premiere napa valley 2015

Last week, I wrapped up photographing another Premiere Napa Valley.  It's a week-long celebration of the latest releases wineries around Napa are making.  Retailers, media, and sommeliers from all over the planet congregate in Napa and sample the latest offerings -- often straight from the barrel.  Premiere ends with an auction where people bid on lots that will eventually be delivered once the wines are bottled.

It's always an honor to be chosen to photograph these major events.  Especially for the Napa Valley Vintners.  The event also helps raise money for local charities.

It's also a great way to get my photos in to the wild.  These types of events have international attention, and my images accompany the stories written about it.  I love to see my name below images used in a bunch of magazines:
