Seaside shoot

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.

Talking beer with Fritz Maytag

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.

Glowing with Self Confidence

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.

Iron Hot Editorial :-)

Here is my latest editorial photos taken for Diablo Magazine. It features Michael Bondi, a metal worker in the east bay.

On Set for “The Perfect Gentleman”

Living in California certainly prompts the question from out-of-state visitors, “Have you  met a celebrity?.” While I have not met A-list celebrities, like Brad Pitt or Meryl Streep (yet!). I have been on a Hollywood set before. SF Celebrity Portrait Photographer

Some time ago, I had the opportunity to shoot actors on set for Michael Rohrbaugh’s short film, The Perfect Gentleman. The film won numerous awards and was shown at the Newport Film Festival, The Ivy League, Sedona, and Rochester International. You can watch the film here.

I’m happy to have this portrait in my portfolio.

The Blue Denim Jean Rediscovered

I recently had a great shoot in my studio in the Mission district (of San Francisco). My producer Lisa Vortman and stylist & HMU, Tacha Scott created the idea for a denim jean themed photo shoot. SF commercial portrait photographer

We had the beautiful Erin Darcel Coleman, Nicole Renee and Maylen as our models for the day. These ladies were a delight to work with and I hope to continue working with them for future shoots.

Behind the scenes, I had the help of my photo assistants, Francois Boulaire and Hugo Babey. We also had Kirsten Voss doing some behind-the-scenes video of the production. Below you can find a few images from the shoot and the video we produced!

I cannot wait to add these images to my portfolio.
