Truckin…from the road to solid bricks

I love food trucks. They’re like little treasure chests of food gathering in one spot, omitting the swank of getting dressed up and going downtown. I also love when they’re more than just burgers and fries. So when Chris and Rand (also a photographer in his own right) ,owners of Press Gourmet Sandwiches, called to say they had a new place to park and needed #foodphotography, I was more than happy to help.

A neat modern setting with a cool concept, “gourmet” sandwiches and who doesn’t like a great sandwich, much less over a dozen different ones! My challenge… 20 food photos; salads, sandwiches, sides, ASAP for the grand opening of their new store and to help me meet it, my first call was booking a food stylist who could handle the job under pressure, a tight space, short deadline, and tall order…enter Elaine Hazlet.  Food stylist Elaine Hazlet at work

We had worked together on other jobs and beside her talent, I always liked her positive, “can do” attitude.

and I knew I could re-assemble an image later for a different background, if need be… the miracles of  Photoshop .

Everything went well and beside eating some of the subjects, I got to play with them later, changing backgrounds.
