Editorial Photography at Juniper Farms
Chef Caroline Ishii, Edible Ottawa Magazine
In the fall os 2021 I had the opportunity to shoot at Juniper farms, just outside of Ottawa in Quebec. It was a clear sunny day at the peak of the fall colour season. We spend an afternoon following Catherine Ishii around the farm, shooting food, and learning about nuanced ideas of terroir.
The assignment from Edible Ottawa was to shoot a wide variety of images, from food, to portrait and landscape. What made this shoot particularly interesting was how well suited the environment was for drone work. Along with my camera kit I took my Dji out for a stroll.
It was a photographer’s dream. Working with a fantastic quality of natural light, we captured portraits as Catherine toured the fields. Finally I pulled the drone out and captured some of the more unique images, one from a birds eye view in a kale field. I didn’t start the day thinking I’d get some of my favourites images of the year, but thats how it ended.
