Tara Striano’s love of the camera was first inspired by a high school teacher who introduced her to the art of black-and-white photography. She went on to graduate with a degree in photography from New York University. With an appreciation for design and a passion for detail, Tara began her career photographing interiors and still life. And though her love of food began with the first bite of her grandmother’s eggplant parmigiano, it wasn’t until later that she began to focus her lens on food. This eventually led her to co-create the blog, Cookin’ and Shootin', as well as her two books, Winter Cocktails & Summer Cocktails Tara continues to shoot a wide range of subjects, using her distinctive style and visual flair. She is based in New York, currently living in Brooklyn and the North Fork of Long Island.
