What’s that thing they say about making omelettes? About cracking eggs?
I’m not yolking (sorry) when I say that it took eggs-emplary (sorry) efforts and a little bit of scrambling (sorry) to capture the high-flying and gravity defying egg-splosion (sorry). Omletting (sorry) some of the BTS photos crack (sorry) through to show you all of the preparation, planning, trial-runs, and of course eggs that were sacrificed in the making of James’ egg-septional creative shot (I’m not sorry about that one).
Thanks for the BTS photos, Kate!
James’ photographs can be spotted on the current cover and inside of Canadian Living Magazine, starting with this Cherry Berry Bannock Shortcake recipe.

A little while back, our crew had the pleasure of spending some time in L.A. with Dean McDermott (and Tori and the kids, of course) to shoot his new cookbook, The Gourmet Dad: Easy and Delicious Meals the Whole Family Will Love.
Here are some behind-the-scenes shots from our time working on this awesome project between Toronto and Los Angeles. To our discovery, Dean is just as serious about hamming it up for the camera as he is about food.
The James Tse crew are a bunch of worldly travellers, not afraid to strap on a backpack, take their shoes off at airport security, and hit the skies. Check out some of the postcards we’ve accumulated on our Polaroid wall over the past few months. Bonus: Kate wearing a giant bear head.
Kate sent us one from San Francisco, Laura sent one in from Vancouver, and Tyler’s made it all the way from Shanghai.
Now I don’t want to alarm you, so I’m going to give you this warning: What you’re about to see below is a Christmas related post, and yes, yesterday was April Fool’s Day so I understand your suspicion of anything you see on the internet for 24 hours either side of April 1st, but hear me out! This is just how timelines in food photography are. We get to shoot Christmas themes in March, Halloween themes in January, Christmas themes in November, Spring themes in December, Christmas themes in August, you get the idea.
Last week James had the pleasure of shooting for Create-A-Treat, shooting a little bit of Halloween related treats and, you guessed it: some Christmas treats. Take a look at some of the behind-the-scenes shots from our wintery studio.
Spring is fighting as hard as it can to get here, and with the snow melt and longer days, it’s time to think about all the good things that comes with this transformation. Recently James shot once again with The Kit, this time the subject was the perfect Easter Feast. Check out the images below to see some flavourful, soft and decadent meal ideas to inspire you for the upcoming holiday weekend.
Even though the winter holidays are long past, there are more holiday feasts fast approaching, and with them another chance to eat, drink, and be merry. Back in December James shot with The Kit to feature a mouthwatering meal designed to get everyone in the spirit to dine. Let these images leave you inspired for the next big meal you’ll share this spring.
