Erin Gleeson    

Food photographer and Author of NY Times Bestseller, "The Forest Feast"

For many years Erin has worked as a food photographer in New York City, shooting for cookbooks, magazines, top chefs and restaurants, The New York Times Dining section, and The James Beard Foundation. She also has an MFA in photography from SVA and has taught photography to college students at The Fashion Institute of Technology for 4 years. But in the summer of 2011, her husband Jonathan’s new job prompted a move to Northern California (just south of San Francisco) where she found a lovely cabin in the woods. Inspired by local, seasonal ingredients in her weekly CSA box, she creates “photographic recipe illustrations” that are mostly vegetarian and laid out visually. She hopes to inspire healthy recipe ideas anyone can make- dishes that are easy enough after a long day at work, yet impressive enough for a party.

In 2014, her first cookbook, The Forest Feast, (a NY Times Bestseller!) was published by Abrams and it was a dream project come true. A few months later, Erin and Jonathan welcomed their first baby, a boy named Ezra. The Forest Feast for Kids (a book for kids to cook from) was released February 2016, and her third book, The Forest Feast Gatherings (an entertaining focused book with menus for different occasions), will be out September 2016. In addition to working on The Forest Feast blog and cookbooks, she also has a line of Forest Feast gift items, she teaches photography in Continuing Studies at Stanford University and works as a freelance food photographer and illustrator.
