Shot just before we all knew we were going into the COVID SIP. Already now almost three months later, I can honestly say how much I miss creating content without necessary limitations and restrictions of COVID. I truly miss the creative team (shoutouts to Glenn, Keith, John Ross, and Nicole) at Goorin Bros. and the amazing times inside and outside of the Goorin photo studio. Shooting and creating content for all the Goorin Bros. marketing campaigns for the past two years has been such a memorable experience.
Back in August, we packed our bags and headed for the hills of Cerro Gordo, CA, with Goorin Bros., to an abandoned mining town in search of a golden opportunity. Check out the editorial story on the Goorin Bros.’ website.
“Our mission was to capture a contemporary approach towards styling, inspired by Western classics, that speaks to quality American craftsmanship that you can trust. Here’s a small glimpse of what we unearthed. These hardworking, long-wearing hat styles will provide years of enjoyment, and classic elements and trims ensure they will remain fashionably sound for just as long. In the spirit of the miners of Cerro Gordo, you’re gonna dig them.” – Nathaniel Pearce

We had a wonderful time shooting with Idlewild Winery and owner, Sam Bilbro, recently. Bilbro was named Top 40 Under 40 Tastemakers of 2017 and specializes in making hard-to-find, Piedmontese-style wines like Nebbiolo, Dolcetto, Cortese, Arneis and Barbera.
The bottles are so beautifully designed and taste even more amazing.
“Idlewild has a relatively concise aim within a broad context: to produce wines of exceptional balance and beauty. It is a journey to pursue Italy’s Piedmont in the elevated hills of Mendocino County, and to find the sides of these varieties that are intriguing, delicious, and haunting.
Each wine is unique and treated as such, though the common thread is balancing depth and seriousness with vibrancy and joy. Emphasis is on the vineyard followed by minimalist winemaking techniques. While not dogmatic in practice, an honest and sustainable approach is fundamental in making wines of purity.”
Nike opened a new retail store in the heart of San Francisco on Union Street to serve athletes throughout the community on May 17, 2014 and we were there to capture some images for their launch campaign, some of which are up in the store 🙂
The design of Nike Union Street embraces local connections and offers ongoing group training experiences geared towards women, like Run Club on Mondays and Saturdays, High Intensity Training on Wednesdays, Girl’s Night in Workouts, and weekend yoga classes. The new store also has services including head-to-toe styling, bra-fitting, pant-hemming, run analysis, access to NIKEiD, weekly Nike+ Run Clubs, and Nike Training Club classes with partner gyms, like Soul Cycle, and other locations in the surrounding neighborhoods.
