While I’m primarily a portrait and wedding photographer, once in awhile, I get an assignment so far out of left field for me. On task was event coverage of a book signing and intimate lunch with American author, TV host and chef Anthony Bourdain. He was promoting his latest book “Medium Raw” and I was asked to shoot the event for the San Francisco Book Review. I nearly died! I read Kitchen Confidential years ago and have since been a fan of his show on the Travel Channel, No Reservations. The event was a Cooks with Books luncheon, held at Il Fornaio restaurant in San Francisco and sponsored by Book Passage.
