Happy 75th Anniversary Golden Gate Bridge! Fireworks Over the San Francisco Bay!

Sunday May 27, 2012 marked the 75th Anniversary of the Golden Gate Bridge. In celebration of this American icon, there was a whole day of celebration at key sites along the waterfront along the San Francisco Bay and plenty of revelry around the city. The most exciting of which, were the 75th anniversary fireworks show! It was super special as they organizers added a special dose of a fantastic light show to go along with the fireworks. We had a key vantage point from the top of Nob Hill, and of course my camera, tripod and I happily joined in the celebration. Here’s my ode to this amazing icon of San Francisco, America and human ingenuity! Happy Anniversary GGB!

Roberts Family Newborn and Family Portraits at Home | San Francisco Family Photography

Say hello again to the Roberts family!

This is my second time photographing for the Roberts family. The first time was before little Naomi had arrived, when I rambled around Stern Grove with them and their daughter Lily last year. I was so happy to hear from them many months ago when they officially started planning for the arrival of their new daughter, Naomi. Congratulations!

Solo Gallery Show at Whitetail Wine Bar in Guerneville, CA Throughout the Month of May!

I’m excited to announce that Leslie Bahr of Whitetail Wine Bar in Guerneville, CA has invited me to show 11 pieces of my landscape photography in her lovely gallery. It’s a fantastic opportunity that I’m elated over as Russian River wine country  is just entering into the high season and I can’t wait to show my work in print to everyone starting this week and continuing throughout the month of May!

I’ve made ten 16″x24″ fine art prints mounted in archival museum gallery mats and one special 10″x40″ panorama I’m debuting at this show. The photographs range from images made through the window of our apartment in San Francisco overlooking the San Francisco Bay, to my travels throughout the United States, Europe, Iceland and New Zealand.

Of course I trusted none other than my friends at the never less than top notch professional photo lab, PhotoworksSF, to fabricate these prints and mats for me. I stopped by the lab for the pre-matting preview of the prints yesterday and I have never been more excited to see my images on paper.

It all kicks off with a lively First Friday event with guitarist Chris Samler, tasty wines being poured from Whitetail’s owner and proprietor, Leslie Bahr, and of course I’ll be there smiling away as we finish hanging my work and getting everything squared away for this month’s show.

If you’re in the need for a trip to sample some wonderful Russian River wines, please join us this Friday May 4 or anytime throughout the month of May at Whitetail Wine Bar, 16230 Main St. Guerneville, CA.

For more info, see Whitetail Wine Bar’s Facebook page. Looking forward to seeing you there!
