Ann Gagno, Photography Officer. Ann is an unconventional photographer, approaching art with an unerring precision of a chemist. She works well both in studio and ambient lighting, always mindful of maintaining a relaxed and comforting mood for every image she creates. After completing a Photography Studies Certificate from Ryerson University, she sought to understand food photography better by completing food styling training by seasoned food stylist, Delores Custer. Exhibitions of two bodies of her work were held at Gladstone Hotel’s Art Bar in 2011. On the barest of her free time, Ann spends it on traveling for the sole purpose of experiencing food. A voracious social media fanatic, she articulately blogs about her food trips at Food Trippin’ and lets her readers experience a virtual culinary tour through her food photography. She is currently one of the Top 10 Food Bloggers in Urbanspoon Toronto.
Abraham Wornovitzky, Food & Communications Officer. Abraham is both a Communications and Culinary Arts expert. Abraham’s career has been focused in two different yet creative areas. In Communications, where strategic planning, consumer knowledge, innovative market research and advertising play a major role. He worked in Marketing Consulting with a focus in the kid and teen markets, contributing to projects and developing ideas for clients that include Mattel, Domino’s Pizza and MTV.

Abraham has been a student of Dolores Custer, a pioneer in Food Styling. He thrives working in an industry where he can mix his cooking skills with his passion for the visual arts. Abe has also returned to his teaching roots, and has taught in Toronto for over two and a half years both corporate and leisure cooking classes. As a leisure photographer, he has exhibited work in Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival 2011 & 2012. Abraham is always exploring new ways of mixing Communications, Marketing and Visual Arts with the Culinary Arts.
