WonderTune Tequila

WT Tequila
It’s been only 8 hours since I returned from my 5 day trip to Guadalajara, Mexico. I went to Guadalajara for the first time 3 years ago to photograph one of Mexico’s most loved dish, birria. This time around, I wanted to go back and document the process behind making tequila. With a running shot list in mind, I landed at Guadalajara ready to hit the ground running. My guide and friend, Chuy Tovar, is a business consultant working primarily in the tequila and restaurant industry. He invited me to join him on his next business trip and I couldn’t say no. But as the hours and days passed by, I realized that this wasn’t really going to be much about tequila at all. And this was a good thing. As much as I enjjoy GOOD tequila, seeing the people that work so hard to produce this liquor only made me appreciate tequila even more. Through my limited comprehension of Spanish and Chuy’s interpreting, I was able to share many laughs and stories with people I would never in my life meet. They won’t be easily forgotten as well. There’s only so much I can share through photography, and until you go yourself, you’ll understand what I felt this weekend meeting the wonderful people in the small towns of Jalisco.  Give me some time to prepare the story and photos, and I will share.  Enjoy the mix and thanks for reading.
