Grand Opening – Aprés @ Four Seasons Silicon Valley

Four Seasons in Palo Alto have a new “Aprés” outdoor-ski-lodge-style addition to their Quattro restaurant patio. I was hired to capture the ambiance, the feel of the setting – couples cozying up to open fire decor enjoying custom Tito’s Vodka-based cocktails. Don’t these photos make you want to check out this place? You should!

Menlo Park Hotel Staff Lifestyle Portraits

There's a new hotel in town – and it's a stunningly beautiful creation named Hotel Nia. I arrived a week before opening, so of course between the final construction, incoming decor and staff training, it was a bit of a chaotic environment to shoot in. Plus the weather was sunny one minute, and pouring rain the next – guaranteeing a variety of settings and a true challenge for the photographer (me). This shoot was dual-purpose – first, to get some food and drink photos for the restaurant, and second to capture some good portraits of various staff for press releases and the website.

Santa Cruz Business Lifestyle Photography - Cooper Technologies

Cooper Technologies is a one-stop IT services/consulting shop located in Sash Mill near downtown Santa Cruz. The staff is super friendly, and I think that comes through in our photo shoot below. We started out with group shots of all-hands, both inside their workshop as well as outside in the alley behind the business. I had a lot of fun since I had full creative freedom – can you tell? Last, we walked to the nearby colocation facility (aka server room) for a few dramatically-lit portraits there. Overall I'm really happy with the results (and they are too!). Enjoy a selection of my favorites below:
