I have found a niche in vineyard photography. There is nothing I love more than to be in the vineyard exploring the unique clusters of grapes and finding the best natural light. Early morning light is the best to capture the brilliant colors, illuminated by the sun.
I also specialize in food & lifestyle photography. I have an extensive background in motion & design, and utilize these areas of expertise when working with still images.

About the image
This image was photographed at LDV Winery in southern Arizona. I was hands-on helping with the pressing of the Grenache at the time I photographed the image. I have a passion for the Arizona wine industry and the people behind it. By receiving this international award, I am continuing to promote the Arizona wine industry with my work. I look forward to spending many more hours photographing the vineyards, the harvest, the pressing, the winemakers, the events, the festivals, and whatever else comes my way!
I photograph with Canon's 5D Mark ll & Mark III cameras. I recently add a Mavic2Pro drone to my camera family.
