The 2017 Napa Valley Film Festival is in the books. Six days of photographing movie stars, chefs, winemakers, filmmakers, and joyous festivalgoers.
This is the seventh NVFF I've documented. I've witnessed it grow into one of the premiere film festivals in the world. Each year, it just gets better and better.
Don't tell the other events that I photograph, but the NVFF is probably my favorite one to shoot. I don't really get starstruck, but I do get a kick out of talking with movie stars. While I do photograph famous people pretty often, I still can't get used to the idea that I have a job which takes me on such exciting adventures. This year, I met Pierce Brosnan, Lea Thompson, Eric Stoltz, Elijah Wood, Will Ferrell, Dennis Quaid, Jim Rash, Ian Somerhalder, Nikki Reed, Tate Donovan, David Arquette, and Michael Stuhlbarg.
With the Napa Valley Film Festival over, that concludes this year's major events. On to 2018...
