This is my favorite video I have produced so far. I think with every video I want to respect the food, and try and convey just how much work, and how much deliciousness comes with every dish, and I think this does the best job of that.
I wake up around 6:15 every day and the first thing I do is work out. When your job involves food, its really important to get off to a healthy start and stick to it as much as possible
No one day is exactly the same but its a mix of shoots, which i typically have one of a day, meetings, events, and then the majority of the work is just sitting in front of my computer. It’s emails, and editing photos and videos, and everything else that goes into running your own business.
Just continue to produce cool and engaging content that Im happy with!
It’s a 10. I was a food tv producer before this, so to me I’m still doing the same job as always, except now I make all the decisions. Which is a much better feeling.
At the end of the day, my job is show off how amazing food is, and how much fun this whole world is. And what’s more fun than eating a slice of Pizza thats bigger than my torso?
I worked in TV for over a decade, first in sports and than in food TV. The intention wasn’t really to quit my job, just to take a little break, since I was burnt out from being on the road for about 9 straight months. But Brunch Boys took off and I never went back to TV.
I just wanted to make a fun brunch online series between my TV gigs. I originally wanted to call it “The Boys Who Brunch” but that name was taken by another online series, so I just looked at every combo that was similar until i found what I could own across the most platforms. I’m much happier with Brunch Boys!
When I worked in TV one of my many tasks was to make food look as good as possible, so even though I wasn’t doing the actual shooting, I had in my head what I wanted the shots to be. When I started running the account, I really had no experience taking photos. So I self-taught myself how to shoot and edit, and I’m still learning everyday. If I see a technique that I really like, I’ll search for Youtube videos on how that was accomplished.
This is the most liked photo I’ve ever posted. Even the second time I posted it, it got over 30k likes.
I have a Canon 5D mark iv and switch between the 50mm lens and the 24-70mm. I shoot everything in manual, which means I’m looking and adjusting almost every setting before I take a photo. Its truly the only way to have full control over what you are doing.
The only thing im worried about is lighting, and where in the restaurant am I getting the most natural light.
The shot takes a second, but usually I’ll leave a restaurant with over 200 photos which I then have to go through and figure out which ones are the best. That process takes much longer.
I edit everything with Adobe Lightroom. Again, It comes down to have full control over your photos, and since I shoot in RAW, I can truly manipulate them in any way.
I have lived in NYC and the NYC suburbs my whole life, and that means that I have consumed FAR too many bagels, and this is my favorite combo. Egg Bagel with Scallion Creamcheese, Lox, and Avocado! This has saved my life far too many mornings.
I think that’s all internal, and having success is whatever makes you happy, and whatever you want it to me.
I just alway believe in outworking everyone.
TIME! I feel like I have none of it with how busy I am, so I try to make the most out of every second. Sadly, some of my hobbies have become less important. Sports and video games which were always such a big part of my life have taken a bit of a back seat.
Just to continue to produce and grow the brand!
