Personal Project: Maker Kits by Admiral District

During a recent commercial food shoot, I noticed the beautiful hand-crafted knife roll that the stylist had for her knives. The beauty of it and the connection that she had to the tools inside inspired this series. A quick look into four maker's kits.

Omaha Food photographer- Hot Diggity Dogs by Admiral District

We created some classics and some brand new concepts (as far as we know) for this photo shoot. One of our favorites hot dogs consisted of caramelized onions, figs, roasted walnuts, gorgonzola, and a balsamic fig reduction drizzle. The "Figgy Piggy", as we named it, is second from the right in the lineup.
