The Blacksmith Restaurant

If you haven’t been to the “new” and improved Blacksmith Restaurant, I highly recommend checking it out! I had the privilege of photographing the new look and its nothing short of Beautiful! New bar, new lounge, new seating, and new bites on the already fabulous menu by Gavin McMichael. For more info, go to The Blacksmith Restaurant.


Paula Watts Photography would like to wish everyone a happy and safe New Years celebration!

Published for the November/ December issue of Bend Living Magazine, here are a couple images I shot for their cookbook section. The theme was New World Thanksgiving and I think it turned out nicely!

Norway… Food and Chefs

Geilo Norway Chef with Mushrooms professional Photographer

I was recently hired to go to Norway to be a co-host of a food/travel TV show and to photograph the food and culture of the Norwegian Cuisine. I came away with some great photos that incorporate the lifestyle and passion behind the chefs and dining experience. Here is just a sneak peak at some of my favorites. The trip ranged from visiting some of the top chefs in Norway and their restaurants to going to the fish market or seeing a chef’s eye’s light up as they smell the freshly picked mushrooms from a nearby mountainside. (picture shown). The last picture shown is of a Sami man (indigenous Norwegian people) cook us Reindeer stew right over an open fire and sitting on reindeer skin. If I wasn’t there myself, I’d think it was unbelievable! For the show, my husband and I were also taken around the country just like tourists to see the culture and picturesque scenery of beautiful Norway. What an awesome experience!
