Wacky Jacky for Where Magazine

Captain Jacky Douglas is the skipper and owner of the fishing boat Wacky Jacky. It was inspiring to spend a day with the high spirited captain and her devoted crew on assignment for Where Magazine 

We circled the Farallon Islands in search of salmon for the better part of the day. The ocean was very calm and hardly windy; so quiet that sometimes that we could hear the whales blowing before we saw their spray. There was a camaraderie that we felt at the end of the day, the kind where you spend the day with strangers and it's fun. Not everyone on the boat actually caught a fish, but everyone somehow went home with one. Including me!

Been organizing files lately. Oh joy. 

But fun to revisit some shoots I did a while back, like this one of Justice.

This summer I had the pleasure of photographing Belcampo's family day at their ranch in Mount Shasta. 

It was about 108 degrees or so and there was lots of fire and meat involved. Dedicated, detail oriented and hard working people producing a top notch product! It was an honor to be a part of their day. Thank you to Anya Fernald and her crew for making me feel like part of the family.

Bust Magazine: Oakland!

Really enjoyed spending time in Oakland to shoot this travel story for Bust Magazine. The East Bay has so much to offer; I'm always looking for an excuse to spend the day over there. And now, commuting on a new Bay Bridge!

It was cool to discover places new to me like the beatutiful Mountainview Cemetery and Gondola Servizio on Lake Merritt. And to visit some new favorites like Brown Sugar Kitchen and Mua. I have been a BIG FAN of BUST for years (big fan!) and I am pretty excited to share this.

A16 for Diablo Magazine

Spent the evening at A16 in Rockridge. I love getting assignments from Diablo magazine because it allows me to get out of the city and explore the other side of the bay. They have summer over there!

Belcampo's Anya Fernald for Diablo Magazine

I photographed Belcampo's Anya Fernald for Diablo's Women to Watch feature. What a dynamic lady! You can read the article here and you can sample their delicious meat at their restaurant and butcher counter in Larkspur. Their specialty is beef, but I highly recommend the chicken livers!

Shooting with Mindy Fox for La Cucina Italiana

 I worked with writer Mindy Fox on this story about Farina's pesto. This is part one, in San Francisco. Mindy is full of energy and good ideas, and notices every detail. Gotta love that!

Bull Valley Roadhouse

Port Costa is a sweet little town that feels like a nineteenth century movie set. I've found myself there to photograph several times recently. Here is the Bull Valley Roadhouse for Diablo Magazine.

Record Shopping

Some of the images from my current promo: Record Shopping on Haight Street. We visited Rooky's Records and Groove Merchant both in Lower Haight. 

I only own one record, (which I bought solely for the cover picture of Cindy Lauper a la Man Ray by Annie Leibovitz). But one thing I learned from hanging out in record stores all day long is that it will put you in a really good mood.
