TAURUS ON PLAYA

April 29th, 2013, posted in Burning Man, Nevada

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!

NORTH DOWNTOWN DALLAS

February 28th, 2013, posted in 2013, Blog, HDR, Texas

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!

DAILY PHOTO – THE EDGE OF NEW YORK

June 7th, 2012, posted in 2012, Blog, HDR, New York

During the 3 days I got to spend in New York for the International Auto Show, I spent all my free time out in the city shooting. We bought tickets for sunset at the Top of the Rock. I think next time I’ll pay the “day” price and stay up there longer. It’s not like they clear the place out just for the “sunset” people. Every rail was about 3 people deep and it took quite a bit of waiting to get a good spot.

DAILY PHOTO – I WAS RIGHT NEXT TO YOU… BUT YOU DIDN’T NOTICE

June 4th, 2012, posted in 2012, HDR, Texas, Uncategorized

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!

THE GENTLE S

Can you believe they made me work today? You mean I can’t just sit around an make pretty pictures all the time? Well, I’m taking the time to make at least one, and here it is: A wonderful s curve in New Mexico. I love driving the curvy mountain roads for sure!

VIOLET FAIRY

May 29th, 2012, posted in 2012, Models, Texas

I went to Scarborough Faire Renaissance Festival a couple of weeks ago and had a ton of fun shooting the workers and guests. I love catching people in that moment between minding their own business then realizing they are being photographed. It’s like a moment where they are being most natural before unconsciously smiling or posing.

COMEDY

May 29th, 2012, posted in 2012, HDR, Texas

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.

WHO YOU GONNA CALL?

May 25th, 2012, posted in 2012, HDR, Texas

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.

THE GUCCI WINDOW NYC

May 16th, 2012, posted in 2012, HDR, New York

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.

This is my last week in my 30′s. What a trip.
