My good friend Matt Flinn is a personal chef and cooking instructor in Los Angeles and needed some pictures of himself in his chef coat that he could use for marketing purposes. I wanted to get him into the kitchen and take a variety of poses so he could use the images for various applications. We also did a couple of more casual shots of him by the bar.
Lighting information: I used an Alien Bees B800 studio flash fired through an umbrella softbox coming in from camera right. I used a silver reflector for fill light on the camera left side.

I wanted to have an action shot that showed Matt doing his thing.
