February 12, 2013

Conceptual advertising portrait, lifestyle, corporate and product photographer Dana Hursey has lots of new work in his portfolio that includes food shots he did for a cookbook, featuring 35 of Los Angeles’ Premier Top Chefs.  Cart for a Cause cookbook was sponsored by Lexus and features a recipe from each of the chefs, with all proceeds going to St. Vincent Meals on Wheels program. Hursey shot each chef’s portrait in their respective restaurant and simultaneously photographed their featured recipe.The images were shot over a three-month period as schedules permitted. Needless to say, Hursey got to eat well

He also shot a new portrait gallery that includes the noted radio host Ethan Bearman. He was contacted directly by the show  to do a visual “re-branding” of  Bearman’s image. Other images in the portrait gallery include personal work as well.  See more on Hursey’s site at,
