Movember Project – Send a Clip, Help Raise Awareness (and it’s FREE)!!!

Not me….I can’t do this in just 11 days!

At CHOWstudios, we’re men. We’re the kind of men who fall down, twist an ankle, spit on it, tape it up and get back in the game….but we’re also mindful of things that men MUST address and are too important to ignore.

We’re participating in our 4th Movember and while we like to think we do out part, we hope we can do a bit more this year.

EACH of you can help a little bit Mo’….by taking a quick clip of your face and your Mo’ with a phone, DSLR or other device and send it along to us to be included in a not-for-profit very short film to further the effort of raising awareness. Do us, and ALL men a favor and spend 5 minutess taking a few quick clips of you & your Mo’ and send it along via the link below. We’ll take all of the clips, massage them and pop out a finished project in nuthin’ flat.

We don’t have much time, so hurry and submit your clips at the link below:

…or email it to us:

Follow @chowstudios to get the link to the final product when it’s complete.

(Ladies, help the fellas! Please do us all a favor and send this to your favorite Mo’ farmer and ask him to help!!)

Thanks and Go For Mo!!!!!

We’re fortunate enough to live and work in Sonoma County, where the light and the soil provide us with some pretty great results. Just on the other side of the glass doors where we shoot is the studio garden. We were in the studio last weekend cleaning up from the previous week’s work and doing some reorganization of new props and I looked outside and saw that we had another batch of tomatoes, carrots and other things that were ready to be picked. The result is this. We love the character of the carrots and the richness of the tomatoes…. and we love sharing them with you.

Have a great tasting weekend!

It was a great harvest this year. Most folks are already completely done with their pressing and everything is in tanks and will soon be wine.

Here’s a tribute to harvest : a 200 year old bottle of port from the Alto Douro.  (for those who are more into the food and less into the wine, we’ll move back to food next #fpf)
