New client work: Vineyard & Winery Management Magazine

Judd Finkelstein of Judd's Hill Winery. Photo by Jason TinacciNext time you're at the newsstand, pick up the November issue of Vineyard & Winery Management Magazine. They're a new client!

Not only did I shoot the cover and insert photos of Judd Finekestein of Judd's Hill Winery, I also had the pleasure of meeting and working with Tina Caputo, editor-in-chief of the mag. It's so refreshing to meet and work with such down to earth, cool wine industry folks. We had a bunch to chat about while things were set up. She has pups and a connection to a mid-west barbershop that I'd love to visit someday.

The shoot was an interesting one... We arrived in the late in the afternoon to photograph Judd and his band, the Maikai Gents, as they put on a mid-summer's evening concert in the vineyard for the Samantha Brown, host of Travel Channel's "Samantha Brown's Great Weekends". The crowd sipped on Judd's Napa Valley wine as the band strummed some Hawaiian tunes. While the film crew took in the sights and the sound, so did I. Except I forgot camera flash and video aren't a good combo. A friendly tap on my shoulder by the producer was a good reminder. Sorry guys :)

Anywho, check out Tina's article on VWM's website:

Thanks again, Tina!
