food, portrait, editorial
804ork was a limited edition book that fell in my lap at just the right time when I had started being an "actual" photographer, sort of on the side, but still shot mostly medium format film cameras. A dream assignment at that time: go shoot the best chefs in Richmond (area code 804, hence the name), their restaurants, and their food. The last shot on this page became the cover of a second book. It’s not sharp - I had been shooting at 1/10th to capture a bartender's movement when this sweet little moment happened - but it emotes. And that's everything. I admired the shit out of Editor and Creative Director, Carrie Fleck-Walters, for selecting it as the cover.
