Tickets gallery added

We ate a lot of great food in Barcelona without having to try too hard, but one major victory was scoring a reservation at the famed Adrià brothers’ Tickets restaurant. A tapas bar follow-up to the world-famous elBulli, Tickets felt casual and fun; the food was uniquely presented and delicious. We had a great seat at the counter in front of the kitchen which allowed us to take in all the action. I hope you enjoy...

Barcelona gallery added

It was May of last year when Jon and I set off on our around-the-world journey to Barcelona, Paris, and Bangkok. While I continue to work editing the gigabytes of photos I brought home, I’m happy, finally, to be able to share some of them with you! I’ve just uploaded a gallery of photos featuring my take on Barcelona’s unique architecture that I hope you’ll like. In addition to the distinctive structures, we also enjoyed Barcelona’s...

Tips on shooting from a helicopter

When I went to Kauai in September I knew I was going on a helicopter tour. I had never flown in a helicopter let alone tried to takes photos from one. I feel pretty confident shooting from the ground. I usually know which lens to grab and camera settings to use for a particular situation. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect from riding in a helicopter though so I did a bunch of research...

Kauai gallery added

It’s been a while since I’ve had any new image galleries, but I’m happy to report that photos taken this September in Kauai have made their way online! I have a backlog of photos still to edit from an around-the-world trip to Barcelona, Paris, and Bangkok taken this summer, but I thought it would be quick to get the Kauai gallery up first. This was a short trip, mostly spent lounging by the pool, but I did...

The Restaurant at Meadowood gallery added

Photos from Jon's birthday dinner last September were added in The Restaurant at Meadowood gallery today! Meadowood, located in the Napa Valley in St. Helena, is only the second Bay Area restaurant to earn three Michelin stars, along with The French Laundry. The meal, prepared by Chef Christopher Kostow, was worth every one of those stars. From hand-written birthday cards to delicious, unique dishes and presentations, the evening was perfect. Check out the photos of...

Flying to Asia gallery added

One more set of images from our 2012 trip to Asia was added today in the Flying to Asia gallery! On this trip, the destinations were only part of the story, so much so, that I though the flights themselves deserved their own gallery. We flew Singapore Airlines First Class from San Francisco to Singapore via Hong Kong; ANA Business Class on the shorter 4-hour flights from Hong Kong to Tokyo; and Cathay Pacific First Class on...

Hong Kong Layovers gallery added

The fourth and final set of destination images from our 2012 Asia was added to the Hong Kong Layovers gallery today! Jon and I spent just over 48 hours in Hong Kong, but on three separate layovers while hopping over Asia. We did a surprising amount in that time! We visited Victoria Peak, had dim sum at Lung King Heen, enjoyed xiao long bao at Din Tai Fung (twice!), took a ferry ride to Central, and tried...

Tokyo gallery added

I added the third set of photos from our 2012 Asia trip today in the Tokyo gallery! This gallery features photos from our walks around Shinjuku, Ginza, and Asakusa, as well as meals at Sushi Kanesaka and Tempura Kondo. I hope you like them. Next gallery will be photos from our stopovers in Hong Kong.

Conrad Koh Samui gallery added

I added photos from part two of the 2012 Asia trip today in the Conrad Koh Samui gallery! Check it out and let me know what you think! Photos from Tokyo and Hong Kong are yet to come.

New year, new website, and new blog!

If you haven't noticed, I have an updated website! I've given my photography home a new, modern layout, integrated the site with Fotomoto, and added this blog. The home page is interactive allowing users to pause on an image or flip through at their own pace. The new gallery layout uses square thumbnails everywhere which I think gives a clean, consistent look. Gallery pages also have mobile versions that provide an easy-to-use, swipe-able interface...
