american lamb board

When the American Lamb Board contacted me a few months back, I was immediately psyched. Anyone who is familiar with me and my work knows that my real passion lies in the story-telling aspect of my job-- the times when I can get out of the studio and into the field, (no pun intended) and photograph the people and places that help to bring our food to the table.
The Lamb Board was looking for just this kind of thing. They wanted to tell their story, and capture a working farm, a chef butchering and cooking lamb, and some finished recipes. So, over the course of the past few weeks, I've photographed a farm in Centralia, a chef in Portland, and a lot of beautiful food in my Seattle studio.

Take a peek at a few of the shots.

Beautiful photographs!! The lambs look elegant...the farm is gorgeous, the butcher looks like he enjoys doing a perfect job. As always, your photos show the beauty, the perfection of the story you are telling with your photography, Clare. I look forward to seeing the whole book, and trying some of those delicious looking recipes.
