Chances are if you are a portrait photographer you’ve seen or heard of Peter Hurley. If you haven’t seen his presentation at the Google + Photographers Conference, check it out on YouTube. We purchased his tutorial on headshots and someone asked me why we needed it. The truth is you can never stop learning, especially […]
We shoot quite a bit in Las Vegas, and people are always interested in what types of photo shoot locations there are. Of course there’s the Strip and downtown (where we like shooting around the graffiti spots) but there’s also places further out that are quite popular including the dry lake bed south of town […]

(roll over Rebecca above to see her before picture) The topic of retouching can be a tricky one. With advances in digital technology, the widely accepted embrace of digital photography by the professional photography community and the saturation of photo enhancement programs, everyone is “photoshopping” these days. It’s expected. […]
Just last month we finally took our team out to explore Pier 24. If you haven’t heard about it, it’s an exhibition space that’s used to showcase photography. Much of the exhibit is from the Pilara Foundation Collection but they also showcase other work outside of the collection. The collection on display during our visit (and […]
We photographed chef Aaron London of Ubuntu for the cover of Smart Meetings magazine last year and got to try out some food there as well which was a treat! This year, he’s a semifinalist for the James Beard Foundation’s Rising Star Chef of the Year Award. In the Bay Area we’re so fortunate […]

In fact, he’s wholeheartedly embracing Giants pitcher Brian Wilson’s signature facial accoutrement. Per a longstanding tradition, when a San Francisco mayor leaves office, their portrait is hung at City Hall commemorating their service. Instead of Newsom’s typically clean-shaven mug, ex-mayor Newsom’s portrait revealed a picture of him wearing a Giant’s cap and full beard a […]
A fun afternoon with a very adorable couple. Instead of the popular locations with iconic and picturesque San Francisco landmarks, these two wanted something a little different, and I was happy to oblige. I won’t lie, there was some clearing of questionable street debris to get the shots but it was worth it. Now anybody […]
Recently, I did photographs of Goh Nakamura – local music hero and star of Surrogate Valentine, a new feature film by Dave Boyle. I also have the honor of calling Goh my friend. This past weekend the film made it’s world premiere at SXSW – It’s been getting a lot of great buzzzz. I look […]
I previously blogged about a shoot with actress and funny woman Zahra Noorbakhsh and got to photograph her again at the studio last week! Her solo show “All Atheists are Muslim” continues in June in San Francisco. It’s a personal and comedic glimpse into her life, as she convinces her immigrant Iranian Muslim parents it’s […]
Love when I can walk to a wedding shoot. We’re so lucky to have San Francisco City Hall –it must be one of the most beautiful in the country! I don’t usually blog photos from civic ceremonies but we had an awesome portrait session afterwards. Such a fun and laid-back couple.
Selecting images for this post brought to light the variety of photography we provide for our business and corporate clients. From photo stations and big bashes, to photographing notables and multi-day conferences. Here’s a smattering of favorites from recent months!
For their engagement shoot, these two liked the idea of the images having an old San Francisco vibe, so we headed to some classic locations around North Beach (where Antonia grew up!). They are so sweet on each other, therefore making my job of capturing authentic moments pretty simple. I’m definitely looking forward to their […]
These two invited me down to South Bay last month to take some portraits in their lovely neighborhood. They are a terrific pair and so sweet with each other. I admit, I love when couples ignore me during a shoot….errr I mean, I love when they get wrapped up with each other and forget I’m […]
Happy New Year Dear Readers! Hope everyone is well. After a most epic holiday season – we enjoyed a nice little break at the studio. We’ve been tying up loose ends, catching up with friends, family, life…
Gene and I recently had the honor of shooting Mayor Gavin Newsom’s official portrait in City Hall. Gene, of course, has shot dozens of portraits, but this one takes on special meaning as it will hang alongside all of the Mayor’s predecessors in City Hall. Mayor Newsom’s time in office comes to an end come […]
These two are so cute together and we had a fun time in North Beach for their engagement shoot. I’m really looking forward to their wedding as they have so much warmth between the two of them. I used to be a bit ambivalent about engagement shoots but have found they are a great way […]
