As you can imagine shooting food is a bit different from shooting portraits. It’s a challenge I quite enjoy. You may remember this little number I wrote a while back about TAPS Irvine. In September 2015, TAPS became my first official food client to include 3 TAPS locations in Brea, Irvine, and Corona as well as Lillie’s Q Brea, The Catch , and Macallan’s Public House.
TAPS was named Best Midsized Brewer in the Nation by GABF, placed 6th in the USA Today People’s Choice Awards for Best Brew Pub in the Nation and most recently, two silver and one bronze at the World Beer Cup in Philadelphia last week. Wait that’s not all! TAPS Irvine was on Orange Coast’s Orange County’s Top 10 Best New Restaurants list and I could seriously go on and on. Their accolades don’t quit. This Orange County gem is brewing some of the best craft beer in the world.
Images are used for print/web publications such as Modern Luxury, Where, and Orange Coast Magazine as well as my 2nd food cover/chef feature for Great Taste Magazine. I would love to do more of this and special thanks to Michelle Manzella for her food styling and shrimp wrangling assistance. It’s always a good time.
Here are a handful of images in no particular order.
