Always a pleasure shooting with Chef Dave Bush at St Francis Winery. This is one of many shots from a day of shooting. Great food, location and great wines!
Beautiful oval window Beetle shot at the Treffen show 2013. This car was sitting by itself away from the rest of the cars in the show. Photo Nerd info: Nikon D800 w 50mm shot at f/1.6 @ 2000 sec
This shot was done a few years ago at Airkewld in Surprise, AZ. It is a very detailed double cab that could be driven everyday. Dig this truck. Mark of Lunde VW brought it by for the photo shoot. Thanks Mark! Thanks Pete!
I was digging through some boxes in my garage. I pulled down one of the many marked “tear sheets” and pulled a few old magazines, brochures and misc printed pieces out. Someday I will cull through all of these boxes but not now. It will be a nostalgic and time consuming project. Most of these are from the days of shooting film, 4×5 and medium format cameras, before digital. Now I just keep the digital files instead of printed pieces, much easier.
This image was shot in about 1995 for a retail shopping center that was advertising a sidewalk sale. I built a small sidewalk set, a “glamour doll” with a miniature shopping bag from the shopping center. This was a postcard, newspaper ad, poster and other uses. This is a copy shot of one of the postcards. Photo nerd info: No metadata! so here is what I remember: Toyo 4×5 camera, Fujinon 210mm lens, Tungsten lights, Fuji Velvia Transparency film (probably) and no retouch / Photoshop. Embarrassed to say but I probably had my hair pulled back in a pony tail so I could see through the back of the camera. Sorry no photos!
Happy New Year and a prosperous and pleasant 2014!
This is an outtake from a shoot a few weeks ago. We were shooting food paired with Rose’ wines. I love a good Rose’ to drink and when they are on set they are beautiful. The color! Shot in November, natural low light in Sonoma County, California. Cheers!
I commute 500 miles each way from Southern California to Northern California quite often. I am always amazed at how much open, diverse, beautiful land located between Los Angeles and San Francisco. This is the view from the air. Photo Nerd info: taken with my camera that rings. Shot @ f / whatever iPhone decides, at whatever shutter speed it decides, by the lens that I guess I should know what it is.
I was shooting into the sun from a ladder over vineyards in Carneros but turned to see behind me and snapped this shot. The winery requested shots of 4 vineyards that were located in Carneros and Calistoga. I love this early morning light in November. Photo nerd info: Nikon D800, 35mm lens at f4.5, 1/200th, ISO 50. Wearing Vans without socks, not the best for cold early morning shoots in vineyards.
Orleans Hill Organic Wines. Playing with light and loose product positioning. Thanks to Kristina, the art director, for letting me have fun with this set. Fits the brand perfectly! Photo nerd info: Camera used and some lights placed here and there… Organic, man!
I have photographed at this event at the La Jolla Cove a few times. The CAF San Diego Triathlon Challenge. I always leave inspired and in awe. Swim, bike, run.
