“It’s Totally About the Pears Here”


Ed Gowans is a professional food and beverage photographer and the subject of this four-and-a-half-minute video “The Art of Food Photography”, episode 19 of Cooking Up A Story, an online video series dedicated to the pleasures of gastronomy.

It’s interesting to see Ed work with his food handler and client from the Pear Bureau as they quickly alternate between food preparation and lighting. A little morsel tuck here, a slight lighting adjustment there and, boy, I’ve got to admit, those seared pears sure look delicious by the end of the shoot!
