Another great Food Network shoot this week. Adam Gertler, host of Kid in a Candy Store, was in Denver to shoot an episode at Hammond’s Candies.
The LA-based crew, helmed by director Gordon Recht, was in typical reality TV mode: Up early, blocked and lit by 9am, and rolling by 9:30. And they had a lot to cover.
I shot both “hero” promotional and behind-the-scenes stills as Adam and the candy makers at Hammond’s made a 5 lb. lollipop, starting with putting the sugar in the copper kettle and ending, hours later, with hand pulling the still-warm candy into the iconic twist.
Kid in a Candy Store airs Mondays on Food Network.
