CNA/NNOC Convention was held at the San Francisco Marquis Marriott for the 100,000 member strong union and association of Registered Nurses in September of 2017. These nurses are the real deal and today at the frontline of standing up for what is right and just in American society. Delegates deliberated over healthcare rights, patient advocacy, environmental justice, immigration rights and collective bargaining rights. Guests and speakers of this convention included California Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom, Senator Bernie Sanders, Jane Sanders, Van Jones, and Nina Turner. Check it out!
It was awesome getting the opportunity to photograph the internationally acclaimed cocktail bar Trick Dog in San Francisco's Mission District. Josh Harris and Scott Baird (The Bon Vivants) are awesome dudes and clearly are two of the most prolific wizards of fine swill in all the land. Check out portraits, interior and cocktail shots below.

Ted moved from Boston to San Francisco in the 1960s. He worked for major airline companies and got his beautiful 1964 Ford Galaxie from a no compete contract from those early days. He's a trip, charismatic, jocular and smooth. Thinking about him navigating the "Mad Men" style corporate world of that time brings a smile to my face. Minus the workplace misogyny, of course. He rubbed shoulders with the high society of that time, with hip jazz cats like Cal Tjader and dinners with Ted Turner from sailing connections. Another perk of his job was that he could fly anywhere in the world with company for free. As I gather, he would always have a woman in tow and his favorite getaway was down in Brazil. And ladies, watch out, he's still got his mojo, with a radar like I've never seen that will engage his irresistible flirtation your way without fail if he catches you in his sights.
