Trey Ratcliff and I were out cruising around one night in Black Rock City and came across this guy. I asked if he would like a proper photo and he was down to get a few. We went over by this art car lined with LED’s and fired away. 45 seconds later we had the one.
I made an instant friend at Burning Man and he was cool enough to let me hang out with him for a week at his place in South Beach. Edin Chavez and I were out taking some long exposures on a bridge. While he was getting a wild shot in the middle of traffic, I was playing it safe on the sidewalk and set up for this shot. I think we both came away with stuff we were happy with.
I love the new architecture that is going up in and around Dallas. This is the new Perot Museum just north of Downtown. My family and I took a little day trip there to see all the cool stuff inside. The imagination of the buildings’ designers is out of this world. Every turn held something exciting and new. I would definitely recommend it for out of town friends and family looking for a unique and fun experience. I’m always inspired to create new art after visiting places like this.
I took this photo on my 2013 trip out to California and back. I’m always on the lookout for a good puddle, pond or lake to make a sweet reflection. The secret to a clean reflection is to get down as low as possible with your camera.

It’s been a while since I’ve given attention to my blog. Now that I’m back from Burning Man, it’s time to get back on the horse and see where it goes. I had an awesome time at Burning Man. I got to bring my family and camp with Trey Ratcliff and his family. It was a pretty sweet setup. Trey is such a cool guy and really great friend. It was so cool going shooting with him every day. My family loved Burning Man and can’t wait to go back next year.
Since I began traveling for photography, I would be in a beautiful location and wished Cher and Seth could be there to share the experience with me. Up until now, it just wasn’t possible. But all that has changed now that we have a sweet new (used) RV. We went on our maiden camping trip this weekend and it was really cool. No more bathing out of a 5 gallon bucket at Burning Man. No more overpriced hotels wondering if the sheets were really changed. And best of all, my family gets to see the amazing places I’ve been and am planning to go. Let the adventures begin!
I took this during the Meetup last month at the Chase Tower in downtown Dallas. We were having to shoot through glass in a well lit room, which usually creates horrible reflections. Thankfully, I have a little device called a Lens Skirt, which suction cups to the window and eliminates the unwanted reflections. I think I could have sold them all if I had some extras.
I posted this photo over on Flickr a few days ago and the dang thing blew up. It made their Explore category and it received over 7,000 views in 3 days. I love it when that happens!
