Last week, I received a call from Bryce, the owner of Blue Moon Fish Company – one of Lauderdale By The Sea’s greatest eating establishment. We made an appointment to discuss his vision of how he wanted to see the food in his world-class restaurant portrayed. Once he related to me the warmth and the textures he wanted to convey through my images, I instantly knew exactly how I wanted to light and shoot these photos. I couldn’t wait to get started! As I tend to do the day of a photo shoot, I arrived a little early to scout things out and was floored by the number of people eating there – well after the lunch hour. After most of the patrons left, lights and cameras were set up and I went to work. Bryce styled all his own dishes himself and did an amazing job, I might add. The entire staff at this restaurant go out of their way to give their patrons an enjoyable dining experience. Bryce and restaurant manager George Karathanas are two of the nicest guys you’d ever want to meet and the food there is just incredible. I’ll bet that if you have lunch or dinner at Blue Moon and mention that you saw and loved my images, those guys will buy you a drink. And if they don’t, I will!
