Château De Chausse Tasting

I am always excited to shoot wine events in New York City, and this recent seminar and tasting was a lot of fun. My friends at Cornerstone Communications asked me to come down and cover the US release of Château De Chausse wines—a vineyard in France recently purchased by Charles S. Cohen. The venue was held at 979 3rd Ave., also owned by Mr. Cohen in the restaurant Upper Story by Chef Charlie Palmer. The view on the 14th floor patio of the 59th Street Bridge was pretty amazing, and the invited guests and media were treated to a tasting seminar by winemakers Laurence Berlemont and Franck Bailleul, then some more Chausse wines as well as passed hors d’oeuvres from Chef Palmer’s kitchen.

I put together a print ad for Vermont Magazine yesterday. We have a strong entrepreneurial spirit in this state, and I enjoy the collaboration with small businesses who need to put their products in the best light possible. A shout out to Battenkill Brittle, Vermont Moonlight Cookies, Gringo Jacks, Jamtastic, and Benjamin’s Sandwiches.

Sheraton Parsippany

I wanted to share a few pics from a recent shoot in New Jersey at the Sheraton Parsippany Hotel. They have just renovated their restaurant, Amuse, and the food and hospitality is fantastic. I highly recommend staying there if you are in the area or book a group if you have a corporate meeting coming up.

The Little Things

I’m in the process of designing a Jiminy Peak wedding album for next month’s bridal fair and wanted to share this brilliant behind-the-scenes shot that my friend Toby Gelston took as I was setting up a group photo. It’s one of those candid magical in-between moments that happen, and often have the most impact. Stay tuned for the album link, and also check out Toby’s photo geekdom at: https://photorec.tv/


Very happy to spread the Jam with my friends Ross and Danine of Jamtastic, for their new Website http://www.jamtasticjam.com.

The Real McCoy

I wanted to share a shot from today’s shoot in the studio for the folks at The Real McCoy Spirits. I found this old door under our camp this past summer and it’s been getting a lot of use lately. I love composing shots and seeing where they end up. I really like how this one is looking.
