EMILY KATZ // MODERN MACRAME // MARTHA STEWART

Seriously it's like watching a spider spin a web, being in her studio and observing her in action! Go learn about her business, teaching and creative entrepreneurship (then cast your vote next month) … and enjoy my images of a her studio space and a couple other Portland haunts from this past summer.

BAKESHOP PASTRY UPDATE

This summer Kim Boyce of Bakeshop, my favorite pastry shop in Portland, is having a fruit, butter and sugar explosion!! I had the pleasure of photographing her latest swirls of laminated dough, freshly made jams, powdered sugars, cheeses, herbs and berries galore and it was insane. The level of delish was C-R-I-M-I-N-A-L. Kim, I bow to thee.

FOOD STYLING & PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP WITH ARAN GOYOAGA IN SEATTLE, SEPTEMBER 14


Aran is such a distinctive artist with food, light and photography, so it was a great honor to share the stage with her last last Spring for our workshop . . . We laughed, shared a lot and we were so inspired by the students who came -- it was a wonderful day with new friends.  We've decided to team up again.
