The shoot took place in the cold winter days of 2005. Ironically this was for the 2006 Summer catalog for the The Sak. I worked with Art Director Randy Yau and designer Sandi Micone on this shoot which took place over 5 days. Since the concept for the catalog was postcards, we went all over San Francisco replicate a tourists view of San Francisco.
Some of the outtakes from the March 2008 casting call for Adobe.
See if you can pick out who was selected for the final packaging photography.
In the early part of 2009 I had a full crew in my studio to help me photograph some kids. These images were the foundation for the photo illustrations on Adobe’s line of consumer software. I worked with Randy Yau of Tolleson Design who art directed the shoot. John Caponi of Adobe was on hand to approve the photography. We worked with The Blackwell Files for casting.
This was the second year creating images for Adobe. The first was in 2008.
Here is a continuation of my work in the outdoor industry for Overland Equipment. This was a similar shoot to the summer catalog photography we did earlier in the year in Chico. For the winter catalog and marketing material we brought the photography session home to San Francisco.

San Francisco’s Mission Bay medical has been sprouting up buildings near my studio for several years now. One of the new occupants of the complex is Sirna Therapeutics, which is a RNA research arm of Merck & Co.. I was commissioned to create a series of images that give glimpse into their laboratory facilities.
In the Summer of 2009 I loaded up in the car with art director Sue Redding and my assistant Debra Zeller. We began the 5 hour drive through from San Francisco to Chico to scout locations for the next day’s shoot. Thunderstorms were brewing on the horizon even though it was 90 degrees out. We had no idea what conditions we were going to face the following day.
Later that evening we met up with the rest of the crew from Overland Equipment. It was the clients vision was to use employees in the outdoor industry rather than professional models. They sent down a crew of 4 from Portland to be our talent for the day. The weather worked out in our favor and I got hundreds of great shots in a matter of hours. The images have since been used throughout Overland’s catalogs, brochures, trade show, and marketing materials.
I’ve neglected this blog for about 8 months now and I’m anxious to get some new posts up. These images of Chris displaying competitive body building poses was taken in my studio earlier this year. Enjoy and I’ll have a post of a recent trip to Guatemala up this week.
One of the best aspects of living in San Francisco is the quality of life here. I headed out with Ninno to cover just a few of the activities to be found in the bay area. We decided to focus on Mountain Biking for round one.
