The latest cover shot of Merrimack Valley Magazine www.mvmag.net .

Just out today with my grilling in the valley shoot which accompanies writer Kathleen Pierce article for the Taste of Summer.

Special thanks to the styling from Two Chefs Are Better Than One of Billerica MA www.twochefsfood.com .

Also a big thanks to Creative Director Steve Pennimpede for all his retouching skills that helped keep me safe and scorched free.

    Kevin, I HEART this cover image! Great job! It is so adorable, and yet enticing, and I love how it looks with the words on the cover on the website! Congrats! Cindy

    Yes it is almost worth doing a tutorial on how it was done.
    Originally we tried to shoot it au naturelle but the flame was never right and the shrimp started to burn. We shot it in two views. One for the flame and grille and then the burger and shrimp. Steve did extra flame work and presto a cover shot.
