Chromatic Cafe, Downtown San Jose. Now Open, featuring my work

The new Chromatic Cafe Downtown San Jose location is open! And my work is featured on the walls!

I’m really thrilled to be able to share my work Downtown with everyone! I used to work downtown in college, and for a short while afterward, too. I still do photography around DTSJ as well – I have photographed the official headshots for San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo as well as other city representatives. So while that work is hanging in City Hall three blocks away, THIS work is what allows me to be creative in a genre that pretty much everyone can enjoy.

I first started shooting landscape photography purely out of boredom after thinking “THAT’S not hard. I can do that…” (most of you know me for my commercial photography, sports imagery, or wedding photos… right?)

And while I sell prints online, and have the last several years, I rarely see them in person. Because, let’s face it, I don’t print all my work because I don’t own a 20,000 sq/ft house to hang it all in, sadly.

But head Downtown! Grab a coffee, and check out the images I selected to hang on the walls!

17 N 2nd St, San Jose, CA 95113 (google maps:
Mon-Fri, 7a-2p (times will adjust as business hours/needs require, but to start off they’re sticking to similar hours of city businesses!)

Check out images of the new cafe below! Along with a few details on the photos I currently have hanging up!

So what images are featured?

I selected a series of photos that are mostly Bay Area related. Oh, if you want to see the interior of the new cafe, keep scrolling!
Since this location is Downtown, I wanted to keep everything “South Bay” as much as possible. Although I do have a killer shot of the Golden Gate at sunrise I may rotate in at some point.
Or just go order a print directly here:

Woodside, Purisima Creek Redwoods. (available here)

Santa Cruz surf at sunset. (available here)

Shark Fin Cove, Davenport. (available here)

Big Basin Redwoods. (available here)

Lake Tahoe pier weather-series. These are three different seasons, displayed on metal at the cafe. I just realized the preview image here on my blog is cropped a little off center. But the prints in person are a-ok! (available here)

Battery Park morning fog, San Francisco. (available here)

Laguna Beach, at sunset. This is easily my most popular print, which is why it’s included in this series even though it’s from Southern California. Displayed 30in by 40in on metal it looks amazing! Seriously, go to the cafe just check this one out! (available here)

All prints, and others, are available online in my webstore at Sizes from 12×18 up to 30×40 (for custom sizes contact me directly)

Ok, so let’s see the cafe!

Racks are stocked and ready to go!

Take some home with you! Or, in this case, back to the office!

You know, I forgot to take photos of the walls with my photos… the irony

7:02am. The first customers at the cafe! Right after opening
