Modus Operandi | Big Green Egg
This one of a kind cookbook is an inspiration bible and must have for every Big Green Egg user. With almost a 1000 pages, weighing over 4kg, you find more than 300 recipes and a ton of informative lecture. I’ts a true workbook, a Modus Operandi.
It’s my biggest project so far, stretching a period of over 1,5 years and more than 80 days of studio- and location photography. With a massive amount of images taken it forced me to come up with a whole new workflow management.
We chose the “3 steps on white” photography to amplify the workbook feel of Modus Operandi. It worked out great but it means that we had to shoot every recipe in this book three times. And that was a lot of work. Starting with the laydown of the raw ingredients. Followed by a photograph of the recipe in the pre Big Green Egg state. At last comes the photograph of the cooked and ready to eat dish.
Besides the recipe photography you’ll find complementary inspirational photography and photography reports of various subjects.
I’ve learned a lot working on a project of this magnitude. And therefore I want to give a special thanks to Big Green Egg Europe for their trust in me as a photographer.
