Unconventional Photo Shoot

Chris McBride

This past week the Alta Editions team went back into the studio to work on capturing images for our upcoming cookbook, Unconventional. As with our previous books we've assembled an amazing team to help bring this book from concept to reality and the photography was no exception. 

Evan Sung is one of the most talented and in demand food photographers working today. His photographs are regularly featured in the The New York Times dining section and his recent projects include beautifully illustrated cookbooks by chefs Paul Liebrandt and Michael White. Together with his food and prop stylists and assistants, Evan took hundreds of gorgeous photographs. Unconventional chef authors Jehangir Mehta and Jesse Schenker joined us on set and Francisco Migoya was in contact from his home in Seattle while Evan and his team worked through our shot list of finished dishes and instructional shots. 

We'll be releasing Unconventional in preview to Alta Editions subscribers and our Kickstarter backers next month and will officially release the book in early 2015. In the mean time here are some "behind the scenes" photos from the shoot. Stay tuned for more updates here soon!
