Here are my favourite published assignments, media and awards since I emerged as a food, garden and terroir photographer. Creating content in images, developing recipes, growing food, and a life change as an expat out in the Australian country have also inspired me to write stories. I am currently in the making of my first niche cookbook. It has not yet been submitted to publishers as I intend to keep full creative control of the artistic direction while the photography, writing, design and recipes are still in progress. I will be seeking for a book deal in the next year, please get in touch if you are interested to help and know more about the project.
ABC Organic Gardener magazine #145
November 2023 issue #145 - Cover + image page 34.
Late winter 2023, ABC Organic Gardener team offered me another cover assignment! This time it was a potting bench for an early summer edition. The challenge was not only to make it look like summer but to find some seedlings! We had a big frost that morning, could you tell? As for the potting bench, my lovely husband built me one from recycled wood from an old shed. Et voilà!
Food Photography Awards
9 Award selections in a year at Foodelia
In September 2023, I completed my first year participating at Foodelia, an international food photography competition website. Amongst such great photographers from around the world, I was selected for 9 collections.
ABC Organic Gardener 2024
Cover and pics inside ABC Organic Gardener 2024 Calendar & Diary
I was delighted when I was announced that ABC Organic Gardener will be using some of my photography on their new 2024 Calendar and Diary. Even more to know they were going to use my puffy garden bed shot (recycled from the issue #139 cover shoot assignment selection)!
ABC Organic Gardener magazine #143
June 2023 issue #142 - Cover + editorial photography pages 63.
I was still on holiday in Canada when ABC Organic Gardener editor told me they were going to use one of my Millefleur chook photo on the new cover! My little Squeaky is a big star now and a photo of Minnie is also in the article. They were both hanging out on my old apple crate transformed into a veggie garden. Some extra kale was offered to them for congratulation. :)
ABC Organic Gardener magazine #142
August 2023 issue #142 - Photography p. 70-75.
In late autumn 2023, while being overseas in Québec gathering content for my cookbook, I was invited by ABC Organic Gardener to return with a new contribution to the organic harvest section. To go with a winter-warming image cover, I was suggested to feature dishes inspired by French Canadian gastronomy and a bit about the food culture where I come from! The recipes presented are a Black Truffle Poutine, Vegetarian Lumberjack Pea Soup and Berry Picker Pudding Cake. These all have been re-invented in my Australien kitchen using local and homegrown ingredients.
ABC Organic Gardener magazine #141
May 2023 issue #141 - Words, photos, recipes p. 60-67 + photos p. 78-81.
In early autumn 2023, I was offered to contribute to the organic harvest section of ABC Organic Gardener with a story and some of my recipes. The chosen article features Happy Wombat Hazelnut farm, and the recipes are the Pumpkin and Saffron Risotto and Hazelnut Chocolate Fondue. Being published in a magazine as a photographer and food writer altogether was a new step in my "Snowy Foodie" journey. On top of this, photographs of my bantam chooks are also credited in the poultry section!
ABC Organic Gardener magazine #139
February 2023 issue #139 - Cover + editorial photography pages 55 & 82.
In spring 2022, my first ABC Organic Gardener magazine cover (issue #138) was not even published and I was already offered another cover shoot assignment for the autumn action issue. The brief was to photograph a raised garden bed filled with cool-season produce... and a chook! While the weather was starting to warm up in Tumbarumba, it was a challenging one but as we are located in a cool climate zone, I managed to style something good with what I had (or could find). Styling greens and directing chickens on a patchy moving sky was very challenging but I feel extremely grateful for this backyard shoot experience!
ABC Organic Gardener magazine #138
December 2022 issue #138
Cover + editorial photography pages 5,18,20, 42,44,55, 78 to 83.
When I received a response from the ABC Organic Gardener magazine's editor to work with them, this was a great day! This is such a beautiful magazine that inspired me with everything I do with my backyard edible gardening, harvest cuisine and seasonal produce photography. I was not expecting that I'd make a cover shot and a backyard poultry article shoot on my first issue! There are a few more pics inside as well (chosen from my photo libraries) in the preserving and composting articles.
Good Organic Gardening magazine
Autumn 2023 Vol.13 no.6 - Story and photography - pages 24 to 27
In 2022, I got in touch with some of the best Australian gardening magazines for submitting gardening photography. The first response was from Good Organic Gardening. Unfortunately, they were not looking for photographers, but after seeing my website, they offered me to write my story and publish it in the "Gardening Folk" section. The double spread features my gardening journey from Québec to Tumbarumba, and a selection of photos of my garden and all the creatures that live in it (meaning myself, John, Puss, the chooks and some wild birds)!
Foodelia Food Photography Competitions
First food photography award
In September 2022, I joined Foodelia, an international food photography competition website. Amongst such great photographers worldwide, I won my first award with this baroque-style still-life composition.
Tumbarumba Vignerons Association
Photography library project
Following the 2019-20 bushfire, the Tumbarumba Vigneron Association offered to create a four-season editorial photography library to show the beauty of cool climate viticulture in the region. Assisted by my husband on the drone and second camera, this project was a collection of adventures that have certainly helped me reach a new level of experience in my photography "in the field". We would have wished to complete all growers' profiles, but it was not all up to us to direct the project, and we will be keen for more vineyard shoots anytime!
Food and Photography Blog by Annemarie Bolduc
In 2020, after experiencing both a bushfire disaster evacuation and a global pandemic that changed everything, I reinvented myself as a "terroir" photographer and food blogger. I did not completely retire as a graphic designer, but I followed my instincts capturing the beauty of growing produce, backyard gardening, home cooking and local eating.
