You didn’t think I had vanished from the face of the earth now did you? I’ve just been incredibly swamped with work ever since the new Year started. It’s weird, wonderful and a little troubling too. (knock on wood) It could be over next month, so I am taking everything I can to make up for possibly leaner times coming soon. The funny thing is too that I spend more time working in the studio then ever before… It must be a sign of some sort.
I thought I entertain you with a couple of shots from recent shoots I did. I’m getting more and more food assignments which is good news as that – ultimately – is what I want to do. Next week is again going to be really busy with on monday a shoot with a man who tries to get schoolkids to eat healthier by educating them about growing their own in small city garden, on Tuesday I am in the studio together with a food stylist shooting for a producer of a sustainable substitute for tuna, on Wednesday product shots, on Thursday I have the second day of shoots for a restaurant in Arnhem where we will do the desserts and a la carte menu and on Friday I am giving a workshop.. And that’s the week over again. Well except for the portrait shoots on Saturday.. 🙂
And because Tom is still unemployed he has been doing most of the cooking so not a lot of recipes to share. I miss actually coming up with new recipes and even though we have eaten really well and delicious, because of the terrible light at night I haven’t shot any of them. But there will be recipes soon again!
In the meantime we’re also shopping around for a new kitchen, which is fun and frustrating at the same time. We are going to make the kitchen a bit bigger and according to all the sales guys we have a really big kitchen. We don’t think so, as a kitchen can never be too big right?
I can’t give you the exact details of the kitchen but the color setting will be fairly similar to the one above. The wall will be light and the flour will be wooden but the cupboards will be fairly similar and the counter will be slightly less dark (but still stone). It’s a lot of work figuring out all the details while still trying to stay within budget and convincing the salesguys that we do NOT want to spend any more… O well, within the next two weeks, we will probably make the final decision so I’ll let you know once I have the details! And then you think you’re done you still have to figure out what to put on the wall and the floors… *sigh* But it’s all for the greater good!
So no recipe from me this time but there will be one next time!
