This is a quick read, but it will give you insight into some of the conditions, opportunities and beliefs about the Napa workers.

When I worked at a color lab in Los Angeles, I was fortunate enough to meet many interesting people. Several politicians, celebrities and of course well-known photographers like Legendary Lensman Julian Wasser. One day he came in the shop and in passing by he asked me if he could take my picture, at first I thought he was joking and I said sure, as long as I can use it on my site.
To my surprise, he said Okay!
So here it is, a photo of me, shot by Julian Wasser.
I hope you richly experience the beauty of the Western States, especially the Northern California region of Napa.
I will write about each image, so you can sense the same feelings and experiences that I had while capturing them with my camera. Some images I took in sections and merged them together while post-processing. This technique, I found out after many trials and errors, was the best way to bring out clear, sharp images.
On occasion, I have taken an image and created paintings out of them. Some I have used to created 3D Models of. Whichever creation you happen to come upon, be assured that you are getting a quality piece that is to be cherished for many years to come.
