The creative team at Food Network reached out to me to photograph the Key Art of New York restaurateur Willie Degel of Restaurant Stakeout and Chef Robert Irvine of Restaurant Impossible for the fall 2012 season. The creative team at FN wanted a matching campaign for each show that could stand alone or hang side-by-side for the Bryant Park Domination print and interactive placements. I shot a library of images that build on similarities between these very strong and independent talents with a direct personal connection to each. The mood board was built on strong, directional, studio lighting that would also compliment the existing Food Network branding.
