Chef Camp – MN editorial event photographer

Food in the upper Midwest is having a moment. A moment in which it is finding it’s own voice, celebrating its unique opportunities. For so many years, we’ve admired and tried to emulate the coasts, or Europe, or someplace other than where we are – home of fish and beer and northwoods. So it has…
