Chef Noah Schwartz

I recently had the opportunity to travel to the north fork of Long Island to the town of Greenport, NY to shoot for one of the Vibrant Rioja AD campaigns. Despite a rough ferry ride from CT to Orient Point with heavy rain and wind, the following morning cleared and we were able to do two location shoots with Chef Noah Schwartz of Noah’s, who graciously agreed to model for us on his one day off. Here are a couple of my favorite portraits of Noah as well as his delicious food and wine pairings prepared back at his restaurant in downtown Greenport.

Independence Day

It’s been a while since I have posted, but not for a lack of shooting. I’m really looking forward to tonight’s shoot—a benefit for the Thomas Cole House in Catskill, NY under the Rip Van Winkle Bridge. Many more food shots to come and weddings too! But for now a cool drink on a hot day…
