One of the setups with celebrity chef Michael Chiarello

Photo Shoot With Michael Chiarello

I was commissioned by Restaurant Hospitality Magazine this last spring to drive up to Napa Valley and photograph celebrity chef Michael Chiarello in his home. The assignment was for a regular article the magazine runs where chefs discuss items in their refrigerators, thus the fridge is open in each of these shots. No, that was not an oversight.

Michael Chiarello is best known for his role as a host on the Food Network and Bravo channel’s new “Top Chef Masters”. He is also the owner of Bottega Napa Valley, Tra Vigne, and the NapaStyle Paninoteca & Wine Bar.


I am a photographer based in San Francisco, California specializing in portrait, editorial, corporate and commercial projects.
