FARMSTEADS OF THE CALIFORNIA COAST




Hi there! As some of you have probably noticed, I haven't been spending much time here, so I thought I'd take a moment to share what has been taking up all my attention. Farmsteads of the California Coast, just released by Yellow Pear Press, is one of four books I had the pleasure of photographing last year. What an amazing project it was, especially for a farm nerd like me.

Novella Carpenter says, “This book will make you want to milk a water buffalo or barbecue some oysters." 

Sarah Henry and I traversed the California coast visiting some of our favorite farms (Hog Island Oyster Co, Gospel Flat Farm) and discovering new ones (Double 8 Dairy, Good Land Organics).... Sarah penning the tales of twelve unique coastal farms and I telling the visual story with my photographs. I couldn't have asked for a richer collaboration.

If you'd like to read more about what folks are saying about the book, you can read here, here and here. And I'm especially excited to see the book featured in the newest issue of Cherry Bombe.

Here's a little visual taste of some of the farms we featured in the book... Or you can see more on my photography website.

      For this book I used my 24-70 Canon exclusively. It's a great all-around lens!
