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!

Dining Like a King – Bitter Sweet’s Catering Menu

Deremer Studios Jacksonville Culinary & Food Photography

Earlier in December, we had the pleasure of visiting Bitter Sweet Bakery and Eatery for another great photo shoot.  This time, they invited us to photograph a sampling from their delicious and decadent catering menu.  Along the way, we photographed (and ate) some of their amazing breakfast sandwiches and some holiday confections, too.   Check out all the great food, but be warned, you may incur an irresistible craving.

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!

Yum Yum – Shooting with Bitter Sweet Bakery & Eatery

2014 10 Culinary - Bitter Sweet Bakery & Eatery 01 - Cake

A few Saturdays ago, we had the pleasure of stopping by our favorite bakery, Bitter Sweet Bakery and Eatery, and shooting a mini-session to highlight a few of their delectable treats.   Their store, located at the corner of Beach and San Pablo in eastern Jacksonville, offers up a wide variety of pastries, cakes and deserts, as well as a selection of enormous sandwiches.  And of course, the best part of any culinary shoot is the opportunity to eat the subject!  It was a tasty and filling afternoon indeed!

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.

A Comcast Soiree and Scooby Too!

2014 09 Corporate - Comcast Spotlight Soiree 12 - Scooby

You know how people talk about coming full circle?  Well this shoot was that sort of experience for me.  As I was looking up the address for our shoot with Comcast Spotlight, it seemed awfully familiar.   And it was.  You see, I am no stranger to 10751 Deerwood Park Blvd.  For seven years, I spent my weekdays fooling around (and occasionally working) as the marketing guy for CEVA Logistics – my cubicle on the third floor.  I made many good friends and even more fond memories there, and when I departed to run Deremer Studios, the parting was bittersweet.  Today, half of the third floor, where CEVA’s executive offices and board room once were, now belongs to Comcast, and  walking into this eerily familiar yet strikingly different space was  a real throwback.

2014 09 Corporate - Comcast Spotlight Soiree 06 - Sweet by Holly
The event itself was great fun.  From a cupcake workshop hosted by Sweet! By Holly, a photo op with the one and only Scooby Do, some crazy indoor drone flying, and a photo session with the guys from Duck Dynasty (in cardboard form) – all came together for a memorable party.  Catering was provided by our friends at Up Catering – and I can personally vouch for the tastiness of their stuffed mushrooms!

More Than Just a Red Carpet – Top Performers Honored at the Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island

2014 09 Corporate - Conference FAM 15 - Ritz-Carlton Amelia Isla

We recently had the pleasure of working with another great group visiting the Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island on a fanciful and noteworthy familiarization trip.   You’ve heard the phrase, “rolling out the red carpet” – well, as illustrated above, the folks at the Ritz-Carlton didn’t settle for just a red carpet – emblazoning this entire ballroom with scarlet tones to honor this intimate gathering of top performers.  As always, we captured our fair share of food pics along the way, and with this group, we offered a special service – quick-turn-around editing, design and printing of a special custom thank you print for the guests.  And on top of that, thanks to some creative Photoshoppery (that’s a word, right?), we even created a special happy birthday print by adding a banner and text to a group photo (their reaction below).   Thanks as always to the resort, and a special thanks to Dan Leslie from Appleseed Photography for partnering with us to provide top-level service at the event!
