Welcome to Palamedes Photography. Why Palamedes? Palamedes is the ancient greek who invented breakfast, lunch and dinner. My name is Sara and since I was a little girl I've been curious about things like this. I wondered who thought of having three meals a day; risked eating something to see if it was edible or created a certain recipe. Not all my curiosity is food based-- although a large percent of it is-- but curiosity is at the heart of everything I do. Curiosity about breakfast, lunch, dinner and everything in between. It allows me to see the world with an artisitic eye and that is where my creativity comes from. Since I owe my creativity to all those questions floating around in my head, I thought Palamedes was the perfect tribute to the endless curiosity that makes me explore this world with a camera.

I graduated from Kent State with a degree in visual journalism where l learned to excel in candid and studio photography. From there, I have specialized in documentary food photography. I tell the story behind food by using a form of photography that follows a meal from farm to fork; from kitchen to table. I document authentic people, their stories, their food and where it's coming from. It has allowed me to eat some great food and meet some inspiring people; and that is ultimately what draws me to photography. It has the extraordinary ability of letting me walk in someone else's shoes; of letting me learn and experience something new every day and then share that experience with others.
