I always have a running list in my head, "Wouldn't it be cool to shoot..." For a long time one of those things was bees and beekeepers. So about a month back I reached out to Noah Wilson-Rich, owner of Boston's Best Bees to see if we might be able to collaborate on a shoot. Boston's Best Bees is a South End based full service beekeeping company - they'll not only teach you how to raise your own hive, but they'll help you harvest your own honey as well.
I can't thank Noah and his team enough for the time they gave me to make these images possible. They even suited up (with zero complaints!) in full beekeeping attire in the middle of the hottest day of the year. After we wrapped our second day of shooting earlier this week, Noah was kind enough to send us home with a few jars of the honey we photographed him harvesting, which has led to Jess and I scouring the web for the best recipes to include the honey in (apparently you can do more than just stick your finger in it, even though that's my preferred method). A few of my favorite images are below, with some behind the scenes shots courtesy of rockstar intern Chase.
