Hi, I'm Yossy Arefi, a Brooklyn based photographer and baker. I am currently writing my first cookbook, Sweeter off the Vine, that will be published by Ten Speed Press in Spring, 2016. Originally from Seattle, I moved to New York in 2007 where I worked in restaurant kitchens honing my baking skills for a few years before hanging up my apron and picking up my camera full time in 2012. Apt. 2B Baking Co. started in 2010 when I decided to combine my loves of photography and baking. 

You can listen to me chat about food, family, and photography on Heritage Radio Network's The Food Seen HERE

Some FAQs

1. What kind of camera do you use?
Apt 2B Baking Co. is shot (almost!) exclusively with vintage film cameras (plus a few well labeled instagrams every now and then). Much of my professional work is shot digitally with a Canon 5d Mark III.

2. Can I buy a print of one of the photographs from your blog?
Absolutely. Email me: and we'll work it out.

3. Can I use your photos or content on my blog?
Probably, but please email me first just to make sure.
