This past summer I was able to photograph some pretty amazing events, however the Full Plates Full Potential event at Flanagan’s Farm was surely one for the books! Full Plates Full Potential is an organization working to eradicate child hunger in the state of Maine. Currently 1 in 5 children in Maine alone are food insecure and Full Plates Full Potential is working around the clock to reduce that number to 0. I am always honored to take photos for this important organization here in Maine and this event was no exception.
On May 19th, 2019, Full Plates Full Potential hosted a charity dinner featuring many of greater Portland’s James Beard award winning chefs to kick off their summer season and it was just AMAZING. The action in the kitchen, the delicious food, and all of the great people that came together to donate to such a great cause made for a memorable evening. Here are a few of my favorites from the night.

Hey all, Jordan here! Last month I had the pleasure of photographing the crew of Earth as they returned to Flanagan’s Table in Buxton, ME to once again wow guests with a delicious five course meal. Flanagan’s Table is a monthly dinner series with a different Maine chef in rotation each month. Diners experience a meal prepped with the best fresh local ingredients, native wine and beer selections, and in addition have a portion of what they spent on their ticket donated to sustaining local farming and agriculture in Maine. I had heard wonderful things about Chef walker and his team, but being able to photograph their culinary creations and experience the hustle and bustle of the kitchen was an amazing treat! From the flavors to the plating, their dishes were very clearly well thought out and executed to perfection for the 40 plus diners. My favorite part of photographing the dinner had to have been seeing all the hard work first hand in the kitchen with Chef Walker and his crew and then moving out into the dining area to see the pure enjoyment of diners as they take their first bites of what is sure to be one of the best meals they’ve ever had. The winter storm that day surely did not stop guests from venturing out to enjoy the meal they’d been waiting months for and the staff at Flanagan’s Table and Earth made it totally worth the trip!
