It was a pleasure producing a photo shoot last month with @fboulaire in Los angeles. Or close by – on the beach in Corona Del Mar. We went scouting the day before along the coast by motorcycle – quite an awesome ride indeed. We had that perfect SoCal weather, and had a fun time with @caitlinleahy and @nickviciouss at sunset. These two were a great match and hit it off from the start – super pros and awesome to work with.
We’ll be sharing later on some colorful images from that shoot, Caitlin’s blue eyes working their magic at dusk 😉
Here’s a preview of the black and white portraits that we’ve got.
Another great editorial shoot for Diablo Magazine. My crew and I set up at 3 locations, including the State Capitol in Sacramento. The women I photographed are inspirational figures to young women in our community.
These three women have succeeded in their leadership roles despite woman’s ongoing struggles for equal opportunities in male dominated fields. Catherine Baker ended up running in the state legislature and became Assemblywoman in the 16th Assembly District. Claudia Wentworth, president and CEO of a Solar manufacturing company earned 2015’s Most Influential Woman in Business by the San Francisco Business Times. Pamela Kan, President of Bishop-Wisecarver Group was appointed to the California Workforce Development Board by Governor Jerry Brown.
Shooting along the coast on Highway 1 is one of my favorites. Our beach shoot started off early in the morning with ideal overcast weather. I captured some images in the hight of the high tide on the coast in Pacifica, California. Thanks to an awesome crew @fboulaire & @zachographie and everyones’ eye for creative details the shoot was a lot of fun and we got these images! While on location, we had the pleasure to encounter an old school surf board maker working from his workshop along the beach. We tried to get his portrait too but he was a little shy, humble, or just didn’t like my camera 🙂
We just mailed a promo card with these images that we’re happy to share, and add to our portfolio.
Check out my website with the latest imagery including portraits of Fritz Maytag “the god father of craft beer in America”. I had the opportunity to shoot him at Anchor Brewery in San Francisco, thanks to Draft Magazine and my photo crew Marine and Francois Boulaire. Take a look at the article about how Fritz Maytag took over a dying San Francisco brewery in 1965 and turned it around to become the most modern small brewery in the world.
Below you can see a couple outtakes from the shoot. Check out Draft Magazine’s January/February spread. I’m excited to have these images in my portfolio.

I did not want to hesitate any longer for an outdoor shoot, this weather has been too beautiful. Last week my crew and I had the opportunity to work with gorgeous model Ashely Nash. I wanted to capture a woman owning her beauty and independence through her self-confidence. Shout out to super producer Lisa Vortman, who found us this charming location on the bay in Tiburon. Caffe Acri was perfect for our morning adventure, we enjoyed their delicious coffee and hospitality. Thanks to Jeneffer Jones, wardrobe stylist, Tara Thompson for hair and makeup and the rest of our crew, we created some beautiful portraits.
I can’t wait to add these portraits to my portfolio.
Take a peek at these shots from a recent studio shoot at Walmart.com. My collaborations with San Francisco’s Walmart are always such fun experiences. I have grown a bit attached to the team because of their friendly support, creative inspiration and warm welcome. The jobs thus far have been well directed, fun yet professional and the on set experience is not only full of talent but also filled with great music, laughter and appreciation for one another. I feel lucky to work with them and look forward to booking more shoots in the future!

Dorian has a shop like no other in Noe Valley, San Francisco. He is the man behind the clocks: Embarcadero, Stanford, just to name a few. He fixes centuries old clocks and if need be, creates parts like new. Quite an amazing job. I had the pleasure to shoot a few portrait on Friday and will go back soon to shoot videos.
