About 5 years ago a dear friend of mine, Brandon Carneiro, co-founded a unique eCommerce wine business called Somm Select (www.sommselect.com). Brandon studied wine business formally at Sonoma State University, earning an MBA in the subject. He teamed up with Ian Cauble (of Somm Films), one of the few Master Sommelier’s on the globe, and today Somm Select is one of the leaders in wine eCommerce.

I’ve had the privilege to work with Brandon and Ian to photograph their endeavors. We’ve worked locally to document their visits with some of the more prestigious winery properties of Napa Valley and Sonoma County, and we even traveled internationally together where I photographed Brandon and Ian’s journey’s through the French Countryside, seeking out incredible wines to bring to their audience.

I should also give an honorable mention to David Lynch, the editorial director of Somm Select, as David has joined us on the photo shoots as well. David is an expert in Italian Wine and award winning Journalist, having authored Vino Italiano.

One of our first collaborations for photography purposes was to capture Ian in his element, seeking or “selecting” wines as a Sommelier. Below are some of our images from properties around the Napa Valley and Sonoma County.
