The heatwave in Rochester last week rendered my studio the melting point of chocolate; a problem not often encountered as a food photographer in Rochester. Better shooting today.
It was five years ago today that Elliot Spitzer resigned. I have had the privilege of photographing many disgraced politicians, but none greater than Governor Spitzer. We can only speculate what would have been, but when I shot this sometime between when the wiretapping began and his resignation, I was pretty sure I had a photograph of a future president in a Rochester diner having a cup of hot chocolate with whipped cream on top.
