I know what you are thinking, haven’t we seen this couples engagement photos. Yes and No, we have posted the first part when they went underwater for me. These are the “official” versions sure to please the happy couple and their families. Our general plan was to take a mini-tour of Austin to show off [...]
Continuing our trend of photographing people in the fitness world, Geoff and I headed out to Red Bud Isle for Stand Up Paddle (SUP) paddling session with Mitch and Marisa.
It’s tougher that it looks. We have all seen the X Games and late night ESPN coverage where guys are doing backflips and supermans like I eat breakfast tacos, often and with ease. After watching an open day at the Austin DelValle MX Track I have newfound respect for all who participate in this sport [...]
Before I get started on my experience, first let me give a huge thanks to my buddy Gordon Poon for making this possible, he is a good guy and a great pilot (because he landed).
I have a bit of a fascination with Steam Punk. I love the idea of aether, gears, lenses and the mixture of leather and brass. So when I heard that there was a steam punk fashion show I was all aboard. Plus a few of my friends were modeling some of the gear. The above [...]
Soooo looking forward to covering Audrey and Mack’s wedding in early 2012! Just a fun couple on my wavelength. A little zany, a little geeky, and very much in love. The engagement session is a combo with some family portraits and pairings at the family farm in Elgin.
Met up with some fantastic hula hooper’s/acrobats/cool gals at Pease Park for a bonus session to our Austin City Lypse.
First part of the First day of our istockphoto.com Austin City Lypse is complete! We started the morning at two locations around Austin, with half the photogs and Pease Park and the other half at Red Bud Isle. My group at Red Bud Isle photographed the runners and stand up paddlers. A special thanks for [...]
What a fun and energetic photoshoot with Alex last night. She needed images for her Dance tryouts in L.A. toward the end of the month, so we covered a few different styles of clothing and dance.
Jennifer and I met at the Bridal Motif Indian Bridal show a few weeks back and hit it off immediately. She had definite ideas of her own and happened to mention one of my favorite photographers, Richard Avedon. One of his muses was an awesome model by the name of Suzy Parker. Jennifer loves Suzy [...]
A Fellow Rogue had seen my Team Rogue Elite work and decided she wanted her two boys to have photos done with their skateboards in front of graffiti with edge lights and sunsets. Awesome. She found a cool spot on east 5th street and we went to town on the raised platforms and graffiti backgrounds. [...]
The post could have been titled, “Maribel Takes over Downtown!” Maribel contacted me about doing a Top Model type shoot downtown for half of her Senior photos, sounded great. I had no idea that she would bring such a commanding presence in front of the lens. Just rocking it all around. We caught more than [...]
Working through the images from the Wedding of Jeff and Cheri this past Sunday, and I was intrigued by the amount of detail and planning that Cheri pulled into this Wedding. Little touches here and there, especially the purple glove that started it all. You will have to ask her about that. So in the [...]
Had a chance to meet up with the awesome blossoming Team Rogue Elite downtown this afternoon for some promotional shots. I won’t bore you with the updated headshots because we have some slamming shots with graffiti, hard lights and a t-rex runner. Hit the link for more
Just finished loading up the 700 or so shots from today’s photoshoot put together by Ms. Kristie from Blushing Veil Events staged at Dunvegan keep and a few downtown. My co-shooter today was Mr. James Griffith. We had a great cast of talented models, willing volunteers, almost co-operative weather, fashionable stylists, wonderful hair and makeup, [...]
Headed out yesterday to the 2011 Austin Marathon downtown. I coached 6 runners in Pflugerville for the Rogue Running mothership. They all made it to the starting line for a tough day of wind, heat and humidity. A quick note to say how proud I am of Amy, Jess, Jen, Glenn, Tim and Dave. Each [...]
Alex and Katie were married at Chapel Dulcinea in South Austin this past Friday. The sentence is easy to type but their story is more interesting than that. Alex is in the Air Cavalry somewhere in Afghanistan. He was here for two weeks, now he is heading back out doing his duty for our country. [...]
Erika and Arnold tied the knot this past Sunday at the Westin in the Domain. Lovely and intimate day with friends and family from all over the globe. The Westin staff, especially Mona Lisa, were wonderfully accommodating to the photographer who wanted to use their lobby for some pictures. The surprise of the day was [...]
Jeff, Cheri and I have met on the running trails of Texas, usually with them running really long distances, and me taking lots and lots of photographs. We got together recently for some engagement photos that show off one of their favorite spots to run, Walnut Creek Park, with their dog – Rocky. This crazy [...]
My friend Millie is attending the new Austin School for the Performing and Visual Arts. We met last year at our Mini’Lypse in March because she dances with an instructor that I have known since middle school. Anyhow, Millie and I have teamed up a couple of times before on some photo projects. I love [...]
I work for a great running company, Rogue Running, and they like to put on crazy events to break up the summer doldrums. Last week they put on the Rogue Double Dare Challenge. A timed obstacle course ending in a murky inflatable slip n slide. First up, Bobbing for Apples The Second Event is High [...]
I know Adam and Dacia through my work with Team Rogue Elite. Last week, I got to meet Adam’s parents and the newest addition to the family – Avaya. Thank you Adam and Dacia for sharing Avaya with us, she is a superstar! The video that follows was shot on a Canon 1d IV and [...]
It wasn’t Mr. Toads, but the last few days have been a journey for me, including the 768 miles I drove between Thursday and Sunday. The week started off with some new gear. I stepped up from battery powered strobes to an Alien Bee 800 with a 47 inch Octabox. For those who read this [...]
The last thing I posted was all about my workflow, lots of words, no pictures. Let us change that up a bit for you and give you pictures with not a lot of words. We have already covered some of Emily’s Bridal pictures, the 2 that I could show you. Now we get to meet [...]
