Ready to drool??

June 25, 2010

My son has a Sesame Street Diner Toy that has grover cooking something up. In his very memorable voice blurts, “Does that not look delicious!?” That’s exactly what came to mind when I stumbled across this awesome food photography site!

I hate the name they chose for the site, it’s all about being edgy I guess, even in food photography, but the imagery is mouthwatering!  The premise behind the site is very simple. Just submit your best food photography and if it makes the editors drool enough, then they’ll post your image online. It’s gotta be good though because they only post one a day. But if you love food photography, food or natural light photography, which most of it is, then you’ll love this site!

Beware of viewing this site while hungry!


Antisdels Photography – Fresh and Contemporary Portraits

March 15, 2010

About eight years ago, I was shooting portraits in Louisburg, KS and had a conversation with an older woman who told me that she had twin granddaughters who lived in Chicago, but flew into Kansas City to have their senior portraits done by a studio called Antisdels. She also told me how much they spent on senior portraits and as I recall, she said it was somewhere in the ballpark of a couple thousand dollars. I was in disbelief. I couldn’t believe someone would come that far for senior portraits and secondly that someone would pay that much for them. That was until I saw their work and have now come to realize who they are.

Antisdel’s Photography, located in Louisburg, KS, a suburb of Kansas City, is a portrait studio that specializes in children and senior portraits. They are also founders of Senior Portrait Artists, or SPA as they are more commonly known, an organization dedicated to art and business of senior portraits. 

Antisdel’s photography to me is really what senior portraits and children / family portraits are supposed to be all about. They are bright, colorful, youthful, vibrant, fresh, new, contemporary, stylish, cutting edge, emotive and the list could certainly go on and on and on. If you haven’t heard of Antisdel’s, I highly suggest checking their work out and also checking out SPA. It will be well worth your time!
