Chili Peppers

Chili Peppers

I love shooting subjects with vibrant colors and interesting shapes. I used a variety of peppers for this shoot: jalapeño, serrano and habanero. A simple white bowl and dark background create a clean, contrasting frame.

Cilantro Garlic Shrimp

These freshly sautéed shrimp with garlic and cilantro were fun to capture - and delicious to eat! The bright color of the shrimp and complexity of herbs and spices really pop against a simple, modern dish and white background.

Cappellini Pasta with Tomatoes, Mushrooms and Basil

Mangia, mangia! Cappellini pasta tossed with seasonal vegetables and herbs is a favorite go-to dish in the Campone house. We used red and yellow grape tomatoes, sautéed mushrooms, fresh basil, and shaved parmigiano reggiano to create a simple, rustic dish with complex flavors. I used a bright, colorful background to highlight the colors of the dish and a simple white bowl for a clean contrast.

Steamed Mussels

Steamed Mussels

Mussels take time to clean and prepare, but capturing them freshly steamed (and eating them after) is well worth the work. Fresh chopped parsley adds brightness and color to the dish. Crusty bread and lemon wedges are essential sides, which I placed on a wood plate to create a rustic frame for the shot.

Beaulieu Vineyard is (obviously) one of my favorite wineries in Napa, California. We have collected their corks over the years, which I heaped together here as my main subject. Cheers!

While eating at the sushi bar at Blue Ribbon Sushi in Las Vegas I snapped this photo of our sushi chef with our delicious spicy tuna roll.
