One of the many perks of working with a local lifestyle magazine, specifically Diablo Magazine, is getting a sneak peek of up-and-coming local businesses. This month’s issue introduced me to Shadowbrook Winery — “the first winery and tasting room to open in Walnut Creek since Prohibition”. I’m already dying to reserve a tasting overlooking beautiful Mt. Diablo! Also in the October issue is a portrait of Editorial Director, Deborah Kirk, sipping something tasty at another Walnut Creek business (one of my go-to’s) Coffee Shop.

Check out the current issue and, if you haven’t already, stop by these Walnut Creek businesses for wonderful food and drink experiences in my neck of the woods.

Of all the assignments I receive from Diablo Magazine40 Under 40 may be my personal favorite. Not only am I given the opportunity to connect with some of the East Bay's most influential individuals under 40, but I get to hone in on my environmental portraiture skills. 

Take a look at the portraits of Haley Alvarez, Chris Giles, Catherine Aker, Louisa Pickworth, Leily Kiani, and Alicia Williams featured in the September issue!

The July issue of Diablo Magazine was full of exciting assignments, including the magazine's annual 'Best of the East Bay'! Congratulations to the Bedford Gallery, Empire Barbershop, Funkmode, Performing Academy, The Last Word, and the many other local businesses featured!

I don't often get the opportunity to photograph art, especially not 24-foot-wide metal sculptures. Below is Ned Kahn's "Seed Vortex" featured this Spring at the Bedford Gallery in Walnut Creek. Visit the gallery for a closer look at this rotating spectacle!
