Scenes from Traverse City, Michigan for Bon Appetit Magazine, May 30-June 1, 2011. I had the pleasure of photographing the Traverse City region for a little story in Bon Appetit about how chef Mario Batelli spends his summers. It was my first time in the area and I must say, it’s a great destination! So many great good & beverage options along with generally beautiful scenery. Documenting the area while dodging hail storms in the springtime made for a bit of a challenge, considering the story was to run in the summer months, but in the end I was happy with the results.
For those curious, the locations above (in rough order of appearance) are as follows:
-Carlson’s Fisheries in Leland
-Pleva’s Meats in Cedar
-Bare Knuckle Farm in Northport
-The Cove featuring the Chubby Mary in Leland
-Fish Sandwich from Boone’s Primetime Pub in Suttons Bay
-Black Star Farms winery and pizza in Suttons Bay
-Downtown Traverse City
-Tandem Cidery north of Suttons Bay
-more at Bare Knuckle Farm.
