Join me on Saturday, May 19th!

Friends, I want to tell you a few things.

First, that glorious photo of me was taken by the amazing Gabriel Goldberg. A beautiful man who only photographs beautiful people and celebrities. Gabriel, I want to say thank you for lowering your standards by agreeing to photograph me.

Second, there is an event coming up where I will discuss the worlds of photography and social media, and it should be rather fun.

Third, the copy for this program was written by my friend and fellow Texan Kim Phipps, and please note that I would never under any circumstances refer to myself as a superstar. NEVER. Ugh! Dork? Yes. Weirdo? Yes. Funky fresh? Perhaps. But “superstar” should be reserved for those with fan clubs or discussion of Karen Carpenter songs. NOT ME. Now that I have that out of the way, let’s continue.

This event, put on by the American Society of Picture Professionals, takes place Saturday, May 19th from 9:30am to 1pm in Culver City, California. The ASPP is a community of image experts committed to sharing experiences and knowledge throughout the industry, and I’m really looking forward to a robust discussion about social media and food photography with everyone. I have absolutely no intention of standing before a crowd for 3 1/2 hours so I will be preparing a song and dance number from NBC’s recent smash “Smash”. My god I love that show.

All joking aside, I really do hope you can make it. Since this focuses on food photography and social media, it would be great to meet and hear your story about social media and how it connects us all, too. And we can talk about food photography, which is always something I could do for hours and hours until Adam tells me to wrap it up and stop talking.

And yea, he’ll be there too so you can ask some food styling questions if you have them!

    This looks amazing! But can you deliver on the visual promise of flying doughnuts?! Im going to come, especially since I need some guidance! My blog is about food, but not recipes, so lots of traditional outlets aren’t available to me… Can’t wait to learn some new things! :)
