This is a video of images shot through out the year at the Rosati Family Winery. The idea behind the project was to tell a visual story of vineyard life over the course of a year. The video starts with a time lapse sequence of over 2,000 still images of sunrise over the timespan of […]
Hawaiian Lizard Fish, Synodus binotatus aka Two Spot Lizard Fish. Underwater photography is extremely challenging. For this photo I was swimming between reefs at a dive site called “Marty’s Reef” off the coast of Maui when I spotted two Lizard Fish hanging out on the rubble bottom. To photograph fish you have to look well […]
After much anticipation, planning and preparation the 2011 vintage is in! I have been working with the Rosati’s since 2006 and each year that goes by I learn more about the fine art of wine making.

The “Drifters Gallery” just re-opened July 2, 2011 after a makeover. This is my favorite spot to take photographs at the […]
A pair of Great horned owls (Bubo virginianus) have set up home in a nearby park for the spring to raise two chicks. This same pair have returned to the same area for the last few years. Last year they had two offspring with only one surviving to adolescence. This year they are at it […]
For the second weekend in a row, I was back on the Mendocino Coast, this time on the North Coast near the town of Westport. The weather was variable with showers at night and mostly cloudy days with no wind. The ocean was amazingly calm where the gray sky melted into the gray ocean. The […]

Though the weather conditions and dim lighting were troublesome, I managed to get these three images of a Great Blue Heron (Ardea herodias) and a large white heron […]
