In August I did photography for Monster Pho’s new website. Check it out .Their food is fresh, delicious and very popular Vietnamese Street food and that’s not all. Since the pandemic Owner Tee Tran has been making 300-1000 meals a week for World Central Kitchen as well as giving away free Vietnamese coffee to health care workers and encouraging customers to donate PPE equipment by giving them 50% off their bill.
Come support this amazing business and get a really delicious meal too.
Wednesday September 9th the smoke from all the fires darkened the sky and blocked the sun in San Francisco. A sobering day unlike any I’ve ever experienced.
Ellyn Kail from Shutterstock Custom blog interviewed me for a story about using backgrounds for photography. My advice: don’t use something too generic. Get creative, use unexpected colors and find stuff on the street. Get more tips here. Below is one of my photos they used to illustrate the article.
Way back in February I did this Pride Shoot for Wayback Burgers. A lot has happened since then but we can still celebrate. Happy Pride! Stay safe.
Last August I got sent to a ranch! Aspen Meadows Pack Station at Pinecrest has about 100 horses and they will take you out horseback riding, fishing, or to your backpack camp in Emigrant Wilderness. The ranch is family run and most of the cowboys and cowgirls have worked there for years. They’re the nicest people you’d hope to meet and visiting them is like stepping back in time. They eat together, bunk together and there’s no internet! So much fun and such a beautiful place; definitely book an adventure with them this summer.
Here’s my two favorite photos from a Soif Restaurant shoot in Santa Cruz with Chef Tom McNary for California Bountiful taken back in January 2020. Remember when you could go to restaurants?

Chef Evan Gotanda of Salt House. I photographed him back in December for California Bountiful Magazine. He shared his recipes for homemade pasta and sauces. Delicious comfort food, perfect for the times.
