For a recent issue of the Improper Bostonian, I got to work with the very talented stylist, Jessica Young to create these colorful and playful shots of fashion sneakers.
There are some times that being a food photographer really pays off. One of those times is leading up to Thanksgiving. This year I got to bring home the leftovers from not one, not two, but THREE Thanksgiving dinners! Below are the pictures from the first two with DownEast Magazine and the Improper Bostonian.
Check out my latest work on the Improper Bostonian's article Setting the Tone and Table featuring the work of local wedding planners and designers. For the opening shot New England Country Rental utilized their massive warehouse space to build us an entire set, complete with a faux grass wall! It was pretty wild to see these talented folks do what they do best.
Next I caught up with Lauren Wells of Lauren Wells Events at her home in South Boston to photograph this beautiful moody blue table setting.
One of my favorites from the shoot was this tablescape from Lo McShay at Lolo Events in Cambridge.
Finally we headed up to the north shore to shoot this subtly simple table from Tangorra Wedding Planning
I have, over the past year, spent a lot of time in bars around Boston. That is, I have spent a lot of time photographing in bars around Boston for an upcoming self published book. In that time I've thought a lot about what makes a great bar, and as simple as it sounds, its a great bartender. Give me a dive bar with a great bartender over an expensive trendy bar any day. Great bartenders know that spirits can be as complex as wine and cocktails as nuanced as a delicious meal. They know how to borrow from the past and innovate to create something new. For this years Bartender's feature I got to photograph a few new faces and revisit a couple old friends. Check out some of the outtakes from the shoot and keep your eye out for our book coming soon.
I've always been fascinated by performers. Actors, musicians, dancers, anyone who can get in front of a crowd and create magic before your very eyes. However, I think it's easy to forget that behind the scenes there's a whole team of folks that help to make it happen. I recently had the opportunity to get back stage at several of Boston's theatre companies and document the unsung heroes that keep the shows going. Shot for the Improper Bostonian's Spring Arts feature, below are some outtakes from the shoots.
NESN Red Sox reporter Jenny Dell on the cover of this week's Improper. On whether she gets sick of all that baseball: "I think anything you end up putting your all into, you love. So you eat, breathe, sleep and dream it. On my days off, I sit at home and watch the game. Once you’re a part of it, you’re all in."
Adam DeTour's photographs were featured in The Improper Bostonian Magazine's Summer Dining Issue. These mouth-watering photographs are accompanied by recipes for lemon mayonnaise, hot sauce, ketchup, relish, and mustard! Special thanks to Food Stylist, Catrine Kelty.

I can't believe I forgot to post this one! Roslyn is one of my favorites from Style Profile. She used to be a producer for the film industry and has all sorts of amazing stories. If you see her, ask about Billy Idol...
