Looking through some older shots to add some samples for some new self promotions. This is one of my favorite people shots. This was one of the last projects I did completely on film. And on my favorite film, Fuji Velvia ISO 50 slide film. At the time I could still get a better shot with higher resolution and dynamic range from my old manual camera and my Nikon slide scanner. But the technology was catching up fast.

Fisheye Sunset at Savoy

I have been preparing more photos from an old shoot for one of my favorite clients. This is a beautiful restaurant on Figueroa Street in Santa Barbara. It is run by a really nice couple who grew up around here. With all of the huge corporations setting their sights on Santa Barbara in recent years it is really nice to see a good local business thrive!

They have really nice photos on the walls too! :-D

Savoy Nights

This week I had the enviable task of shooting and designing a new ad for a great restaurant in town. I love this kind of evening shot, and since the primary objective of the ad was to let everyone know they are now open for dinner it seemed the perfect opportunity for some dusk photography.

If you would like to see the finished ad, watch for the upcoming issue of Santa Barbara Food & Home or contact me for a sneak preview.

Tea Time at Savoy Truffles

Earlier this week I took some shots at Savoy Truffles on Figueroa for their promotional materials. What a great place for a photographer (especially one like me who loves to eat!)

I could have spent all day just taking pictures of their cool tea cups and tea-pots!

Everything is beautifully done there, from the interior to the presentation of the food itself. You can tell they really take pride in what they do. The owners and the employees all seem like they are happy to be there. Which is very refreshing.

I have been a little behind in the photo of the day. So I thought it would be nice to give you another glimpse of the one of the many projects I have going at the moment.

This is a beautiful new restaurant on Figueroa. They have been kind enough to allow me to display my artwork, and I am working on capturing their beautiful atmosphere for their marketing materials.

This Sunday they are starting a Sunday brunch, I'm looking forward to that!

Savoy Truffles

This is a new place that just opened on Figueroa Street in Santa Barbara, "Savoy Truffles." They were kind enough to display my photos in their restaurant. And, I am now working on capturing some images of their beautiful place. They actually took this place down to the studs and crafted an incredible environment inside.

The food is excellent, not to mention all natural. I can highly recommend the strawberry spinach salad and the cappuccino (the one in the photo did not last long after this was taken, it was gooood!) Perhaps best of all, the couple who own the restaurant are locals who grew up here.
