I’ve been shooting for the Tucson Guide for a while now, but the new March issue marks my first cover. I love shooting for the Tucson Guide because it’s a way that I can help promote the restaurants in my community. It also gives me the opportunity to experience my own town like a tourist would – through fresh eyes. Contributing food editor Edie Jarolim wrote the story. I’ve worked with her before, and she always picks really amazing restaurants and dishes. I often have to force myself to wait until I get the shot before devouring whatever they’ve placed in front of me. In fact, there have in the past been certain food items included in the article with a bite missing. In this issue I believe all of the dishes remained in tact, not for a lack of deliciousness, but as a tribute to my own restraint. You can read the entire article online starting on page 56.
