KOSTA BROWNE + CELEBRITY CHEFS
Some photoshoots feel like bank heists and this recent shoot with Kosta Browne was definitely one of those. A few years back they asked me to photograph the food at one of their annual celebrity chef events, a multi course tasting dinner paired with their best wines, but back then I couldn’t figure out a way to do it well. As the event date approached this year, I thought about it again. Between each chef prepping their complex dishes throughout the day and the tasting course schedule of the event, I already knew the one thing that I wouldn’t have: TIME....
With some logistics planning, a few sacrifices and a great team, we were able to pull off this shoot during a high profile event without the guests even knowing the photo team was there. Each dish shot and chef portrait took under 8 minutes to create. Here’s to more photoshoot heists.
