When you are given an opportunity to take a journey, Take it without hesitations.
when I asked my wife if it would be ok for me to be gone for a few days she said
I hired a Sherpa to carry my gear.
I have been asked “what was the smallest item we have ever shot?”
They were computer chips measuring 1.5MM wide for an LED company named Luminus out of Sunnyvale CA.
Rare 2001 La Tàche bottle
I were hired by @jmcvegaproject to shoot these wine bottles on location at their warehouse. The expensive and rare 2001 La Tàche bottle worth about $4,800 could not be sent to my SF studio.
The final shot for Vinfolio made it on their van and can be seen driving around Napa. What a journey…
When I am not in my studio, you may find me here…
Being in a photography studio all week makes me appreciate the outdoors and finding creative elements to shoot. For me? It’s the movement of water.

Shooting artwork on location in Half Moon Bay CA.
I had the pleasure of capturing fine art digital images for Christie Smith of www.unleashedartgallery.com (Resin mixed media on wood). The process of making her art is pretty amazing. If you are ever in Half Moon Bay CA, go see her work at the Ritz Carlton!
Art installation ” Ocean Inspiration” series.
Tight interior photography lighting.
When your client gives you 10 minutes to photograph their wheel chair accessible restroom. The solution? I put the camera on a tripod using a 16mm lens and I shoot multiple exposures using my mono light and blend them in later in Photoshop.
9 minutes later we were onto our next shot. 🙂
Not all windows appear as they seem.
Working on our 22nd photography project with Louis Vutton we have found that these windows have been the most challenging editing nightmare so far. With the amount of construction going on around the building we have had to find creative ways to shoot around them. Often times we will find scaffolds blocking the carefully selected window displays that we have to photograph them from a different angle and make them appear as if nothing was ever retouched. Let us not forget the amount of foot traffic that goes on in Union Square and to this day I have yet to tell anyone “Please do not walk in front of my shoot” In fact, I encourage it. 🙂
