My New Model

I've got a few new projects in the works that I'll be able to show here eventually, but recently it's my new little model that's been keeping me busy. Sofia is 8 weeks old now, and really starting to get into this whole modeling thing. What she lacks in experience, she makes up for in cuteness. I think she has a long career ahead of her, don't you?

Sofia Rose DeSilva Has Arrived!

And a whopping 9 days early! Some shoots had to be rescheduled, so thanks to all of you for understanding. Mom and baby girl are now home and doing great. She weighed in at 6lbs, 12oz and was about 19" long. I hope she likes the camera because her modeling career has already begun!

Yellow!

This week's shoot was full of yellow! Cranes and specific crane equipment before it left the factory for it's final destination. Did I mention there was lots of yellow?

Brené Brown at Houston PBS

This past week I had the pleasure of shooting Brené Brown during her PBS taping here in Houston. I had the chance to shoot her and all the other amazing speakers at TEDx Houston several months ago, but it was great to hear her speak this time in a much more intimate setting, and she was allowed much more time to get her message of "The Gifts of Imperfection" across to her captivated audience. I would highly recommend checking out her website and videos.

Steel Pipe. Lots of it.

Last week my services were called upon to shoot the Howco Group facility just outside of Houston. They process and distribute specialty steels, and I got to spend the better part of the day wandering around behind the scenes, recording everyday processes, activities, materials and equipment for their new marketing materials.

Studio Session with Jimmy

I was recently approached by a musician/fine artist friend of mine. He wanted to paint a self portrait of himself so he asked me if I wouldn't mind taking a couple of shots of him with his guitar. So we went into the studio for a couple hours and had some fun! Most of these were a 3 light setup using Alien Bees strobes and various modifiers, and they were all shot against white seamless paper which can be made any shade of gray depending in how close you are to it. I shot with both the Leica M9 and the Nikon D700 during this session.
