I had the great opportunity to do a photo shoot with World Culinary Olympics gold medal winner Chef John Miller C.C.C. HE recreated a few of his winning dishes which he prepared in Belgium this past October for the competition. You can easily see why he won! Awesome talent John! 

Gear talk: I used my Nikon D800, 2 SB-600 strobes (shot through white umbrellas and 1 silver reflector umbrella), charcoal seamless paper roll and a big window of natural light for the food photos. 

I wanted to shoot for something dramatic. “Iron Chef” like. Something that made John “pop” off the backdrop and add that “hero” feel.

These will be featured in a magazine in the next month or so. Hopefully I will be able to post the links or scans from that.
