This Spring I had an editorial assignment with Macalester Alumni Magazine, it was an awesome opportunity. We went to Sonoma and Napa California to photograph four alumni working in the wine industry. We drove the hills and valleys of wine country met some interesting talented people living and working in the area. From winegrape growers to wine makers in small family run business to the large wine-producing companies. It was beautiful driving on the twisting roads with the vineyard-laced hills as far as the horizon. Reminiscent of Tuscany the area has over 400 wineries, lined up along side the roads. Everyone was very welcoming and generous, I would love to go back in the fall for harvest.
