A Week in the Life of a Vegetable: Locally Sourced with Southeastern Grocers

Getting to the Roots of Southeastern Grocers’ Locally Sourced Produce

Deremer Studios Jacksonville Commercial Photography - www.deremerstudios.com

While heat and humidity are not my cup of tea, the warm weather and long days of summer mark prime growing season for locally sourced southern crops.  So, what better time to spend a week touring family-owned farms that provide Southeastern Grocers (BI-LO, Harveys and Winn-Dixie) with fresh, locally sourced produce at prime ripeness.   To add to the excitement, award-winning chef Curtis Stone – a longtime advocate for locally sourced, in-season produce – accompanied the group, along with produce associates from around the company, to learn more about the art of growing produce.  From a squash and zucchini farm in the foothills of South Carolina, to pepper and cucumber farms and a peach orchard in central Georgia – we had a grand time photographing this unique tour for the good folks of Southeastern Grocers!

Despite the sweltering summer heat, it was a true pleasure to spend the week with the fine men and women who work so hard to bring fresh fruits and vegetables to our tables.  It was immensely informative and a grand ol’ time.  Of course, having a Corvette for the week courtesy of Avis didn’t hurt either…  But more on that soon!

A Rainy day with BMW Drive for Team USA

Deremer Studios Automotve Photography

If you happen to Live in Jacksonville, you know that last week proved rather wet – with thunderstorms sweeping through our area pretty much every day.  And while we needed the rain, it did make for tricky conditions for an impromptu shoot for our friends at BMW. The nation-wide BMW Drive for Team USA event stopped in Jacksonville this past week – the tour features a great lineup of BMW’s, together with comparable cars from the brand’s major competition – all available to test drive.  In addition, for every test drive, BMW is donating $5 to the US Olympic Team – not a bad deal!

All in all, the team putting on the event did a spectacular job adapting to the weather, and a fun time was had by all . As always, please feel free to download as many photos as you like – we have sized the photos to 1080P HD wallpaper, perfect for your desktop, laptop, tablet or TV – and if you enjoy our photos, please share this blog with your friends and help us get the word out!

Christmas on Amelia Island – Candlelight Caroling at Fort Clinch

Deremer Studios Fine Art Photography

With Christmas literally right around the corner, and with lots of blog posts yet to be posted, I thought what better way to get posting than to highlight a shoot we did for our friends at Amelia Island for the holidays!  On the northern tip of the island is a beautiful Civil-War era fort, named Fort Clinch.  On the first Saturday of December, the folks at Fort Clinch welcome the public to participate in some great 1860’s-era caroling under the stars.  With a raging bonfire and voices raised high, we sang a wealth of pre-1860 carols as the moon rose over the canon-lined ramparts.  Along with the period singing, this immersive walk into 1860’s holiday living included a variety of living displays, depicting the joys and traditions of a Civil War era Christmas.    This will definitely be a tradition for the Deremer Household for years to come!

Two Days of Speed – Photographing for BMW

2014 10 Automotive - BMW Ultimate Driving Expereince 28 - M3 Sho

We recently had the grand pleasure of doing some work for the fine folks at BMW.  A few weeks ago, they hosted their Ultimate Driving Experience on the outskirts of Miami and invited us to spend two days photographing (and even participating) in their event.  I’ve always had an affinity towards BMW – and if you’ve followed our blog for some time, you’ve likely seen our coverage of the BMW Resort Driving Tours up in Amelia Island.

2014 10 Automotive - BMW Ultimate Driving Expereince 19 - M235i

The Ultimate Driving Experience is a bit different than what you will find at one of their resort tours – with an emphasis on performance and handling over luxury and tech – though both are still very much present.  The Miami event consisted of three autocross courses, two skid pads, and a variety of single-maneuver exercises.  BMW offered a wide range of complimentary experiences, including a 2 Series and 5 Series autocross, a city drive, and an extensive Teen Driving School (I’ll definitely be signing my kids up when they are of age).  In addition, during the week, BMW offered a full day car control clinic, which I had the pleasure of both photographing and participating in.  Somehow, I wound up with the fastest couple of times of the day – maxing out at 22.121 in the M3.  Still not sure how that happened…

All in all, the event was a wonderful experience, and offered a great introduction to the brand’s commitment to excellence.   As always, please feel free to download as many photos as you like – we have sized the photos to 1080P HD wallpaper, perfect for your desktop, laptop, tablet or TV – and if you enjoy our photos, please share this blog with your friends and help us get the word out!

10 Years of Growth – Celebrating a Decade of Success with the Women’s Business Center

2014 10 Corproate - Women Business Center JaxChamber 16

Just last night we had the great pleasure of being a part of the JaxChamber Women’s Business Center’s (WBC) 10th anniversary celebration. After working with this fine group of folks for the past five years, it was great to celebrate a decade of education, innovation, and business empowerment with so many familiar faces!  As is typical for the the WBC, the ’10’ theme was all around, from commemorative buttons and chocolates, to the “Taste of Ten” featuring – you guessed it – 10 great catering companies who have been involved in the WBC over the past decade.  Here’s 10 more decades of success and growth!

Fresh & Friendly – Jacksonville’s Newest Grocer Opens its Doors

2014 09 Corporate - Fresh Market Grand Opening 03 - Jacksonville Regency Centers

A few weeks ago on the blog, we said goodbye to Fred Cotten’s BBQ, but this week, we get to bring you a happier business story!  On Wednesday, our friend’s at Regency Centers celebrated the grand opening on their anchor store in the new Brooklyn Station shopping center in Jacksonville’s Riverside neighborhood.  The Fresh Market opened it’s door to a big crowd of reporters, stakeholders and excited customers – offering up tasty free samples and some Fresh Market swag.   The grand opening ceremony itself was rather unique, with the cracking (and sharing) of a giant wheel of Parmigiano-Reggiano in lieu of the more traditional ribbon cutting.  The store was beautifully organized, the shelves filled to the brim with fresh produce, groceries, and a bevy of health-conscious items ripe for the picking.
