Back in December, I talked to an editor at LA Times about putting together a feature on the dining scene in Salt Lake City. She gave me the go ahead but specified that I had to work on spec (i.e., do it without a guarantee of being published). Fair enough, I thought.
I conducted half a dozen interviews and shot photos on location at four different restaurants. I wrote a 1,200 word article in which I tried to track down the people and restaurants responsible for where the Salt Lake City dining scene is today. I submitted my work and waited patiently. Over a month later, I got word that my piece was getting scrapped. C’est la vie for a freelancer.
Recently, though, the photographs from my shoot at Forage have been picked up by other publications including AFAR Magazine and Eater.com. I guess all that work wasn’t done in vain.
Here’s a selection of photos from the shoot at Forage. In the coming weeks, I plan on posting photos from the other shoots, too, which include: The Copper Onion, Finca and Pago.
