I like to help launch small businesses and  Tia Maka’s Tamales was a fun project. Sandra Jimenez has always made tamales for friends and wanted to start a new business. I helped her with photography by emphasizing the homemade quality of her food, the ingredients, the sauces and the deliciousness. I’d like one now, please.

SierraCover_20150212_0034Sierra Magazine featured four urban farmers from my book Backyard Roots for their annual Food issue! Above, Jonathan Chen,  became the director of the Danny Woo Community Garden in Seattle after surviving cancer as a college student. He worked with immigrants in the terraced downtown garden and introduced a kids program and chickens. Other urban farmers included Alex Winstead, an organic mushroom farmer who began his career as a hobby growing mushrooms in his basement, Rachel Hoff and Tom Ferguson who lived for a year without setting foot in a grocery store and Lee Kindell who introduced kids to aquaponics at his downtown hostel.

Apropos Promotions makes high quality promotions for top companies and I was excited to work on photographs for their new website. I worked closely with owner Ann Wilber and we created banner layouts that showcased their beautiful work. Here are a few favorites:


20140630_0003I worked for the San Francisco Chronicle for the first time earlier this month photographing Chef Stephen Barber of Farmstead in St Helena. Barber, who has loved barbecue since he was a boy, shares his tips an a recipe for a spicy rib rub here. YUM! BBQ

Anderson Valley is a three-hour trip from San Francisco and is  known more for its rugged beauty and as a “pot growing paradise”. Who knew it is the new spot for pinot noir? I went out there recently for the Wall Street Journal and photographed rising stars in the pinot world:  Jason and Molly Drew of Drew Family Cellars and Wells Guthrie of Copain Wines. I’m excited to return soon to photograph Jason Drew’s 26 acre vineyard in May. blogcollage


About a month ago I worked on a shoot for Green Beans Coffee, a company you may not know unless you happen to be stationed on a far away base in a dangerous land. Then you know them well as a cafe  to relax at and get a taste of home and as a company that dedicates part of its profits to giving back to those who serve.

Now they are bringing their high quality coffee and food to the rest of us! I worked with amazing food stylist Randy Mon and we spent several days photographing their delicious sandwiches, soups, salads and pastries. I spent another day photographing their roasting facility. I loved the old world vibe! What a great company and what a great project! Here are a few favorites…

I started the year off with a two-day shoot for a really great website that I work on from time to time with food stylist Pouké Halpern and styling assistant Christina Milne. We’ve done over 600 recipes for the website that is all about treating health conditions with healthy, easy-to-make recipes. Start the year out healthy, check out



I’ve photographed  many websites lately and one of my favorites is Gift a Feast. I worked closely with Gypsy Achong as she developed her gift basket business that’s based on the very best local artisan food. From chocolates, toffee, and honey to olives, salames, flat bread, cheese, and even a tea ceremony set, she’s curated the best of the bay area. After selecting your gift you also choose the wrapping paper and then it’s sent with a hand written card. Check out her website, see what I’ve been working on and order a gift in time for the holidays. You will become very popular…
