Mi Peru Restauranté

Mi Peru Restauranté

For a refreshing change from the same old menus… from all places you have been before… time after time…
Try Peruvian!

Everyone seems to expect it to be ultra-spicy and over the top hot with Chili peppers, but it is not that, at all. At Mi Peru Restauranté now located at 1310 19th St, Bakersfield, CA 93301 Phone: (661) 631-1952 (formerly the site of Costa Del Sol, Mexican Restaurant) The food prepared by executive chef/owner Javier Bautista is a fantastic combination of traditional high end Peruvian cuisine and more basic provincial dishes that Grand Mama may have served with all the secret ingredients still intact. This means flavorful fresh sea food, chicken and beef dishes with savory well balanced spices from a region unlike anywhere else in the world. It can be described as a fusion of Spanish and Asian cuisine; however that does not really do it justice. It’s really best if you just go there and try it for yourself.

Bakersfield Magazine Cover: Temblor Brewing

Temblor Brewing Company

This image was created using traditional studio lighting styles combined with light-painting techniques and was shot on location in the brewery after hours so that we would have control over the ambient light levels. A full complement of Paul C. Buff White Lightning strobes modulated by Chimera soft-boxes was used to illuminate the array of beer glasses in the foreground while the huge stainless steel brew tanks in the background were lit using a powerful 5000º Kelvin LED light source that was walked though the shot during the nearly two minute time exposure. The resulting picture was a careful balance in ratio to match the light levels of both techniques to create this all-in-camera (no post Photoshop) practical special effect image.
