“A food runner is a person who got a job they really don’t want to have,” [Robert Larson] said. “And they try to make the best of it by taking pictures, so they’ll get something more than a paycheck.”
Granted, when Mr. Larson took a job as a food runner last year at a Los Angeles nightclub, a regular paycheck was no small consideration. After trying for five years to be a professional photographer and not getting far, it was time to show to his new bride that he was willing to let go of a dream that had not materialized. Of course, once he settled into the job, he found himself taking pictures here and there, especially during breaks and on slow weeknights.
