This past weekend, I set out to capture some photographs for a new wine brand that I oversee. Shooting 12 locations in San Francisco in under 3 days was no small undertaking but I planned ahead and was up for the challenge. With the help from some of my San Francisco friends, I successfully captured over 1,700 photographs in just two and a half days.
The bonsai trip provided me with a new appreciation for the city, for my home away from the city and gave me a feeling of gratitude for all of the great friends (some new) that helped to make this shoot possible.
Sometimes experience is the best teacher and this weekend only proved that saying further. This shoot left me feeling much more confident as a multi-dimensional photographer. I love landscape photography and because of that, it’s easy to find a rhythm in it and forget to challenge yourself in new ways — to take more portrait shots, to plan ahead, to trust your instincts and explore new settings. Below are some of my favorites from the weekend.
