Who is Michael J. Polenske?


The man behind Blackbird Vinyards is equally intriguing, kindly intelligent and delightful. Today I had the honor of photographing Michael J. Polenske managing director of Quellos.

"Karina has a way of working her magic that both puts you at ease and arouses all of your senses simultaneously. She has the rare gift of being able to construct a great picture and bring out the best in her client while making it all fun and memorable. Over the years I have sat through a number of photo shoots, never have I been so comfortable, or so excited about the end result of the process. Best of all, I have a made a new friend!" - Michael J. Polenske

Over the past few years it has always been a treat to giggle with Christine as we discover the next San Francisco Bay Club Magazine cover shot together. Love you Chrsitine!!

“Professional, on time, and a joy to work with…Karina has a way of drawing out personalities and really bringing people to life. In short, she makes my job a lot easier!” - Christine Blake, Marketing Director, The San Francisco Bay Club
