Thank you Chef Rick and Deann (and Glenn) for the best manager dinner ever! Last night at the Moon Palace, my fortune cookie read, “The joyfulness of a man prolonged his ways.” Here is a link to the cumbia covers playlist I made for the party: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL-ImBY5VB4brjamfpOBQcoO4q2zQufA0s
When I started taking the food photos, I had my nice camera but I was shooting on automatic. Our Facebook fans trolled my early menu change photos and it was embarrassing for all involved. Instead of giving up on me, Chef Rick and Deann paid for my photography classes. Chef mentored my eye for food photography from the first to the last photoshoot. THANK YOU CHEF AND DEANN for your patience, generosity and believing in me.
THANK YOU CHEFS for having me as your food photographer, for trusting me with the dishes your put so much hard work, creativity and passion into. For the rest of my life, when I put the camera to my eye and point down at the plate, my thoughts will be Chef’s lessons on how to tell the story of the food through photos. On the media team, we call it going into “Rick mode.”
