As a Reno Tahoe food photographer and commercial photographer, I sometimes get lucky and get to combine my passion for photography and my job with my love for food! Recently, I was hired to photograph a number of Lake Tahoe restaurants for The Infatuation, a restaurant review and recommendation site that focuses on discovering the best dining experiences in various cities. To be honest, prior to being hired, I hadn't ever heard of The Infatuation, but I can say with certainty I'm going to be using them as a resource when I travel in the future! I'm excited to share with you some of the work I captured for The Infatuation at some of my favorite Tahoe eateries (and a handful of new ones!) for their article on The 19 Best Restaurants Near Lake Tahoe.

The brains behind the marketing over at MidTown District came up with a solution to their problem - they decided to utilize high-quality still photos as the foundation of their video content. Cue ME.
