Portland Food Photographer- Bamboo Sushi


My husband (then boyfriend) introduced me to Sushi.  I’m a Midwest girl and sushi isn’t necessarily abundant in the center states.  The first time he took me out on a sushi date he ordered the famous spider roll… and told me he was eating spider.  The thought made me gag a little but I powered through.   The second time we went out for sushi- I was hooked and the rest is history.  Sushi is now one of my favorite foods and my husband and I still love to go on sushi dates.  Of course when I do food photography I eat by myself, I guess you can say my “date” is Mr. Nikon.  David will be very upset when he sees that I went to Bamboo Sushi located in SE Portland (SE 28th) with out him.  It was D.E.L.I.C.I.O.U.S!   I enjoyed every little bite.  I was so excited about taking photos of these beautiful rolls (and OF COURSE eating them) that I forgot to write down what I ordered.  I know I ordered Spicy Tuna, a classic favorite.  The other roll was one of their “specials” and it was amazing… I wanted to lick the plate.  I refrained.  My cocktail had gin, mint and cucumber- again it was so pretty I didn’t write the official name down.  (Clearly I failed this time as a food critic- lucky for me this blog is all about the photos.)  The cocktail was very refreshing and I was happy I went with one of their specialities rather than ordering my usual dirty martini.   I have to mention that Bamboo Sushi prides itself on sustainability, fresh ingredients, charity and the list goes on.  It’s an amazing company- too much to mention in this here blog so I’ll direct you to their website where you can read all about it.  Bamboo Sushi’s Website.   Needless to say if you’re a sushi lover this place will blow your mind- I can’t way to go back.  I hope you enjoy the photos.  (If you’d like to see additional and different images check out my Pop-Up on Bamboo Sushi.)
