I’ve been busy this winter doing pictures for the menus of Korean restaurants in Vancouver. Here are a couple of my favourites.


Stuffed Prawns
Stuffed prawns. It took some work with a strobe mounted with a narrow grid spot to light up the antennas.


Boo Dae, or army base in Korean. A classic fusion dish, Korean Kimchi, along with baked beans, wieners, and spam.

In a break from the Korean restaurants, I did these photos of the fondu special at the Nicklaus North Golf Club. Very Tasty.

Tech Stuff
One thing about the Korean places is that the interiors of the restaurants are really dark. The walls and booths tend to be painted black, so it really takes a lot of lighting.
