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? Can’t wait to restart that tradition…Check out the article here and the recipes for spring greens, including the vegetable soup below.

I had to laugh when I saw this opener I shot for Carquinez Magazine’s garden section. Carquinez Magazine is new and it’s smart and funny; the gardening section is full of tips; humorous and helpful. The story that I photographed is about Rachel and Tom Ferguson. I met them a few years ago when they went an entire year without shopping at a big box grocery store, surviving only on their own homegrown food supplemented by the local farmers market. Now they have started selling their own vegetable starts and native plants grown specifically for the microclimate of Vallejo. They’ve become very popular.

My veggie burger shoot just came out in Sierra Magazine. For this project I shot everything separately and then the photoshop began…

My short film about SPAWN’s restoration of Lagunitas Creek has been selected for the Festival of the Moving Image, City College’s annual show of the “best work created by CCSF’s cinema and BEMA departments.”

It’s an honor to be chosen and I’m excited to see SPAWN get some attention for their work helping to bring the coho salmon back. I couldn’t have done it without their help and amazing footage and I hope it will convince others to support them. The coho salmon have a long ways to go to return to their historic population but the restoration is helping give them a chance. Please consider supporting SPAWN with donations or volunteering for them.

And come see the show at the Roxie, 3117 16th St, San Francisco, Wednesday December 4th at 6:15 and 8:45pm. Last year it was a great show with some real talent. There will be a party after the 8:45 show.
