Meet Gordon Edgar –  author, blogger and cheesemonger at Rainbow Grocery Cooperative here in sweet ‘ol San Francisco.  I had the opportunity to photograph Gordon for this image featured on the cover of his memoir Cheesemonger: A Life On The Wedge published and distributed by Chelsea Green. Chelsea Green is a unique publishing company that specializes in books on the politics and practices of sustainable living.  They are also part of the Green Press Initiative.  A fitting match for our values, as we are extremely proud of our Green Photography Studio status.

Gordon came to our studio with his awesome attitude, hefty cheese knife and over $2,000.00 in wholesale cheese! See those big wheels?  Those weigh between 50 – 80 lbs.  (Thanks for moving those around Gordon!)  I think we will never forget the unique “aroma” that was in the studio at the end of the day.

Gordon was a good sport, a great model and I wish him much success with his new book.  I can’t wait to read it.  You can order and get a taste of the book here.
