San Francisco and a Poncho | Fashion Phototgraphy

This last week I went to San Francisco and fell in love with a poncho.  True Story.

After several 10 hour days I drove another hour out of my way to blow off some steam with a somewhat spontaneous shoot with the lovable Evelyn Frost.  Plenty of fog, beautiful late-afternoon light, a few choice glimpses of the Golden Gate Bridge, some (possibly) ill-advised building climbing and this shoot hands down rejuvenated my creativity and boosted my motivation.  ...then I drove home the 3+ hours and plopped into bed.

Let me tell you, Gobble is here to revolutionize home cooked meals!  10 minutes.  One pan.  Dinner solved.

I started working with Gobble a few months back and it has been such an experience!  Executive Chef, Thomas Ricci, is nothing short of a genius in the kitchen, he's super funny and a blast to calibrate with!  I get to work directly with Thomas for every shoot and we spend the entire day laughing...and maybe a little work.

Every week I can't help but leek at least one sneak peak of an upcoming dish on Instagram, so if you're interested, give us a follow here....and Gobble too!

La Viga | Redwood City

Most of the restaurants I shoot for invite me to take part in eating the dishes we shoot; I almost never go home hungry.  At La Viga, not only was I invited to eat my fill, but the entire Martinez family came to feast.  What an honor.

10 EAST Kitchen & Tap House | Commercial Food Photography

Recently, I teamed up with 10 East Kitchen and Tap House to photograph some of the top dishes on their menu and some that have yet to come!

I had a great visit with Chef Sam Bans and the staff was great; keeping me well stocked in fresh water and friendly conversation. 

I shot on location at 10 East, backlit with one umbrella and bounced light with white fill cards.  All backgrounds were found in the same room, which was nice, I just had to move around a little.
