After the Jump: Food + Photography with Matt Armendariz, Julia Turshen & Kristina Gill

This week’s radio show was so much fun, I wished it could have gone on for hours. One of my favorite people, food photographer, stylist and writer, Matt Armendariz was in town from Los Angeles, so I stole him for a night- along with our resident food expert, Kristina Gill (in town from Rome!) and writer and chef (and my wife…surprise!), Julia Turshen. Between the three of them, they represent so much talent and passion and knowledge, it was fun to ask them about food, photography and how social media has changed both over the past few years. From conversations on Pinterest (and how clients now request Pinterest-friendly images) and Twitter to thoughts on what’s changing in the food industry (hint: it’s becoming less perfect and more real), these three were full of so much useful information. I hope you all enjoy the show and thank you so much for this talented trio for joining me on air.

“It takes a lot more work with the camera to get the photos that Instagram does. I don’t think one will replace the other. They’re complementary.” [8:30]
