I first crossed paths with Chef Scott Carsberg of Lampreia Restaurant in April of 2007 when I was a staff photographer at the Seattle Post-Intelligencer. I was assigned to photograph Lampreia for a restaurant review by P-I restaurant critic Leslie Kelly. I was familiar with his reputation as one of the top chefs in the country and Lampreia being one of the finest restaurants in the Northwest. I had read articles by well regarded New York Times food writer Mark Bittman who has done numerous articles on Carsberg. Carsberg is an interesting guy…quite a character and a supremely talented chef. He was the first chef that I recall, who received four stars for his food in the P-I. The James Beard Award winning chef is a talent who delivers artistic creations as well as amazing flavors. When he decided to redesign his website, he contacted me to do the photography. Knowing what high standards he has for his food; I considered it an honor that he wanted to hire me to photograph his cuisine.
Here are a few of the recent items that will be going on his website soon, as well as a few other creations from previous shoots.
