Plumpjack Holiday Gift Catalog

Back in July, I had the pleasure of shooting this year's gift catalog featuring wine from all three of the Plumpjack brands:  CADE, Odette & Plumpjack.

Ingleside Inn Remodel in Palm Springs

The Plumpjack Group has undertaken an historically sensitive remodel of one of Palm Springs' iconic landmarks, the Ingleside Inn & Melvyn's Restaurant.  I enjoyed shooting a library of images to showcase their progress to date.

Salt + Straw New Store Opening in SF

Portland-based ice cream chain Salt + Straw opened their second San Francisco location in time for Halloween and needed a library of shots to announce their arrival on Hayes Street.

Harvest & Crush in Napa

This autumn, I joined the hard-working picking crews before sunrise for the harvest at a number of Napa vineyards.  I followed the grapes into three wineries to witness the sorting, crushing & pressing operations that begin the grapes journey into this year's vintage wine.  As harvest was disrupted by the fires in the valley, many of my shots reflect the haze in the sky and extraordinary display of color on the vines that came with a delay in picking.

Three days aboard Ocean Beaut trawling for sole & cod

The second phase of my project documenting the recovery of groundfish stocks in our west-coast waters was spent observing the harvest of Petrale & Dover Sole as well as Ling Cod & Skate from deeper canyons off the coast of Oregon & Washington. 

Rockfish trawling on the Pacific aboard Ocean Hunter

I spent an amazing day off the coast of northern Oregon documenting the abundance of rockfish in our coastal waters.  While the species had been overfished thirty years ago, their numbers have rebounded to sustainable levels allowing for trawling to resume.

Marin Magazine: Not-So-Haughty Yacht Clubs

Marin Magazine asked me to photograph five local yacht clubs that don’t require fancy dress or a hefty initiation fee but do offer many ways to have a good time.

Plumpjack Winemaker Portraits

For this year's holiday catalog, Plumpjack wanted to feature the winemakers from all three of their wineries:  Odette, CADE & Plumpjack.

Pangea Vineyard Estate

The owners of this modern home sited on 130 acres on Sonoma Mountain requested a photo library of the property.

Dancing Coyote Beach Cottages

The cottages are located on the shore of Tomales Bay in the town of Inverness, CA.  The owners wished to upgrade their website with current photographs of the units and some of the amenities offered there.

The Haute Route Ski Tour

Two of my best friends from Breckenridge joined me on the classic ski touring route in the Swiss Alps from Verbier to Zermatt.  This personal project proved to be an excellent adventure as the weather changed from warm sunshine to sustained winds to a heavy storm that halted our progress on the fourth day as avalanches crashed down onto our path.

Pendulum Restaurant in Vail, CO

The Plumpjack Group opened two new restaurants in Vail this winter.  I helped them establish an image library of the architecture & design as well as their new menu & cocktails.

Monterey Bay Fisheries Trust

The Monterey Bay Fisheries Trust is a nonprofit working to ensure that our coastal communities benefit from active, working waterfronts and local, sustainable seafood for years to come.

The trust asked me to shoot an image library for usage on their new site and for other communications.
