In the beginning of February, I photographed somewhere around 15 profile shots for the Insider’s Guide to the East Bay, part of the East Bay Express. Any time I shoot an editorial assignment I am always curious to see which images the editor will choose. Although I typically edit the photos I show them down to between 5 and 25 images (depending on the client) I definitely always have an image (or images) that I prefer over the others.
Here are a few pictures from the Insider’s Guide shoots that I liked but weren’t included (or were in the case of the photo of Brendan Eliason with his porron or ‘pour on’).

Brendan Eliason, Owner/Head Wine Maker, Periscope Cellars
