I'm thrilled you've found yourself here, pouring through my collection of short food quips, home recipes, and lighting tests. My name is Jerrelle, and simply put, I am a super passionate artist and eater; when I'm not covered in charcoal and splatters of oil paint, I'm dusted head to toe with AP flour and tomato sauce. As art and cooking are always crossing paths, I eagerly sit, straddled on that fine line that exists between the two of them, just waiting for another moment to partake in their shared worlds.
I've found myself in a very interesting career path right off the bat. I work in a commercial food photography studio. What I see everyday, and what I'm apart of everyday is the act of sculpting food and capturing that food on camera. Everyday I'm witnessing more of how to design food advertisements for menus, prints, and the web and the marketing strategies that drive those avenues, in addition to TOP SECRET techniques that Food Stylists take years of practice to acquire, and of course on top of everything, all of the logistics and technical skill involved with actually lighting the food that's brought out on set. This is my journey behind the scenes, and my record of how the things I learn blossom into inspiration outside of it all.
