Meet Gordon Edgar – author, blogger and cheesemonger at Rainbow Grocery Cooperative here in sweet ‘ol San Francisco. I had the opportunity to photograph Gordon for this image featured on the cover of his memoir Cheesemonger: A Life On The Wedge published and distributed by Chelsea Green. Chelsea Green is a unique publishing company that specializes in books on the politics and practices of sustainable living. They are also part of the Green Press Initiative. A fitting match for our values, as we are extremely proud of our Green Photography Studio status.
Gordon came to our studio with his awesome attitude, hefty cheese knife and over $2,000.00 in wholesale cheese! See those big wheels? Those weigh between 50 – 80 lbs. (Thanks for moving those around Gordon!) I think we will never forget the unique “aroma” that was in the studio at the end of the day.
Gordon was a good sport, a great model and I wish him much success with his new book. I can’t wait to read it. You can order and get a taste of the book here.
