Dominic Episcopo Boston food & drink photographers

"Like in many Italian-American households, food was the cultural centerpiece of the home I grew up in. On any given Sunday, we would have a dozen or more people over for dinner. Food was a way to celebrate, to mourn, to heal, or to simply enjoy each other’s company. Even when there wasn’t a special occasion, it was time well spent, enriched by family, friends, and dishes to remember.

Now, as homage to my mother's and grandmother's recipes, and to the people who I’ve shared them with over the years, I have set forth to capture their essence in this heartfelt project, 'Nana’s Recipes'.

This was always meant to be more than a photography project or recipe book, although I didn’t realize that until far into it. It is an autobiographical story, steeped in memories and stories that my mother and Nana passed along to me, and that I am now proudly sharing with the broader world beyond our family table."

Scott Goodwin Boston advertising photographers

"I am a commercial photographer and video director based in Ipswich, Massachusetts. Over my 25+ years in the business, I have travelled extensively both nationally and internationally, collaborating with amazing clients in design, hospitality, corporate and the culinary worlds.

If I’m shooting commercially or on an editorial assignment, I elevate the impact of light, beauty, luxury and elegance to the most ordinary of products or subjects.

I have been fortunate to experience a broad range of passions and hobbies as well. I shoot competitive skeet and sporting clays; I’m a certified Re-breather scuba diver; I’ve raced cars on tracks from Florida to Canada with the Porsche Club; and I enjoy the simple life boating around Ipswich and the North Shore."


Ryan Maheu Boston interiors & exteriors photographers

Ryan Maheu is living his dream. Since trading-in his Swiss made chisels and Japanese handsaws for analogue and digital photography, you can catch him spending his days crafting beautiful imagery for clients that believe a space is so much more than just space.

With a deep appreciation of the fundamentals of film and an almost spiritual philosophy for the art, it’s clear after working with Ryan that he can bring that belief to life in his work.

Driven by his love of design, Ryan attended the School of the Museum of Fine Arts and the New England School of Photography where he was awarded Honors in Advertising Photography, Portfolio Honors and the Tyler Munroe ACES Award. These three awards are the highest given by the school. His training in furniture making and boat building also gives him a unique appreciation for everyday structures.

“It’s a high I am always chasing; one I only catch when everything comes together at 1/100th of a second!”


Darren Setlow Portland interiors & exteriors photographers

"I’m a commercial and architectural photographer living with my wife and two boys on the coast of Maine, near Portland. Details are very important to me. I care passionately about paying close attention to the world around me, and crave understanding about how things work. My job as a photographer is to share that insight with the viewer, inviting them into my vision of what’s essential, beautiful, and compelling about the subject.

Clients include home furnishings catalogues, hotels, architects, designers, builders, and magazines. I also have extensive studio experience for clients such as LLBean Home, Plow & Hearth, and Company C. Equally at home in dynamic, location-based work, I’ve also been photographing new stores for Starbucks in shopping malls and airports.

Recent projects include the inaugural cover for DownEast Magazine’s new Homes Magazine, and work published in Linda Leigh Pauls’ new book 'Stone Houses', out this Summer from Rizzoli.”
