For a lucky few, there is a defining moment when interest and opportunity align and the perfect career path comes into plain view.  Joanna Badano had always enjoyed a keen eye for detail. After receiving her education, traveling the world, and earning her stripes in the restaurant business, that moment presented itself in Washington DC when she attended a talk on Food Styling for Photography by industry veteran, Lisa Cherkasky. And just that quickly, her course was set.

Independent affirmation of her talent and intentions soon followed when she was awarded a James Beard scholarship for achievement in the culinary arts.  She spent the next phase of her preparation at London’s prestigious Le Cordon Bleu, graduating at the top of her class.

Fast forward to the present, and you will find her signature vision and experience in a comprehensive portfolio of print and electronic media, ranging from local to national in scope.

When she’s not in the studio preparing for the next photo shoot, she’s likely teaching her young daughters a thing or two in the kitchen and inspiring the future stylists in the family.
