On my way back from the west coast in April I made a quick 36 hour stop in Indianapolis to shoot Milktooth for Food & Wine's Best New Chefs. Its such a little gem of a place set in an old auto body shop. I really loved the whole crew that worked there and the food is fab! Jonathan and Ashley are the most lovely people and so talented. Super well deserved on all the great press they've been receiving. If you are ever in Indy you gotta go check them out!

How lame am I? I meant to share these images ages ago but time got away from me. Better late then never. I shot the amazingly talented Matt Dick of Small Trade Co. last August in San Francisco's Mission District. The images ran in the Volume 16 of Kinfolk. I met Matt through my friend Adele of Voices of Industry whom shared the amazing studio spaces that Heath hosts for a select group of creatives. Matt's studio space is beyond inspiring and I got sucked in immediately. Read his full interview below.
As part of Best New Chefs this year I was commissioned to shoot two of the restaurants included in Food & Wine's yearly selection. Zoi Antonitsas chef of Westward in Seattle was part of the talented bunch. Westward is located on the water with a gorgeous view of downtown Seattle. The Mediterranean inspired menu encompasses lots of fresh local seafood set in a beautiful nautical setting. Grab a seat outside in one of the adirondack chairs by the fire pit and watch the sunset with a dozen oysters and a bottle of rose, you wont be bummed.
Back in May I shot the lovely Athena Calderone in her gorgeous Amagansett home for Club Monaco. Check out Athena's post on Eyeswoon for full recipes and more details.
