Visual Storytelling: The Horse Inn
I have spent the better portion of my life working in various positions in the restaurant industry. There is a level of grit and artistry about restaurant life that I love — from owning a restaurant to serving, having a stand at Lancaster’s Central Market, bartending, buying local and even growing produce from seed.
I have a respect for the work that goes into a craft cocktail, I am always excited to a see a restaurant that has their own pastry chef. I love it when the Chef will take the time to purchase food from local farmers. It’s amazing that we Live in Lancaster County and we have the option to eat fresh, local and seasonal at all times. The restaurants in this town set a bar for excellence. I’m so proud to play a small part in it by using photography to help display food and all the passion that goes into it. I get to capture images from some of the most talented people in the industry. A picture of their work is a picture of their art and expression.
What I like the most about having a continual, seasonal photo program with restaurants is the ability to develop a relationship with the client. Getting to know the restaurant owners and their staff helps when adding a little personality to the images. The Horse Inn has been a storytelling client for several years now. Here is a little look at the photographic story we’ve captured with Matt, Starla & their talented crew.
