Midsummer Summation

The garden at Camp Manitou provides some produce for meals and a place for campers to learn about growing food.

Just a quick midsummer update to alert you to some recent work of mine. First, The New York Times’  interest in Maine continues. (And why shouldn’t it? There’s all kinds of good stuff going on here!) I shot a story on food at summer camps for them a few weeks ago. It ran on the front page of the Dining section, and featured photos from Camp Laurel and Camp Manitou, both in the idyllic Belgrade Lakes area. It was very cool to see kids learning about and eating local food, and cooking their own meals. Another Maine-based food story is in the works this week, so be sure to like Stacey Cramp Photography on Facebook to find out when that is published.

Yankee Magazines July/August issue features an award-winning Maine pie maker in their Best Cook in Town column. I photographed Mary Blenk and her amazing blueberry pie for this piece. It’s not yet online, so you’ll need to get yourself to the newsstand to obtain her highly prized pie recipe!

My work with renowned raw, vegan chef Matthew Kenney on his latest cookbook with Gibbs Smith has been keeping me busy this summer as well. I’m so excited about how the images are turning out for this and can’t wait to share them…in the distant future. Publication is slated for fall 2013 so you’ll just have to be patient.

Last, but not least, I recently did some new shots for long-time client McCabe, Duval + Associates. They redid their web site and it is chock full of fun photos I took of their staff, offices, and most importantly, their canine helpers! It’s always a pleasure to spend time with this creative and entertaining crew.
