THE WANDERING LOOKOUT

September 19th, 2014, posted in 2014, Blog, Burning Man, Nevada

Another amazing art installation graces the playa while a giant, golden, fire-breathing dragon flies by. Each day out here is so special and you want to see everything. It’s not until you view other people’s photos that you realize how much you missed. But it’s all good. Everyone’s experience is different… and so far each of my 4 years at Burning Man have been awesome. I’m ready to go again. The man burns in 351 days.

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!

COMEDY

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.

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.

DOWNTOWN DRIVE

May 15th, 2012, posted in Uncategorized

Walking around Dallas with +James Brandon and +Scott Jarvie the other night was a ton of fun. I had never been to this sculpture in downtown before and it was quite impressive. There is a Dallas photowalk coming up on the 26th. It begins at the Dallas Farmers Market and goes all over the place, but I’m not sure what time. I’ll find out and let you guys know. Ya’ll can come out and take pictures with me and I’ll talk through a few setups if you’re interested. #Dallaspw

DEATH VALLEY SAVANNAH

May 8th, 2012, posted in 2012, California, HDR

Here’s one from my trip to Death Valley last fall. By the name I assumed it would be uninhabitable desert, but there was tons of wildlife and vegetation everywhere.

Here’s one from my trip to Death Valley with the G+ Guys in 2011. By the name I assumed it would be uninhabitable desert, but there was tons of wildlife and vegetation everywhere. That's not a texture in the background, it's a mountain. It kind of looks like crazy clouds.

THE NEW YORKER

April 24th, 2012, posted in 2012, Blog, New York

It’s a little weird now being back home and not shooting all day out on the streets. I loved being in NYC. I wouldn’t want to live there, but it would be really cool to rent a room for a month there to really take it all in. I wonder which would be the best month to do that?

A WHISPER WAS AN ECHO

January 4th, 2012, posted in 2011, Arizona, HDR

This is perhaps my favorite photo so far from my recent trip to the Grand Canyon. If you’ve never been, it is just breathtaking.We searched for a spot where there weren’t many tourists, and it really paid off. It was super quiet except for the occasional rumble of thunder off in the distance. I can’t wait to get back and explore the Grand Canyon some more!
