The art of the personal project is a crucial element to let potential buyers and creatives see how you think creatively. Here’s a glimpse of one project we have in the works, titled “Workplace”. You really don’t need to travel that far to find the right subjects to bring an idea to life. Do some serious research, then knock on a few doors with a friendly smile and you’d be surprised how many willing participants will agree to the idea. Then the project might just snowball as in our case – we’re starting to lose count of our subjects. We simply love environmental portraiture. Images with a narrative. Characters’s that make you want to engage and ask questions. This project is ongoing for us and centre’s itself largely around our neighborhood in downtown San Francisco. A little sample below – we’ll continue to showcase more in small doses.

In continuing our series on makers and artisans of San Francisco we recently had the pleasure of photographing head distiller of Gin company Distillery 209, Arne Hillesland.

Headquartered right on the Bay, a stones throw from the SF Giants baseball team, this is the only distillery in the world that is built over water – on renovated Pier 50 in San Francisco. The natural cooling properties of 13 feet of San Francisco bay water beneath the pier keeps the air temperature in the distillery perfect for distilling all year-round.

Arne is a Bay area native who embodies the Renaissance nature of many of those who inhabit this unique city. Prior to morphing into a world-class master distiller, a.k.a Ginerator, this amateur chef and saxophonist took a twenty-year journey through Silicon Valley and a career in high technology manufacturing and engineering, followed by a detour into start ups and artificial intelligence.
