Meet Martijn, he's the marine biologist turned woodworking guru at Ventana Surfboards. I got a chance to visit the shop and shoot while he was working on the companies 100th board. His work blew me away. The epic board has over 800 laser cut reclaimed wood scales perfectly fitted to shape the bottom. The deck is no less stunning. Detailed fish constructed from broken skateboards by @upcycledskateart are suspended in epoxy (@ecopoxy.) The collaboration and craftsmanship is nothing less than incredible and well over 50 hours of solid work. Check out the unveiling at the Capitola Wine Festival Sept 8-9 .
I've always been a fan of a monochromatic color story. This shoot I did featuring Taylor Lovelace is inspired by the simple elegance of a hero color. Playing off her red hair we paired graphic red clothing with a rich red background. Followed by pinks on pink and white on white. So simple and classic, I'm so happy with how the shoot turned out.

Or as I like to call it the best day of the year! I think pizza is the perfect food. Who doesn't love a perfectly crisp crust, warm melted cheese and an infinite amount of topping options. How appropriate that my last two shoots were both pizza related. I recently took these at The San Francisco Cheese School where chef Jocelyn Vanlandingham shared with me the art of pizza making. I'm still daydreaming of her breakfast pizza with a freshly cracked egg on top... YUM! See more on my main site in the head hand feet section.
Maybe not intentionally cruel but we'll do whatever it takes to get the shot. At times that doesn't end up going well for models. Take this shoot with model and USC Track and Field athlete Lyndsey Lopez. That day was already cold and windy here in San Francisco. Our famous fog was starting to roll in further chilling everyone on location. She got her frigid workout in that day all with a smile on her face. Even after I had her to run through the frame again and again and again and again... jumping, stretching, sprinting. Talk about a true champion.
Photography has led to amazing experiences from standing on the edge of a mountain during sunrise to a filming on a soundstage in Barcelona. As fun as that can be some of my favorite experiences are meeting chefs and shooting the dishes they create. Not to mention you get to eat the amazing food once you've got the shot. ;-) Here are some images I shot for a travel magazine and the aftermath once the crew and I devoured the dishes.
Here's some fun new men's fashion I shot with Brands like FILA to Vans. It was a great time and reminded me of the styles around in the 90's. Especially the Tommy Hilfiger! That takes me back!
I'm pleased to share some of my latest work with venteren model Molly. This spring beauty shoot is lit with all natural light in studio. Gotta love these beautiful spring days flooding the studio with amazing light. Check out my website and instagram @jbueti for more.
What an awesome day this was! The theme was a road trip/picnic inspired lifestyle shoot promoting safe driving practices. We got to shoot parks and roads around the always beautiful Golden Gate Bridge as well as some iconic San Francisco neighborhoods.
Those of you who follow me on instagram, facebook and twitter might have already seen some of these. If not follow me on instagram, facebook and twitter or you'll miss out! ;-) These are pictures I shot of the great super bloom happening now all over Southern California. Specifically in Antelope Valley at the poppy reserve. What a day of hiking, amazing fields of flowers and color! If you can make it, get out there!
The Pacific Northwest inspires so many people to get out and adventure. These are images from a shoot I did for The North Face combined with surreal California and Oregon Landscapes.
