ELLE DRIVER, AKA “CALIFORNIA MOUNTAIN SNAKE”
Professional photographer Paulette Phlipot is fascinated by food—a fascination that has provided endless opportunities for her to stage blackberries, tomatoes, and beans in dramatic settings. Her work has been published in many cookbooks, magazines, and advertising campaigns worldwide. She is the co-creator and photographer for the coffee table/cookbook Ripe: A Fresh Colorful Approach to Fruits and Vegetables. Paulette is the driving force behind the BigLife food section and has perfected her stalking skills because chefs are notoriously hard to pin down. Check out her work at p3images.com.
