CORDOVA, ALASKA (PHOTOGRAPHS BY BRIAN SAMUELS - A THOUGHT FOR FOOD)

I hemmed and hawed: do I write something or should I let the images speak for themselves? As a photographer, you hope that your pictures are strong enough to tell the whole story. When shooting a restaurant, it’s possible to do this. A five day trip to Alaska, however, is more challenging. While I want to give these images some context, to provide a play by play of the week’s events would result in an epic entry.  So, I’ll try to keep things concise.

Cordova is located 160 miles southeast of Anchorage. It is only accessible by plane or boat, which, surprisingly, doesn’t seem to effect tourism as much as one would expect. The population, I was told, is approximately 6,000. That number, however, decreases significantly, to 2,500, during the winter months.  Salmon fishing is their main industry, with an estimated 480 drift gillnet permits participating this summer. In addition, there are local and state organizations developed to assist the fisheries and preserve the area’s natural resources, such as the Copper River Watershed Project, which “works to foster the health of the Copper River watershed’s salmon-based communities, economies and cultures.” In addition, there’s the Department of Fishing and Gaming, which “manages approximately 750 active fisheries” and “foster[s] the highest standards of scientific integrity and promote innovative sustainable fish and wildlife management programs to optimize public uses and economic benefits.” You will also see some images of a fish and game sonar station, located near Child’s Glacier and the Million Dollar Bridge (also featured in the post), where, over the course of the season, three researchers each work eight hour shifts to track the salmon and other wildlife that pass through the river.

There are five different species of wild Alaskan salmon: King (aka Chinook), which is red in color and high in omega-3s, Sockeye, pictured below at the salmon filleting demo, Coho (aka Silver), which are a bright orange-red color, and Chum and Pink, both of which are less oily and not as flavorful (making them the least profitable).

Walking down the streets of Cordova, you’ll see folks waving at each other.  Towards the end of my time there, this happened on quite a few occasions. I’d be in town and would see someone I’d met the day before. Big hellos and hugs. Friendly. Welcoming. I’d never thought that Cordova, being as remote as it is, would be a place I’d feel connected to. But that’s exactly how I felt: like a part of a community. And it’s one that I hope to return to in the future.

Summer is most certainly here. No doubt about it. All I’m craving right now are things that don’t involve the stove.

I recently photographed this spread of raw dishes from local restaurants for our alternative magazine, the Improper Bostonian. I wish I could take credit for the beauty of these images, but all of that goes to the talented chefs who prepared them: Will Gilson of Puritan (vegetable crudités), Rachel Klein of Liquid Art House (hamachi), Robert Sisca of Bistro du Midi (lamb tartar), Todd Winer of Pastoral (albacore crudo), Cassie Piuma of Sarma (Tunisian steak tartar), Leo Asaro of Tico (razor clam ceviche).

Some notes from Michael Oxton, Co-founder of Night Shift Brewing:

 

  • “We began business in March 2012 at our previous location in Everett. Started with 3 beers – Trifecta, Taza Stout, and Bee Tea. Added Viva Habanera to the lineup soon after.”
  • “We produced 350 barrels in 2012, over 700 barrels in 2013, and are on pace for 1500+ this year. Hoping to hit at least 2000 next year.”
  • “Our most popular beer and the one we produce most regularly is our rye ale with habanero peppers, Viva Habanera. Our most popular beer at the taproom right now is Ever Weisse, a berliner weisse style sour ale with strawberries, kiwis, and hibiscus.”
  • “I think the Viva Habanera might fall into most eccentric, actually. It’s at least up there. We have a whole series of beers, the“Art Series” dedicated to pure experimentation. Some are test batches that might become larger production beers, some are one-time experimentals. It’s all about achieving balance and producing a high-quality beer, and hopefully having fun in the process.”

It’s hard to find the words to express what an amazing experience this last Potluck was. For those who have never attended, I like to describe it as a non-conference conference. Yes, there are keynote speakers. Incredible ones, in fact. The topics, however, are not traditional. Instead of covering SEO and monetization, the themes at the Big Traveling Potluck are much bigger, forcing us to look at ways to improve our lives, and, thus, our writing and photography.

I had the pleasure of being the official photographer for the Potluck. This was the third I’ve photographed and it was such a wonderful experience. I hope these pictures illustrate the love, the passion, and all the incredible food.

A few weeks ago I was asked by KitchenSurfing to photograph a pop up dinner they helped organize with local chefs Samuel Monsour and Mark O’Leary. The idea behind the dinner was to have them present their take on junk food: Fritos with duck, Brussels sprouts, and blue cheese. Handi-snack with foie gras, pear and Campari. A Snickers bar stuffed with chicken liver, viet caramel, and peanuts. And a Filet-O-Fish with crab, uni, and squid ink buns. There were six dishes total, each paired with wine, beer, and cocktails.

There will be more of these “The Future of Junk Food” events throughout the year, so if you’re in the area, I highly recommend checking out one of these memorable dinners.

Bronwyn (Somerville, MA) | A Thought For Food

Last week, I was asked to photograph Bronwyn, a Somerville restaurant that opened last year, for Tasting Table.  Tim Wiechmann’s other restaurant, TW Food, is one of my favorites, so this was on my list of places to check out. The food looked wonderful and I was impressed by their extensive beer selection (I’m going to have to get the name of the beer I photographed because it was fantastic, and, while I like beer, I’m usually not one to go crazy over it).  Here are some of the dishes that are featured: a parsnip soup, their (enormous) pretzel, spatzle, and bratwurst. The decor is really fun as well and it was a lot of fun using their rustic tables as a backdrop.

When I first started off as a photographer, I didn’t have much in the way of equipment. I had a camera and a lens. That was it. I’d pack everything up in a messenger bag or backpack and head off to whatever restaurant or engagement photo session I was doing. It didn’t take long for me to realize I needed a real camera bag. I did some research and found one that I thought would work for me. It could fit a body, a couple of lenses, and my laptop. Seemed perfect. After a few months, though, the thing started to rip. Now, I’m partially to blame for this. I packed it with more than it could handle. I traveled with it and abused it in ways I shouldn’t have. But, for many reasons, that bag just wasn’t right for me.  I needed something that was durable, but because I was doing a lot of location shoots, I wanted something that was stylish too.

ONA bags aren’t just good looking (which they are… most people have no idea it’s for camera equipment), but they comfortably fit everything one needs for a shoot. Over the last couple of months, I’ve taken the bag with me on countless projects and it has been a wonderful experience. Each compartment wraps snuggly around anything you put in… camera bodies, lenses, flashes. Unlike my other bag, which could only handle a body and a couple of lenses, the ONA Camps Bay camera bag I have handles 2 bodies (a 7D and 5D), 4 lenses (50mm, 17-40mm, 24-70mm, 100mm), a battery charger, a laptop and iPad, as well as all necessary cables. Yes, the bag got a little heavy, but I never felt like it couldn’t handle the weight.

I brought the bag with me on a shoot at Coppa. My friend (and local business owner) Abby was nice enough to come out in the cold to help with taking pictures. Without her, I think it would have been a challenge to capture the whole process. Thanks Abby!

Disclosure: The folks at ONA were kind enough to send me this bag to try out. I was not monetarily compensated for this post and all opinions are my own.
