ASMP Congratulates ASMP Member Chad Chisholm on his new book! Imbibe Worldwide: Cocktail Cookbook with recipes from around the globe... ! 
Denver-based photographer Chad Chisholm authors and shoots cocktail cookbook

Commercial photographer and travel writer Chad Chisholm has published his first cookbook, Imbibe Worldwide. A collection of 70 cocktail recipes from around the globe, the colorfully shot libations jump from the page with story telling and instructions on how to create your own.
Currently carried in Barnes & Noble, Reader’s Digest, Google Books and Amazon, the cookbooks are the first of many projects that Chisholm plans on releasing under the Imbibe Worldwide moniker.

“These cocktails are reminders of the places and experiences in which I’ve had them,” explains Chisholm. “Unique in their locations, ingredients, or prop styling with souvenirs and props from the locations, this project was a joy to shoot in our studio and I hope readers enjoy the journey and libations with me.”

Traveling to over 30 countries and 27 states, Chisholm brings local culture and flavors with him for readers enjoying the book. A graduate of University of Northern Colorado, founder of Custom Creations in 2005, and protégée of famed photographer Raoul Josset, Chisholm continues to capture images around the globe for his clients.
