We were thrilled to be invited out to Prince Edward Island this past January to shoot Chef Michael Smith's latest cookbook.Not so thrilled about the blizzard we got caught in on our way there (see the photo below).
Once we got settled in, it was a fantastic shooting experience in the beautiful town of Bay Fortune. Michael and his wonderful team set us up in an amazing cottage right next to the studio. I really can't say enough about how great we were treated while we were out there. It felt like we were on vacation.
A few highlights for me included:
1. Drinking PEI Moonshine. 2. The endless games of ping pong. 3. Madeleine discovering a new constellation - 'the mini dipper' 4. Noah taking on the nickname of 'lettuce leaf' 5. Watching Mel go up and down the stairs from the kitchen to the shooting area 900 times.
The book won't be out until later this year, but here's a little preview of some of the shots we did:
