Fall has arrived and the start of October brings us another new Delux Burger Celebrity Chef. This month’s chef was selected when his burger was chosen as the winning entry in 96.3 Capital FM’s Best Burger contest. His name is Buck Kendall and his winning burger is called “Big Bucks Alberta Beef Burger”. It features a 7oz Alberta Beef patty, filled with bacon, sharp cheddar, black olives, green peppers, and salsa on a bed of lettuce with tomatoes, caramelized onions, and chipotle mayo. $1 from every one of Buck’s burgers that is sold will go to support the Canadian Diabetes association.
I met up with Buck at the Delux Burger location in West Edmonton Mall for his photoshoot and he was very excited to have had his burger selected as the winning entry. Buck had a great smile and a lot of character in his face which I wanted to make sure I captured in the photograph. I lit this with two 580 EXII speedlights. One was used as a main light with a shoot through umbrella and the second one was placed to camera right to provide a bit of a rim light to separate him from the background. I also selected a fairly shallow depth of field to soften the background and reduce any distractions. Here are a couple of photos from our shoot along with the final ad copy:
