AMBROSIA

Being camped at Champagne Lounge in the Middle of Black Rock City certainly has its advantages. There are tons of people that walk down our street “Rod’s Road.” I was able to just hang out under our shade until someone who caught my eye walked by and I would go ask them for a photo. This chick looked totally cool. …

DREAM

The Dream sculpture by Laura Klimpton and Jeff Schomberg. This beautiful piece graced the playa this summer, but found it’s home just a few miles from my house here in Arlington, Texas. I love that there is a piece of the playa so close!

CROWNING EMBRACE

This was one of those times that you realize you don’t know what is going on at Burning Man, you only think you do. I doubt there has ever been a bigger daytime burn, as this one was done just after sunrise. I was there with plenty of time to spare and all set up. Unfortunately, a gigantic art car …

THE NIGHT COLORS OF NEVERWAS HAUL

One of my favorite parts of Burning Man are the Art Cars and Mutant Vehicles. These artist bring imagination and mechanics together to create these unique cruisers. Part tractor, part train, part Victorian house and all steampunk is the great Neverwas Haul. I’ve seen this vehicle the last few times I’ve been and it is still a favorite to behold. …

ON THE FENCE

Here’s an image from a recent photoshoot I did for Tony Lama Boots. All the lighting tutorials I’ve done and photography classes I’ve taken over the last couple of years have culminated into being able to do this. Did you know the creator of McDonalds didn’t start his business until he was 50? It’s never too late to follow your dreams!

EGO WILL BURN

I’m really excited about a workshop I’m attending this weekend. I get to spend 2 days with Renee Robyn going over her beauty lighting setup and then on to post production the next day. I’ve been in a little funk as far as processing new photos lately, so I’m hoping to spur the muse this weekend. Laura Kimpton’s 2012 Burning …

THE WINGED ONE

Wow, it seems like just yesterday was my first Burning Man. It’s weird to think that my next will be my 5th time to go. It is kind of surprising how many pieces of art make return appearances every year, yet there will always be something new and amazing. Getting great photos out there is almost too easy. You can …

THE MEMORY OASIS

It was really an adventure getting to the Great Sand Dunes National Park. My buddy James Brandon and I were traveling around taking photos and enjoying all the beautiful landscapes. This was our last stop until we were homeward bound. We had already been to White Sands, New Mexico and Arches National Park in Utah. The RV had a tire …
