The Jimador’ or harvester of agave plants is a romanticized profession in central Mexico. Roberto Jimenez Ramos uses his ‘Coa’ which is a unique tool designed specifically for culling the sharp external leaves of the blue agave plant in order to harvest the ‘Piña’, the body of the agave which is baked in large ovens in preparation for making tequila. These piña will be processed by the Tequila Ocho brand in Jalisco, Mexico. You will find heroic paintings of Jimadors in action in bars and restaurants all over tequila country but it’s much better to witness the action in person:)

I recently travelled to Jalisco, Mexico to photograph the world of Tequila production for a new @natgeo and @wsj magazine called Far & Away. The inaugural issue of the mag just came out in print over the weekend, delivered within the Wall Street Journal. ‘Tequila Rocks’ was an epic journey into the blue agave fields East of Guadalajara, to the rowdy bars of Tequila town.

Tequila making 101. This giant stone wheel is pulled by a little electric cart in circles to crush the cooked blue agave and squeeze the juice and sugars out that are then moved to large oak vats for fermentation. Location is Tequila Fortelaza’s @drinkfortaleza Small craft distillery in Tequila, Mexico.

Tequila Fortaleza @drinkfortaleza was one of my favorite stops on our tour of Tequila country in Mexico. Guillermo Sauza (yes, that Sauza) is a seriously cool guy who owns a small craft distillery and hacienda spans a beautiful corner of Tequila town in Jalisco, Mexico. ............................................

La Capilla bar in the town of Tequila, Mexico is a rowdy local scene, with passionate tequila fueled mariachi eruptions coming from its regulars. Here is the talented Juan Carlos Contreras baring his soul... sweating out the demons in an impromptu performance.

Flashback to my third Bering Sea king crab season on the f/v Rollo in 2005 with Patrick, Brian, Eric, Kitty, Matt and myself. This is the year after our appearance on Deadliest Catch Season II as we slid back into relative obscurity... for me a much happier place is behind the camera with the exception of our annual crew portrait. Kitty was celebrating her one year birthday and went into heat shortly after we left the dock.
