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.

Shooting for Print

I recently shot a couple wine ads in the studio for Artesa Vineyards in Napa as well as Codorníu Raventós Bodegas in Spain. Two very different types of shots—with one in natural light and another with studio strobes. The challenges that print advertising pose push me to be a better photographer, and remind me why I wanted to do this for a living. (AD design by Brand Robertson)
