Small business portraits at Golden West Signs

We recently had the opportunity to shoot some small business portraits at Golden West Signs.  This little sign shop is run by Derek McDonald, a local sign painter in Berkeley. Derek has done work for many small businesses in the East Bay and beyond, including the Temescal Alley Barbershop and Beauty's Bagels. Back in the day, hand painted signs were everywhere but as everything has moved digital these handcrafted signs became somewhat of a lost art.  Thankfully there are still a few super talented artists that are taking up the torch and breathing new life into this craft. We really enjoyed this shoot and look forward to seeing Derek and his business bring hand made craftsmanship in to the future.
