A look at my first food photography and eCookbook photo shoot with Liz of The Lemon Bowl.

12 Most Popular Protein Smoothie Recipes eCookbook Cover InstagramPINIMAGE

At the end of 2015, my long time friend and client, Liz of The Lemon Bowl, approached me about photographing her first eCookbook: 12 Most Popular Protein Smoothies. Liz, a food and travel blogger, had previously been shooting all her photographs herself since starting the blog back in 2010.

A couple months prior I asked Liz where she got all of the photos that appeared on her website. Stock images, google, some food photography image bank? I had no idea. There was a long pause before her response. She said nicely, “Raul, these are all my original recipes. I can’t go to Google and find a photo of my personal recipe.” This is the part where I started to realize I asked a really stupid question. She goes on, “I take all of my own photos. (smiles)”.

A few weeks later, Liz asked if I was still on board. Immediately I responded with, “YES! Of course!” I was super pumped for the opportunity and excited about the new challenge of food photography.  If you’ve followed Liz for a while now, you’ll notice she has beautiful photos on her blog. It was an honor to be asked to take on such a huge responsibility and continue the tradition of creating beautiful food photography for her website. Without further ado I’d like to share a photo from each of the 12 recipes Liz handcrafted herself for her first smoothie eBook. The eBook is completely free too.

I highly recommend you make your way to the shared link and download the smoothie eCookbook. I mean it’s free! I would like to add one final thing. It was incredible working with Liz on this project. I will admit that it was much harder to shoot food than what I imagined. I’ve learned a lot about the art of food photography in the past few months and have a lot more to learn yet. The challenge has been extremely rewarding and best of all, I get to eat all the recipes after I shoot them!
