Editorial Feature | Diablo Magazine

It’s not everyday you get to photograph birds of prey alongside a powerhouse of an editorial team. Thanks to this month’s issue of Diablo Magazine, I had a chance to do just that.

Congratulations to Lindsay Wildlife Experience for their 18 Diablo Best of the East Bay shout outs received over the years and to all of the local businesses earning their well-deserved recognition in this issue. Take a peek at the Complete List of Winners! Diablo works hard all year long to share and celebrate all that our community has to offer.

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!
