Above picture taken in my shop: 12 inch Walnut cutting boards just taken out of the food grade mineral oil and beeswax bath for drying.

An Orange County, CA food photographer Carolyn  Himes saw my work on Instagram and purchased the above Walnut board from me several weeks ago. She told me that she was going to use the board in a photo shoot for a popular local Carlsbad, CA restaurant Land & Water Co. with chef Rob Ruiz. The pictures would be used in the popular magazine Dinning Out the Great Restaurants of San Diego. Here is the link to the Land & water Co restaurant. This Is very exciting 🙂 to know that my work had a chance to be published, other than my website! The photo shoot finished a week ago.

Carolyn email me on Friday to say that the pictures were approved and a picture was selected to be printed on the cover of the magazine, March issue slated for the stands on March 24th. Very exciting!!! Doing the Happy dance! In Carolyn’s email she gave me pictures of the magazine cover and the picture that was selected, it looks great!! Sorry but I can not publish any of these pictures until after the March 24th date. The pictures will also be posted on Chef Rob Ruiz website around March 24th.

Carolyn posted two photographs from the shoot on her Instagram, here is the link: Carolyn Himes Instagram
