ABOUT MEG

Before honing in on food photography,

I pursued photography as art [while working at MoMA] and freelanced for small newspapers such as C-Ville [CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA] and StarNews [WILMINGTON, NC]. I shot portraits, community events, and was frequently sent to cover concerts of all genres from James Browne to Train. As photographers who lean towards journalism often do, I also booked a few weddings. [Below you can see a handful of my favorite shots from my previous website, if you’re interested.]

So you may ask, “Why food, now?”

In the midst of this photo work, I have also been cultivating knowledge about many kinds of food in kitchens like Magnolia, Frenchie’s DC, Seasonal Pantry, Maketto, and Scratch. What started as baking overnight to pay rent in New York [where I ended up after attending the School of Visual Arts] evolved into some kind of unexpected love. For a while, it seemed necessary to choose a single area of focus, which ultimately meant to relegate the other to side-hustle status.

Recently I realized, it’s a false dichotomy. Shooting and writing about food wraps my skills and interests into a tidy, deliverable package. I’d love nothing more than to visualize your story for others through food and culture.
