A few months back I was commissioned by Diablo Custom Publishing to create images for an annual publication, the Visitor Guide for Visit Tri-Valley. Having lived in the Tri-Valley for my first three years in the Bay Area, I enjoyed the opportunity to return and get to know local brewers, winemakers, and the talented team behind Visit Tri-Valley. I’ve shared a few tearsheets and outtakes below but encourage you to check out the entire guide for more inspiration!
Thanks to Diablo Publications, I've been assigned to many fun, challenging, food-centered shoots this year. Not only that, but I've had several opportunities to get to know talented, creative professionals in the East Bay food and service industry. (Lucky me!)
One of those professionals was David Fleury, a cheese expert at Whole Foods in Dublin, California who I had the privilege of photographing for Diablo's November issue.
