Alan Weiner joins us to tell us about his journey from a boy in Iowa to a long-time contracted NY Times photographer based in Atlanta, to Portland, where he has established himself as a premiere freelance food photographer. Alan shares with us some of the most incredible assignments he had for the NY Times, from political unrest in the USA and Russia to the '96 Olympics and political conventions and even hurricane disasters. Alan met his wife Pam on a plane flight from Portland, and then serendipity had her ask him to do a simple food shoot for her, and he was off to the races in his newfound niche.
