Tuscany Italy

In May I did a shoot for Branca International in Tuscany, Italy.  Branca International is the maker of Fernet Branca, which many of you foodies out there have sipped on after a delicious meal.  Villa Branca is in the heart of Tuscany’s Chianti Region.   Branca makes Chianti Classico and hearty Tuscan Olive Oil.  The Villa’s history is long by american standards- the cellar dates back to the 1300’s and was previously owned by the Medici family!  The vineyards and wine cellar are just spectacular.  I had am amazing time working with the winemaking and management team of Stefano and Anna Serbakova.  So in addition to an incredible photo shoot, I gained new friendship that day in Tuscany.

Oprah and Starbucks

I had an amazing time shooting the Teavana campaign for Starbucks and Oprah Winfrey in Seattle.  At the end of 2013 , Starbucks and Oprah announced a joint venture to co-create Teavana Oprah Chai Tea.  I photographed Oprah as she developed the tea with Teavana’s leading teaologist , Naoko Tsunoda.   It was inspiring to watch!   The images were shot in a very natural and organic style.  Oprah was  incredibly down to earth.  I feel very fortunate to have worked with such an inspiring woman.   This shoot was one of the highlight of my career thus far.  Take a look at Teavana’s website, and look at some of my favorite images below.

Goldeneye Winery | Lifestyle Shoot | Anderson Valley

I recently had the pleasure of photographing a lifestyle shoot at Goldeneye Winery in the gorgeous Anderson Valley.  It’s in the heart of Mendocino’s wine country.  It’s a great region for Pinot Nior, their specialty.  The fall leaves in the vineyards were a sight to behold and we captured some amazing images!
