We write, we photograph, we design, we package your ideas for digital and printed media—book, cookbook, web content, social, media, e-book—with an emphasis on food, chefs, restaurants, and natural and organic growers, producers, and purveyors. We work with a select group of Portland-area professionals in related skill areas as needed.
I have been living and writing in Maine for 20 years, with previous books about food—From Here, You Can’t See Paris and Families of the Vine—on the farmers, winemakers, and chefs of southwest France. I’ve written for the New York Times, Saveur, Gourmet, Afar, and Downeast. My recent work, including this book and the creation of Table Arts Media with Russell French, reflects the realization that “write local” is just as powerful a phrase as “eat local.”
Russell French is a 22-year creative photography veteran, based in Portland, Maine, who specializes in food photography. His work has appeared in the New York Times, The Art of Eating, Bicycling, Gastronomica, Chef’s Magazine, Downeast, and Yankee. He has also created thousands of packaging images for producers, agencies, and retailers. With Michael Sanders, he co-founded Table Arts Media in 2009. See Russell’s work at www.russellfrench.com.
Tom Morgan began his career in New York creating publications for Pace Gallery. He then worked as a magazine designer in San Francisco. Magazines turned into books and then books turned into web sites. Remarkably San Francisco somehow turned into Portland, Maine. He has worked for clients such as Random House, Chronicle Books, TimeWarner, Microsoft, Adobe, MSNBC, Smuckers and Little Brown & Co. He has produced hundreds of books and numerous websites.
