Eric Wolfinger, recently called “the Annie Leibowitz of food photography” by the New York Times – is a traveling cook who found his calling behind the lens. In the last decade Eric has photographed over twenty award-winning books and hundreds of editorial and commercial commissions, building the reputation of a close collaborator whose immersive approach produces powerful storytelling. Passionate and purpose driven, Eric works on projects he believes move the needle toward the greater good. Before working as a photographer, Eric spent five years cooking and baking in San Francisco. At Tartine Bakery, his mentor Chad Robertson had the idea that his seasoned apprentice would bring a perspective to his bread book that no other photographer could. Eric's photography for TARTINE BREAD was nominated for a James Beard Award, and the book is currently in it's 13th printing.
