The 2016 Napa Valley Film Festival just wrapped up. I started photographing the event during the first festival back in 2011, and I can't believe how much it's grown up since up then. Every year, it gets bigger and better.
I don't get all that star-struck, but it is a surreal feeling when I walk past Aragorn (Viggo Mortensen) in the hallway or run in to Snake Plissken (Kurt Russell) backstage. Or turn around at a party and see Cuba Gooding Jr. standing next to me. Or Katie Holmes say "excuse me" as she walks past. I try to be all cool about it on the outside, but inside, I'm all, like, "OMG! It's the king of Middle Earth!"
Here are a few of my favorite images:
