Edible Brooklyn Winos
Edible Brooklyn's summer story "Stomping Grounds." The original assignment was to photograph the stores and their displays. However, last minute the editor asked if I could get some quick shots of the store owners. The interesting part of that request is that most clients pigeon hole me into being a "still-life" photographer and would be hesitant to ask me to do this. Yet, I still enjoy photographing people and if you do know me on a personal level I am a people person. I love meeting new people, especially other people that enjoy wine like I do! The ironic part of this assignment is that nothing that I was originally asked to shoot made it into the story...only the portraits. Regardless, it was fun and I met some really interesting "wine guys." Some of the Brooklyn stores included Red, White and Bubbly, Sip, Thirst and Brooklyn Wine Exchange.
