Food Photography Raleigh NC

Last week I was given the opportunity to do some photography for a new restaurant that is opening in Raleigh soon. Iyla’s Southern Kitchen will be located in downtown Raleigh’s Morgan Street Food Hall & Market at 411 West Morgan Street.  The restaurant will be homemade Southern cooking by Chef Greg Nelson.  Some of the wonderful menu items will be Shrimp & Grits, Fried Chicken & Waffle Sandwich, Smoked Cheddar Mac & Cheese with Pulled Pork, Collard Greens & BBQ Sauce Drizzle and Loaded Tots with Pimento Cheese. Here are some of the photos that were taken........

Architectural Photography - Charlotte

I really enjoy doing architectural photography as it often gets me to think out of the box a bit and it takes my back to my first attempt at photographing buildings for college projects. This project was to shoot interiors for a commercial furniture company called Allsteel in Charlotte. The shoot actually took place at an architect firm's office - ADW. The idea was to promote the company's furniture in a real working space. We shot a mixture of the space with and without people. I've recently started to enjoy adding people to building photography as I think it adds another dimension to the photography. It also shows the lifestyle that people can enjoy in the space. Here are some of the photos from the commercial photography project in Charlotte NC.
