Travel, Work, and Moving = Winter Blogging Fail

I was doing so well and then it all fell apart.  It wasn't like I didn't have the opportunity.  My laptop was always at my side.  There was downtime at airports and coffee shops, but making a blog post just never seemed like the best use of my time when there were emails to answer, work to get to clients, and fantastic beef to eat and malbec to drink.  

But now I'm here, at home, ready to make amends.  I vow to get up to date with the blog world by making a few posts in the next week to get you caught up on the past couple of months worth of work.  

Where to start?  Let's start with the fun stuff!  Justin and I spent November and December in South America. Namely Lima, Peru and then a month in Buenos Aires, Argentina.  He enjoyed a much needed break from work before he started grad school and I worked and of course had a great time exploring the new cities. 

I shot travel stock which is mostly uploaded to my agencies.  I still have some images to go through and hopefully now that things have calmed down I will have a chance to get to those stragglers!  I also shot lifestyle images of people in the city.  Those images should follow in the next few day. Here are some samples of the travel stock that I shot and the sights I saw.

I hope to be back here, writing to you again in the next couple of days with more work to share!

Campaign for Paso Robles Wine Country Alliance: Part 1

Over the past few years I've fully fallen in love with Paso Robles.  Combining that with my love of food and wine, being asked to shoot for the PRWCA was a really cool honor for me.  Here are some images that will be used in the 2014 "Grow Wild" campaign to promote the Paso Robles wine region.

A big part of the campaign focuses on Paso's sustainable practices including use of animals to abate weeds, fertilize the soil, and promote a holistic farming practices.  Tablas Creek Winery was nice enough to let the animals loose in the vineyard for us even though the grapes were still on the vines.  Perhaps a bottle or two worth of grapes were sacrificed to the animals for the cause, but hopefully the images were worth it!

We also shot in the barrel room at Robert Hall Winery.  The size of the cellar always shocks me and it's a challenge to photograph in such a cavernous space.  The barrels go on for days and the smell of oak and fermentation is heavenly.  Not a bad place to work for the day.

America Eats Project Off and Running

America Eats: Following Food to Find America project is off to a great start.  Jim Denevan of Outstanding in the Field was generous enough to let us shoot their event at Wattles Farm in the middle of Hollywood yesterday.  Katie and I met some great people and had a lot of fun seeing the 140 guests experiencing farm to table dining.

To follow our journey and see more about the project please go to:
