Winefest 2017: Broadbent Madiera Tasting

Bartholomew Broadbent led a seminar in the Epicurean Theatre for this year’s Winefest. He sampled these wines for the group:

  • Rainwater
  • Sercial 10 year
  • Verdelho 10 year
  • Boal 10 year
  • Malmsey 10 year
  • 1996 Colheita

Cheeses and desserts from Bern’s paired with the wines, of course, and Bartholomew signed bottles for guests at the end of the tasting.


Along Tampa’s Waterfront: Engagement Session

One of the coolest things about photography as a profession: meeting people from all walks of life.

I’m a curious person. I want to learn all about you. It would be a little awkward to grill you with questions though, wouldn’t it? But when we shoot an engagement session together…we can joke around a little, tell stories…and if you’re willing to play, well that’s the best! These guys (and their star pup) were super fun.  The wedding was overseas, but I’m looking forward to photographing their reception at the Oxford Exchange here in Tampa.


After-School All-Stars Fundraiser

I really enjoy photographing fundraisers for non-profits. It’s an interesting opportunity to learn about the good that’s being done for a community. How many times do you get to be surrounded by such warm-hearted people? They usually throw a pretty good party, too! This one, benefiting After-School All-Stars, featured a cooking class with Ming Tsai, a meet and greet with Arnold Schwarzenegger and a fashion show by Marc Bouwer.
