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.

A beautiful morning along the Texas Coast.

The Blue Morpheus Camp was full of awesome people. They are based out of Seattle and are really chill. I was introduced to them by a friend I met last year and was glad to get to hang out.
At Burning Man last year, I always wanted to go out on an art car, but it never happened. So when I got the opportunity to go this year, I was really excited. Little did I know what type an adventure we were in for. It started off as normally as Burning Man can be. We went to this party at the Hotel Ashram Galactica, which was this amazing camp decked to the nines. It had a cool meditation dome with bells and chimes and pillows all around. The full bar was a separate 50×100′ tent that was absolutely slammed. They had these tents that were more like rooms with antique furniture and decorated very elegantly. Ashram Galactica had it goin’ on!
From there we headed toward Opulent Temple and noticed the winds starting to pick up. We didn’t stay at Opulent long as the winds were getting stronger and stronger and decided to start to head back to camp. At this point it got really nuts. The temperature was in the low 50′s, but the wind was gusting easily at 60mph. And here I was on top of this art car riding the storm like Lt. Dan in Forrest Gump. Visibility was nearly zero. Peds and bikers would dart in front of the headlights then disappear just as quickly. Eventually one of the passengers got off and guided the Morpheus using lasers like runway lights.
When we got back to their camp an hour later, all the passengers were completely covered in dust. It was awesome! I went back to check on my camp, and thankfully it was still there. One of my supports to my shade structure broke, but that was the only damage. I wrapped it in duct tape and it was good to go. All in all, it was a fun and unforgettable night atop the Blue Morpheus. I can’t wait to chill with these folks next year!

This sculpture called Starport 2012 graced the entrance to Center Camp at Burning Man. It was so cool. At night it lit up with color changing LEDs. I want to build one over my driveway.

I took this on my last night while working for RIMOWA in Canada. I’d really like to go back and visit one day. Everyone was really nice and chilled.

Have you ever been next to awesomeness and didn’t even know it? A few years ago I was really into R/C car racing. It’s a 2 man sport where one guy drives and the other guy “pits” and refuels the car. I usually went by myself and asked around for drivers not in my class to be my “pit guy”. Well, I was asking around one night and saw this dude that looked really cool… so I asked him. He said “sure, if he had time” (which he didn’t). But I found out later that he was this super stud racer with sponsorships and magazine deals (who went on to win the main race that night). I was so embarrassed for even asking. It was like asking Michael Jordan to inflate your basketball, or +Trey Ratcliff to carry your camera bag.
I’m sure we all have had brushes with greatness without realizing it. I’d love to hear your story. Let me hear from ya!

This is one of the last shots I took on last Saturday’s Dallas Photowalk. I usually get started around this time, but the walk began at 3:30, it was really hot, and the family and I were getting pretty spent. It was nice to get to hang out with some other photographers and get a little exercise. This is the first HDR that I’ve posted taken with my new D800. Upgrading is fun, but you soon realize that you have to upgrade other stuff too… like RAM.

I took this photo in Dallas while out walking with James Brandon and Scott Jarvie, while he was in town. I had never been to this part of Dallas before and it was really cool. It didn’t hurt that it had just stopped raining and there were low clouds clipping the tops of the buildings.

It was a whirlwind trip to NYC and I was trying to squeeze in as much street photography as possible. This was on our last day and I got up early to walk over and shoot the Apple store. On my way there I stopped to set up and shoot this Gucci store window.
