I had the distinct pleasure of photographing the new items on The Cliff House at Pikes Peak‘s new Summer Dining Menu a few weeks ago. Not only do the plates look great, but I got to taste them too, and they are amazing.
Few people know that I do a lot of commercial photography and design work for The Cliff House (pretty much every photo on the website is from me, and I also designed everything you see on the website and in print there, too!). I love commercial work: it is such a break from the pace of portraits and weddings. While there are a lot more people looking over my shoulder, and my work is usually being judged right out of the camera by owners and art directors, commercial shoots seem to have a slower pace to them, giving me more time to play and get the shot perfect.
If you haven’t dined at The Cliff House, you should. It’s a four diamond award-winning dining room but with a great value in its prices. It costs me and Char about the same to eat this amazing food as it does for us to go eat at Macaroni Grill! The quality of the food is unmatched, and the flavors will blow you mind!
