These are part one of a 7-piece nationwide ad campaign for the largest retailer in Switzerland. I styled and shot these a few months ago in collaboration with ad agency Jung Von Matt/Limmat. Billboards were hanging across Switzerland. Part two is set to be photographed next month.
High time to send some food photography your way! This bite comes from my friends over at Lela Cupcakes again.... they are the creators of the sweetest things.... like this little cake.... in perfect pale shades of pink and vanilla....
It's got apples in it... and poppy seeds and cranberries.... and secret magical stuff that insanely makes you go after another one immediately...!
My friends over at Lela Cupcakes have really been productive! They've been creating new delicious cupcakes with new toppings almost weekly and no, I haven't tasted or photographed them all, but almost! Just a few days ago I ate one of their mini-muffins with lemon curd topping and my husband went for a ginger cupcake. If you think that sounds yummy, well, let me tell you. They are just the perfect combination of seasonal sweetness, freshly made every day.
Check out their website. They deliver.
Have you been baking your Christmas cookies..?
It is finally out - the world's first absinthe cookbook! I had the idea to do this one a while ago and as there existed no entire cookbook devoted to absinthe yet, we ventured on this experimental journey.... not drinks, but food with absinthe! It's the first of the many books I've photographed that I'm also co-authoring, so it's very exciting!
This cookbook is a beautiful little pearl to have, to look at and to experiment with! But beware.... use absinthe only in tiny amounts..... it is meant to give the food just a bit of its perfume... and you'll be surprised how good it tastes!
Here's a simple one: Take some bread, put something in it and enjoy....
Shooting the images for these recent advertising images took a full day, though - folding napkins, checking angles, placing bread crumbs and have the food stylist add bits of lettuce and pieces of cheese, snipping away at them, placing new ones, bigger ones, smaller ones... while folding another napkin, the other way around, turning and folding it again, taking a different colored napkin, folding that one, replacing the lettuce in the meantime, replacing a piece of cheese as a consequence, adding some more butter to fill that gap...
I'll only say one more thing: patience is everything!
