My son and I went to the Barrett Jackson Car Auction in Orange County last weekend. Great time! I brought my Holga, a cheap, plastic, toy camera that shoots 120 film. I had some strange looks when I would clunk the shutter and manually roll the film. Shooting expensive, vintage cars, high performance cars etc with this cheap camera was very fun. One car magazine photographer shooting the event noticed what I was shooting with and he was stoked to see the plastic camera. This shot is one from the pile of rolls of film shot. More to come.

Spot lighting for mood, negative space, the rough, red stone surface hint at the “Outback” with this obviously Australian Shiraz and Chardonnay wine shot.
I love dogs. This one is on the list of my favorites. The dog, Blue, belongs to Jamie, a member of the Kunde Family. Blue is about a year old and a true cattle herding dog We were photographing at the top of the mountain, in the vineyards of Kunde Family Estate and Blue was along for the ride. We were set up and waiting for the golden light. The dog kept us all busy by nonstop fetching an oak tree stick. The stick started out about a foot long but after hours of the art director, digital tech, Jamie and myself throwing it and having it brought back to our feet, the stick ended being about an inch long. This shot was close to the end of the hours long game. We got the shots and were entertained as well by this cute canine! Thanks Jamie for bringing Blue and your four wheel drive climbing skills.
I cross the San Francisco Bay over the bridges many times a month to get to the airport after shooting in my Northern California studio. This was one of those dashes over the Richmond San Rafael Bridge in the fog. Notice I am the only one on the bridge. Did I miss a traffic alert? It gets worse, I am also taking a photo!!! At least I wasn’t texting too.
Another Game Day Beer shot for 7-11. Can’t help it, I love diamond plate metal. Could do my whole garage in this stuff!
Grandmaster brand Chardonnay photo shoot. Shot with 4×5 digital back, tilt, selective focus, slight glow in bottle. This label lends itself to a close-up. Great texture of paper, detailed information wine making notes such as “Russian River Valley, aged 5 months…”
