Girl Hunter Promo Video & Buttermilk Fried Rabbit Recipe

This past Summer we traveled to Texas to film Georgia Pellegrini’s promo video for her new book, Girl Hunter. We were thrilled to be able to have the opportunity to work with Georgia. Have you heard of Georgia and her accomplishments or visited her site? If not, you should, she is amazing.

Georgia graduated from Harvard and worked in finance at Lehman Brothers in New York City. But something drew her to food and so she left finance and entered culinary school at The French »

My New Camera Bag with Purpose and Meaning

My New Camera Bag with Purpose and Meaning

My life mission to find the most meaningful things, people and events is long and continually expanding. From meeting inspiring heroes to finding the perfect light for a shoot, I’m always searching and scribbling down my finds before I lose those thoughts. On this list is also finding the best camera bags for my field work and travel.

I’m very particular when it comes to finding camera bags, particularly when it comes to my shooter bags that I need to access so much during busy »

Video: Michael Ruhlman Had Something To Say: Humor, Profanity

Video: Michael Ruhlman Had Something To Say: Humor, Profanity

Before any finger wagging and tsking gets directed towards Michael over the title of the latest “Had Something to Say”, we’d like to stand up and say we are to blame.  Or at least raise our hand, since we are writing this post while lying in bed at the end of the night. I think we took the only curse he muttered in the entire time of filming all of this series and made it into the title.

Michael Ruhlman Had Something to Say: The Dance

Michael Ruhlman Had Something to Say: The Dance

Michael had something to say again. Previously he shared personal thoughts about cooking and how to not be an asshole, then followed up with a second, eloquent insight on Chef Thomas Keller.

It’s hard not to be fascinated by Ruhlman’s ideas. Whether or not someone shares his views, his thoughts are provoking. We find ourselves drawn into his pensive mind and want to know more.  That is why we teamed up with him to do this video series.

Make sure you head over to Michael’s »

The Courage of Ideas – Video: Michael Ruhlman Had Something To Say

We’ve always been drawn to hubs of ideas. Terrific thoughts that are different and that pull us from our everyday norm. Ideas that  inspire and stimulate us, lighting a spark which leads to inspiring creative outbursts, open minds to different perceptions, challenging viewpoints and standards. Without them we’d be bored beyond imagination, and we don’t like to be bored.

Moments of inspiration that ignite a fabulous idea can come often, but it takes courage to follow through with them, especially if they’re ideas that challenge your skills, »
