A great project luckily came my way to take portraits in beautiful locations for Genentech with pharmaceutical agency Giant Creative Strategy. On the first day of the shoot we were at Bon Tempe Lake at Mount Tamalpais, located north of the Golden Gate bridge in Marin. Mt Tam is the tallest peak of the Northern California Coast Ranges, and it’s name comes from the Coast Miwok language, meaning West Hill. We discovered another bald eagle at Mt Tam, and as chance/luck had it, a ranger was hanging out and lent us his $ 1,500 binoculars to get a good look at this amazing bird. After 2 sightings on set only a few weeks apart, I have come to think of the bird as my spirit animal.
It was really fun to photograph the talent close-up and personal and to work with the lovely ladies; Michele Adams, Jeannine Giordan and Melissa Vega. We created some strong images that were beautified over at Sugar Digital.

After our shot was over we jumped into Spring Lake, and had a nice swim with my nieces and daughter Kaya.
