Hi, I'm Rob Finkelstein!
If you have, or are looking to start, a food photography business, you should have a full understanding of contracts, how they work, and how to negotiate them.
I am a lawyer, pastry chef, food photographer and blogger. You can check out my blog and social media @cinnamonshtick.
I have been practicing law for more than 20 years and have my own law firm in New York City. In 2017, while running my law firm, I attended culinary school for pastry arts. I then started my blog, Cinnamon Shtick, where I share recipes for desserts, pastries and breads.
Since starting my blog, I have negotiated and drafted many contracts for recipe development, photographs and video, both for my own brand and for other food photographers. I also represent numerous food photographers in a diverse range of issues, including business formation, trademarks, copyright and website protection.
