New Work: VegNews Magazine

The new issue of VegNews is on newsstands and I’m excited to see another one of my photos in its pages. This time around I was hired to make and shoot a recipe for Baja Cauliflower Tacos, created by chef Eddie Garza.

The process this time was a bit unique in that close to the issue’s close, the dimensions of the spread changed to accommodate a last-minute ad. That meant the styling I used for the shot didn’t quite fit into the new space.

What I landed on had to help in some way. For a while I considered traveling to shelters to photograph the animals and hopefully help them get adopted. But as someone with pretty severe allergies that didn’t seem feasible. In the end those allergies would be precisely what I’d focus on.
