Vancouver BC – Portland, Oregon Food Scene

March 9th, 2016

One of my favorite thing about editorial photography is the opportunity to visit new places. This past December I had the opportunity to do an editorial assignment photographing the food scene in Vancouver B.C. for Via Magazine. Here are a few samples:

Meanwhile, back home, right here in my own neighborhood in Portland I photographed at Portland Monthly’s Restaurant of the Year, Coquine.

Of course one of the great perks of being a food photographer for editorial assignments, is often once done, you get to eat! Another reason I’m trying to drop some pounds now. (sadface)
