Family Portraiture

These are my friends Brook And Kristi Sebok and their 3 gorgeous kids. They asked me to do a family portrait (which I don't normally do) and I said "only if I can art direct" (they're both art directors). As a location I choose the old Safeway in downtown Monterey which has been turned into a Trader Joe's since. The results are fun (I'm sure their parents didn't get it) and it's nice to have a record of that scuzzy old Safeway.

Charlie & Co.

I found this image while cleaning out some files the other day.  It's Charlie Trotter snapping pictures of his kitchen team at last year's Pebble Beach Food & Wine event.  He had about a half a dozen cell phones and digital cameras from everyone so it took a while.  It reminds me of how little you get to enjoy the local scenery while you're on location.  Unfortunately the nice view was behind him...
