I commuted to Atlantic City for a photoshoot with Celebrity Chef Bobby Flay in order to promote the opening of his new restaurant Bobby Flay Steak at the Borgata casino.
When I photograph subjects with food, the problem is that the food is normally too small too hold. Holding larger objects while being photographed, no matter who it is or what they are, gives more dominance to the portrait. In my opinion, Bobby is taken more seriously as a celebrity chef when he has a giant lobster in his hands, as oppose to a small plate of steak. Above everything else, Bobby is a power leader in his industry with a high reputation, and as his photographer, I have a responsibility to uphold this.
