When I returned home from assignment last night, I was thrilled to find my October 2011 issue of National Geographic Traveler Magazine with an image of mine on the cover. Two months in a row! I really need to go and get a lottery ticket This image was made at the Brick House Winery in Dundee, Oregon for a story about Oregon Wine Country. The creative director from National Geographic Traveler found the image on my website and thought it would illustrate the issue about Real Food Experiences and I couldn’t agree more. I have always found this image to be one of my favorites, as it is romantic, but not in a saccharin sort of way. When I look at this photo I can remember all the aspects of the shoot – particularly thinking about how nice it would have been to be in the photo drinking wine on that lovely evening in the vineyard. It was a wonderful night and now the memory has been brought back to life thanks to the staff of National Geographic Traveler Magazine. Cheers!

Last year I was assigned by VIA Magazine, the travel magazine for AAA members, to photograph Oregon Wine Country for a Weekender story in the magazine. It was a delightful shoot and the weather cooperated as we covered some beautiful activities in Dundee, Oregon. I’ve had the opportunity to shoot many of these wineries before, but it was great to have such a well rounded tour of the area for an assignment. One of the highlights was taking a wine tour on horseback through Equestrian Wine Tours. I’d photographed on horses before, but this was the first time where we were served wine! Of course, drinking while riding is discouraged, but that didn’t stop us from enjoying the gorgeous views, exploring the vineyards from areas only accessible by foot or, of course, horses.
