As a food and still life photographer, I work with clients to communicate the love, passion and craft that go into every project. My images focus on the natural beauty, striking colors and distinctive textures of food and objects. I collaborate with each client to ensure the message and vision they want to share are clear and vivid.
Growing up in rural Germany, I lived a farm-to-table experience. My grandmother would wash muddy carrots, pluck feathers from freshly slaughtered chickens, and cook the game that my grandfather, an avid hunter, brought home. The rich smells from the stove are still a lovely memory for me. The gift of a camera at an early age sparked a new passion, which I explored further in high school, and eventually brought me to New York City to earn a master’s degree in fine art photography.
I fell in love with food and still life photography during the five years I spent as an in-house photographer and designer for the Rubin Museum of Art, where I had the opportunity to photograph Chef Eric Ripert’s menu for the museum’s annual gala and to capture the most precious artifacts in its collection. Inspired by that work, I opened my photo studio in New York City in 2010.
