I'm Ben Sassani and I’m an Austin raised, Houston based photographer. I’m a self taught photographer and mainly do weddings, but Shoot My Chef has been my passion for the last few years and a project near and dear to my heart for a few reasons. I take and display the pictures you see on both of my websites with pride. My goal is to showcase chefs from all around the country, with a wider array of chefs in and around the Houston area.
About the Project
Shoot My Chef started as an idea a friend and past wedding client pitched me in 2009. Unfortunately we did not have the chance to work on it together before his passing, so I started this website, grabbed my camera, and with a little motivation from another close friend started shooting chefs as a personal project in 2013. I’ve shot over 20 chefs in Houston and have started to expand into the Austin market. The website has also been featured locally on Culturemap and the Houston Chronicle. In 2016 I’m looking to expand the project to cities and states outside of Houston area. If you’re a chef who would like to be featured, or would like to have a chef you know featured on here, please go to our contact page and drop me a note. I would love to hear from you and possibly setup a shoot together.
