"Clearly, the pleasures wines afford are transitory, but so are those of the ballet, or of a musical performance. Wine is inspiring and adds greatly to the joy of living."

Santa Barbara County has a long history of wine making and wine grape growing stretching back more than 200 years to before California was a State. Over the years, I've photographed most of the major players in the industry for a variety of magazines, including Wine Spectator, Seasons Magazine, Food & Home Magazine, and numerous others.
