From Bud to Bottle – A year in the life of a great little Hawkes Bay winery is my first ‘coffee-table’ photobook. It tells the story winemaking from bud to bottle at a small boutique winery in Hawke’s Bay. I photographed their vineyards, their winery, their harvesting, their wine making, their bottling and their team over a full year and the book tells their story through my photography.
The book took over a year’s work. Photography every week throughout the seasons and then image selection and post processing, spread layout and book design and finally printer selection and self-publishing. The result is a 96 page, A4 landscape, full colour, hardback story photobook.
