I've been lucky to have had my photos on countless billboards throughout the state, but I'm pretty sure this 5 story print just may be my largest. Not bad for an aging Nikon D850!
These new bottles from Tahoe Blue Vodka have been in the works for quite awhile. I've been helping with test photos throughout the process to help them determine a final design that is as appealing in person as it is through photos. These ones definitely grab your attention more than the previous design and really [...]
My photo was selected for the Fstoppers - Critique The Community: Product Photography video. 4 out of 5 stars is a win in my book! https://youtu.be/kA828SNW7GY?t=2961
When my wife was pregnant with our 3rd son, she got horrible heart burn at night and couldn't sleep. After trying everything under the sun to help her (us) sleep, she found pickle juice of all things. Since we were buying pickles by the pallet just for the juice I was reminded that the good [...]
Here is a shot of Russian River Brewing Company's Pliny the Elder. Such a tasty brew and one of my all-time favorites. Maybe one day I'll be fortunate enough to get to try Pliny the Younger...
I recently completed some product photography of supplements for Most Potent and now finished shooting the various ingredients for displaying on their website. It was actually quite tricky to shoot as I had to get the powder in a somewhat uniform pattern on glass so I could have the background below easy to swap out [...]
After working with Tahoe Blue Vodka for many years, I was asked to shoot a bunch of cocktails for them to update their website. The goal was to create a consistent look between each shot, so the bottle remained constant throughout and I swapped out drinks/added the hint of the ingredients on the side. I [...]
This one will be used for display purposes at Raley's and is definitely one of the more complicated product photos I've done for Tahoe Blue Vodka. Between the fake snow (which takes forever to get it where you want it, but still look "natural"), then the pile of coffee beans and of course the actual [...]
Nothing beats repeat business! Here is another shot for Tahoe Blue Vodka featuring their bottle and Bloody Mary that will be used in their advertising in BevMo.
Here are a few shots of Tahoe Blue Vodka's various bottle sizes they now offer. Their bottle is still one of the most difficult bottles to photograph between the shape, texture and lake showing through. Congrats to Tahoe Blue Vodka in becoming a partner of the San Francisco 49ers!! I can't wait to go to [...]
I like coffee and I like alcoholic beverage photography... so why not combine the two for a whiskey style coffee shoot of Jittery John's Cold Brew Coffee Espresso Blend? The coffee comes in a flask shaped bottle, which goes perfectly with the "whiskey" glass sitting on a barn wood table and with a rusty metal background [...]
One of my first clients, Loomis Basin Brewing, reached out to me late last week because they wanted to update their website with some of their new beers. The goal was to mimic, as best as possible, the photos I did for them years ago and keep with the hops/wheat/grains theme on a black background. [...]
I've been really getting into trying different kinds of coffee lately (whether on purpose or out of necessity due to lack of sleep I do not know exactly). Being that this one is somewhat local to me (Oakland), I knew I had to add it to my list to try out. It seems like cold [...]
