peerless coffee, photo by Lori Eanes, advertising, poster,

Peerless Coffee is one of Oakland’s oldest coffee roasting company, a family run business started by John Vukasin in 1920. Besides making incredible coffee, the company has a collection of museum quality coffee artifacts, many still in use. It’s always interesting to have authentic artisan elements to work with and to see one of the photos made into a modern poster is pretty cool too!

I love to photo cocktails (and drink them) and I’ve been lately I’ve been doing both for Oakland Magazine’s cocktail column. In every issue the writer finds a delicious drink and gets the recipe from the bartender. I also photo cocktails for Oakland Magazine restaurant reviews too. Between the two, I thought I’d share some favorites…

Of all the cocktails photographed here my favorite was the Pimm’s Cup. It’s made from Pimm’s No. 1, a spirit from Great Britain. You can get a recipe from  www.foodandwine.com, but it’s so dangerously easy  why even bother. Just mix Pimm’s with ginger ale or lemon-lime soda one to one. Add fruit— apples, oranges, cucumber, mint and ice and you’ve got a great way to end the day. Or, for the best version, stop by East End Restaurant and Bar in Alameda.

Check out the recipe for the Featherweight from Oakland Magazine here. It’s perfect for a summer evening.

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…

Here’s a fun job I did recently for Marin Magazine–one of my favorite subjects–cocktails! I was really excited to see a shot picked for the cover and then a of couple of months later a food cover too. Thank you Marin Magazine!

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…

Here are a few favorites from a fun shoot for the Green Girl Bakeshop website. Lisa Stoy, the owner, founder, and maker creates some incredibly delicious gluten-free, dairy free ice cream sandwiches and ice creams. There’s nothing artificial in her products. Using ingredients like coconut milk and oil, maple syrup, cashews and brown rice flour, everything’s simple and organic. Visit her at local East Bay farmers markets: Montclair Village Oakland or Kensington Market on Sundays, and Berkeley Market (Adeline Street) on Tuesdays.
