The People at Project: EATS!

A couple of weeks ago (July 26 to be exact), I had the chance to photograph the Project: EATS! food festival held at City Hall plaza in downtown Jersey City for the Village Voice. Since the post’s focus was on food porn, I was left with some fun portraits of people enjoying their summer treats. 

So here are some of the fun foodies I spottedx at the event.

The Summer Olympics in London are fast approaching, and Vogue did a cool spread on a lot of the hopefuls. (Kind of glad Michael Phelps wasn’t part of the group. He’s good, but he’ll be everywhere once again.) Serena, Hope and Dwayne have become household names, but Ashton Eaton, Ryan Lochte and those adorable Bryan Brothers have yet to gain the same recognition. Anywho, here’s a look at what went behind the shoot with one of my photography heroes, Annie Leibovitz.

Last time I took his photograph, he could bare sit up, let alone stand. Love his Davy Crocket hat. It seems I take his picture at different stages of him growing up. I hope that will continue. Taken 7 January 2012.

While photo 8 in The Guardian's 'The week in music - in pictures' is pretty amazing, this one above (17) is just too adorable to pass up.
On a related note, how do you get a photo in this series without having to work for a photo stock company?
