of them being food. I love food – eating it and photographing it. I just wish I could cook so I could spend more time doing both.
Today I’m relying on the chefs to bring out a couple of their new menu items. First up was a duck dish that I must say was quite yummy (I got a chance to taste test after the shoot was over).
Second was a Shrimp Po’boy served with a side salad.
I think the members here at the club will definitely enjoy both these dishes. I know I did. 😉
I went out to Costco this morning to pick up some supplies and they had a sale on jumbo shrimp so I decided to pick some up. Little did I know how jumbo they were.
These were the size of my hand! I couldn’t believe how large they were (or how tasty!). I had to get a shot before I devoured them. 🙂
I started off with this idea of shooting a lemon and its reflection on the dining room table.
Then I got the brilliant idea of telling its story.
Lemon was feeling pretty happy having found a family it could fit in with. It was nothing out of the ordinary just a yellow lemon plucked from its tree at an early age before being shipped across the continent and finding a place to spend its days. No one expected much from Lemon but one day Lemon would show them how great it really was. Soon, however, a turn of events would bring Lemon’s life to a sudden close.
Stay tuned to future posts to find out what happens next.
Today I was to take photos of the Yacht Club kids and Santa but before that shoot I stopped to take some photos of the food that was set out for the Family Brunch. All the yummy gooies were laid out on tables awaiting the kids and their parents to come and annihilate the food before them. I didn’t get a chance myself to try out any of these but my first pick would have been the Seared Tuna on pita bread smothered in hummus.
Doesn’t that just look yum? On the desert side of things you could find cookies and other sweets but what really caught my eye was the fruit dish that they had put together. The colours alone pulled me towards them and I had to resist taking some.
Turning away from all these goodies I ventured up the stairs to the third floor to prep for the kids and their parents to arrive.
