Punch Magazine launched its inaugural monthly issue in July and I am proud to be a Photo Director for the new magazine. Punch Magazine serves the San Francisco Peninsula south of the city with great editorial, photography and design content. The goal is to present the spirit of this region and its unique people, events and activities.

I have been asked to do the majority of the portrait photography of the magazine. I love showing people where they live, work and play. And the subjects I photographed in the first two issues had some amazing locations in which to create portraits. All the photos featured in this blog post were created for the first two issues.

The Punch Magazine publisher, Sloane Citron, founded Gentry Magazine. Along with Editor Mickey Nelson, they have charted a fun course telling unique stories. The stories are short, lively reads with lots of photos. My fellow Photography Director Paulette Phlipot covers the rest of the photography which includes some amazing food photography. Creative Director Britt Johnston ties it all together with a lively, colorful design. She is amazing at picking the right photos to catch the eye.

The magazine is available at Kepler’s and online and will be appearing at more places going forward. If you live on the Peninsula you are bound to learn a few things about people and places right in your back yard. If you don’t, it’s still worth a look for the great photos and fun stories.
