Almaden Valley Art & Wine Festival – Bay Area Event Photographer

What a great time people had at the 36th Annual Almaden Valley Art & Wine Festival! Children of all ages enjoying cotton candy or the granite wall in the Play Area, adults socializing and dancing to live bands, people of all ages eating delicious foods and the older crowd enjoying wonderful tastes from our local wineries or the premium beers! If you missed it this year make sure to mark your calendar for next year!

A huge Thank You to all of our wonderful sponsors:
Xfinity/Comcast, Alice@97.3, 95120 Almaden Lifestyle Magazine, Bloomsters, Del Grande Dealer Group, San Jose Mercury News and City of San Jose to name a few. More sponsors can be found at the Almaden Art & Wine Festival website.

I worked the entire day in the VIP area but slipped away for maybe 30 minutes. As I walked the festival late in the afternoon here are a few images I captured.

A Taste of Los Gatos / Los Gatos Magazine / Los Gatos Event Photographer

Chrissy Derksen, of Los Gatos Magazine, and I had a great time at the “A Taste of Los Gatos” event this past Sunday held at Black Ridge Vineyards. What a beautiful venue to have such an event!

We tasted wonderful foods from some of the favorite restaurants of Los Gatos and sampled delicious wines and premium beers from some of the finest winemakers and brew-masters!

All proceeds from this event directly supported the Los Gatos-Monte Sereno Police Department.

Enjoy some of the images from the “A Taste of Los Gatos” event.

2012 Leadville Trail 100 I Event & Sport Destination Photographer

We photographers tend to put our own work on the back burner. I am working my way backward as well but this event happened back in mid-August 2012. For more information on this 100 mile bike race in Leadville, Colorado click link here 2012 Leadville Trail 100. I’m so very proud of Mike & the crew who took on this vigorous race, some first timers too! The crew was sponsored by Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield.
Congratulations to Mike, the crew and all racers for their dedication to year long training! If you ever get the chance to visit Leadville, Colorado you won’t be disappointed. It’s also the highest city in the United States at an elevation of 10,152. Try riding your bike through the mountains at that altitude!

I finally spotted Mike at the beginning of the race.

A few members of the crew.

After Mike finished Ken came over to congratulate Mike.
