Thank you for taking the time to learn a little more about my photography and background.
As a born and raised local to the Napa Valley, I’m honored and motivated every day to photograph this special pocket of the world.
My job is to capture professional images that showcase the brand of my clients and tell a story for generations to come.
The wine country of Napa Valley and Sonoma County has been at the core of my life since early childhood. My feather dedicated his entire 40 year career to the wine business, and prior to commercial photography, I dedicated 15+ years to the wine and hospitality management industry. My experience included tenured positions as Sommelier at Meadowood, Executive Management with The Carneros Inn, and Consulting Partner with Full Plate Restaurant Consulting. About a decade ago I made the decision to immerse full time in Commercial Photography.
I’ve loved every minute of the journey.
My background and intimate knowledge of the wine country enables me to provide clients with a unique and insider perspective through my lens.
My photography style is candid and natural with subtle, artistic nuances.
The work specializes in two genres:
Wine Industry Photography – lifestyle and journalistic photography to capture the artistry of wine making and all its nuances. I grew up around the wine industry and I’m proud to share it’s beauty.
Estates & Interiors Photography – commercial images for interior design, luxury real estate, architects, vacation destinations, and bespoke properties.
I pride myself on being fun and easy to work with, maintaining deadlines, prompt communication, and providing clients with captivating images that tell a story for generations to come.
When I’m not working commercially I can be found traversing the Pacific Coast and back-roads of California, chasing light and fleeting moments.
