I’m happy to have written and photographed my first feature article for Edible Baja Arizona Magazine that includes a bunch of my super easy summer recipes inspired by Sonoran food classics, including these baked Carne Asada Tostadas with guacamole and pickled red onions.

I have two features in this month’s Edible Baja Arizona Magazine. For “The Plate” I selected and photographed four local dishes that should never be taken off of the menu. The Mexican street corn at NOX and the Charcuterie plate at Zona 78 are two of my picks. Visit the Edible Baja website to read the article and see the rest.

Haile Thomas is an 11 year old chef who has been honored by Michele Obama’s “Let’s Move” campaign at the White House for her efforts to teach kids about healthy eating. I photographed three of the young chef’s healthy recipes for her column, “Halie’s Swaps”.

I’m  a guest writer/photographer for heart-stoppingly beautiful new magazine about rural culture, Broadway+Thresher. Here’s a link to the article, featuring my photos and the recipe I developed for “Fennel, Blue Cheese & Spanish Chorizo Mini Pizzas”: http://broadwayandthresher.com/food-and-drink/2012/10/15/forage-for-fennel-bleu-cheese-and-chorizo-pizza

Burger Fever

September 3, 2011

There are some crazy – big burgers in this town and I was elected to photograph them. I was more than a little surprised by what I found.

 

The magazine printed this amazing Mac & Cheeseburger as a vertical spread in the centerfold. I turned it for better web viewing. I usually at least taste all of the food that I photograph, but I found this one a little too daunting to even consider eating.

The burger on the right features three burgers, and onion rings between two grilled cheese sandwiches.

 

 

 

And here is the song that goes along with this post:

Yes, I Did Eat Menudo

November 16, 2010

I was a little worried, because the menudo I’d had in the past was awful. Greasy and of questionable origin. Plus, it’s tripe. But, when I’m on assignment, I always like to taste the food I’m photographing. So, I was determined to give the menudo at Teresa’s Mosaic cafe a try. It was delicious! Not greasy at all, and they serve the menudo spices on the side so you can make it as hot as you like. And speaking of hot, they garnished the margarita with a jalapeno in addition to the usual salt and lime. It was the perfect combination of salty, sweet and spicy.

White menudo with all of the fixings.

I’m thrilled to have been selected a runner up in Saveur Magazine’s cover contest.  Five images were selected from over 900 entries.

I’ve been photographing portraits of southern Arizona artists for Phoenix Home & Garden Magazine for many years now. Here are a few of of my favorites:

Here are a couple of portraits I shot of navajo poet Sherwin Bitsui for Poets & Writers Magazine. You can read the article in the November/December issue:

Dieting In Russia

May 8, 2009

I’ve got a photo published in the Russian version of Cosmopolitan. It seems to be a story about not wanting to be tempted by delicious cake while on a diet. Here is the photo they published. You can read (or just look at) the article here: http://www.cosmo.ru/your_life/you/670563/

A while back Diane Kashy and the folks at Madden sent me out into the night to find and photograph plants that only bloom by the light of the moon. I wandered my neighborhood and the grounds at Hacienda del Sol which is an old boarding school turned into an inn. Here is a link to the article which is running this month in Tucson Home Magazine.
