Q: How can I contact you?

A: I would LOVE to hear from you! Just email me at lacey@sweetpeachef.com with any questions, comments or just to say hi.

Q:  What kind of camera and equipment do you use?

A: I use a Nikon D60. I usually use my 55-200mm Nikkor Lens and 18-55mm Nikkor Zoom Lens with my tripod for most of my shots.  For lighting, I use natural light from a large window in my kitchen near the table. I mostly just use my dark wood kitchen table and my white dishes, but I also have a sweep that I use to float images and for colored backgrounds.

Q:  Do you cook professionally?

A: Actually, I do! I am a personal chef and have my own business called Sweet Pea Chef in San Diego, California. If you’re interested, you can check it out at www.sweetpeachef.com.

Q:  Do you have formal culinary training?

A: I wish. My goal is to someday attend culinary school. Most of my recipes are found and/or created by pain-stakingly searching cook books, the internet and magazines for tested, reviewed and good recipes. From there, I make changes if I see fit. I have a lot of experience cooking for my family and friends as well.

Q:  Can I use your photos?

A: If you have a blog and you’re not selling anything, you may repost my images on your blog as long as you clearly link back to my blog and identify the photo(s) as mine. If you want to use my images for any other reason, contact me first.

Q:  What products do you recommend?

A: Check out my Resources Page for my recommendations on various cookware, photography equipment, books, business-related links  and other goodies.
