It was hard to believe this was Oregon’s winter with sunny, warm temps in the mid 60’s. I’d forgotten how charming this coastal town and surrounding area is, and was delighted to see how many local high quality seafood restaurants were thriving like Local Ocean with fresh locally sourced seafood caught daily.
2014 was an exceptional year with travels overseas leading photography workshops and editorial / commercial assignments & in Burma, Laos, Costa Rica, Maui, Okanagan, British Columbia & Iceland.
In addition, my first documentary film, THE NOBLE SPIRIT was completed and begun the film festival circuit. My fourth wine book, SPECTACULAR WINERIES OF OREGON was published. I also had the pleasure of woking with the best creative team I’ve experienced for a series of videos and photos for the Washington Wine Commission (stay tuned for release in 2015).
THANK YOU for sharing the adventures with me!

The raw, natural majesty of Iceland was breathtaking – one of my strongest memories from this country was the pure fresh smell of the ancient iceburgs permeating the air at Jökulsárlón lagoon. But to put the scale of landscape in perspective, witnessing the 1000-year-old tradition of Réttir (sheepherding) in Skaftartungu, a small village in SE Iceland was the quintessential experience that sums up the connection to the land by the animals and people.
