Raw Family for Natural Health

My assistant Dan and I traveled to Ashland, OR to photograph this assignment for the July issue of Natural Health. The Boutenkos (or Raw Family as they are more commonly known) live a pure raw food diet and were super cool! They made us feel really welcome in their home and gave us some cool cookbooks and DVDs. We photographed them making a tasty raw pizza and a spinach smoothie, eating at their table, and hiking in a nearby park. The shots came out great.

At one critical point during the shoot, Dan was outside with a strobe shooting in to the kitchen for some back lighting. All of sudden, it started hailing really hard just I was taking the critical shot of the smoothie being poured into a glass. Dan had an umbrella outside because it looked a little stormy. His quick thinking saved the shot, himself, and the light all at once. Cheers to Dan!
