The Winter of Our Content

Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Ōmisoka, or Kwanzaa, I come bearing gifts for the whole lot of you!

It’s the photographic equivalent of stocking stuffers, menorahs, and Amazakes.

Skim or go slowly. But whatever you do, enjoy the photos and the blessings of the holiday season.

Meet Esther Duterte.
She is the founder of Talent Hound.
An agency that delivers recruiting services with a genuine H2H touch.
Esther hired me to create photos for use on the agency’s Home and About pages.
It’s always gratifying to make images of business pros in urban landscapes.
Away from backdrops, gray, black, or otherwise.
Away from strobes and speed lights, from cubicles and offices.
But still right in the heart of the Silicon Valley.
Yes, very gratifying, indeed.

Adobe: Picture Perfect

Overwhelming gratitude.
That’s how I feel when I photograph at Adobe.
Oh, happy, too, of the bursting variety.
So much to say about this set.
But the images themselves will have to do the talking.

It’s Chime for a Change

A change in banking, that is.
Last March, during a break from the rain,
I photographed the Chime leadership team in the City.
When you’re doing corporate photography on Maiden Lane,
It’s best to put the street to good use.
Here are a few headshots from the day.
Scroll, peruse, enjoy.
Thank you.

Of Smiles and Steel

If you have a business partner, you’d better enjoy that person a lot.
As this dynamic duo clearly does.

Laughter is fine and well.
But selling homes often requires a Lady of Steel…

…or a light’s out smile…

…or a willingness to stop traffic, come what come may.

But more than anything, connecting with customers—in real estate or photography—requires candor…

…and sincerity.

And nothing is more candid and sincere than Mom when she drops by for a visit. My favorite kind of photobombing!
