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!

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.

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.

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?
