Cat Cora




Of all the people I have photographed up at Sundance, Chef Cat Cora was the nicest and most genuine of the lot. She had no problem with letting me hang out and photograph her and her staff while she prepared a high end dinner for celebrities. Where a PR person is usually perched behind your shoulder, providing a nervous and unauthentic smile asking, "do you have what you need?", her agent was asking if I wanted some food.

Great shots Mike! Since you are such a stud and always get great shots, do you mind sharing some love and the settings you used.

I love your shots that capture people doing what they love to do. That kind of passion isn't fabricated, and I value those moments.

YOU PHOTOGRAPHED CAT CORA AND DIDN'T TELL ME!?!?! Dude, she's an Iron-Chef! I'm so jealous it hurts a little. But mostly just makes me hungry. Love love love your food shots. But then you already know that.
