Help support Ryan to start his project on healing foods with his trip to Dubai!
I’m a food photographer who believes strongly in the connection of food and spirit. I have a passion for food and it’s loving preparation. I shoot about 30 restaurants a year for Lehigh Valley Good Taste. I’ve been a photographer for 25 years shooting for clients such as Crayola, Lehigh University, and other commercial clients. I have also given back to the photography community by teaching at the Banana Factory, Dan’s Camera City, Northampton Community College, the Pasela Program, UnSeenAmerica, and Faces of South Side with Broughal Middle School.
I have been developing a personal project about Healing traditions with food and I am making my first pilgrimage to start shooting in Dubai in March. There I plan on going into 3 kitchens and taking photos of traditional cooking.
The kitchen is the center of the home and the heart. If you want insight into a culture take a look at their food. When friends and family entered my mother’s home the first thing asked was, “Have you eaten?” Feeding friends and guests is our family tradition of showing love and respect.
In my travels and experience as a photographer when a family invites you to eat, never refuse.
