South Bay Accent – Sensational Seafood Story (Magazine Editorial / Food Photography) – February / March 2013 Issue

I did some editorial photography earlier this year for the local glossy magazine South Bay Accent. They needed a consistent look for the restaurant dishes that were being featured in the multi-page editorial spread. I’ve worked with them before, so they knew I was the right guy for the job. I shot most of the food photos you see below (the cover, the fish, and the right side of the last spread are by other photographers).
