A few months ago I received a fun assignment from Delta Sky Mag. They wanted olive oil in water and I thought it was a great idea. I figured this would be easy, until I had to drop oil and shoot all by myself. It got a little messy and slippery in the studio but I got some pretty beautiful results.
I recently had the opportunity to shoot for World Wildlife Fund. It was a story on how to minimize food waste in your fridge. The concept was to have a glowing refrigerator. I was super excited and immediately started to think of how to get this done. With the help of Adam, we had figured just use one of our refrigerators, my apartment, the studio, anyone’s refrigerator. Of course most of the fridges were not clean or exactly what I wanted. We thought long and hard about this. Long story short and with the help of an appliance rental, got one delivered and picked up in a week and I got the shot I wanted. Here is the original image and the image in layout.
I started shooting for Southwest just about a year ago. Every month they feature a cocktail from a bar/restaurant. It is really fun and learn how to make some interesting cocktails. The great thing about shooting cocktails, my home bar have been growing rapidly. Here is a behind the scenes shot and a few drink shots I like.
SO……I try and test/shoot as much as possible. Some tests make it into my portfolio and some don’t. The idea of shooting light bulbs came to me a while back but never got to shoot them. Heading to Lowes for supplies, I got distracted and finally grabbed a few bulbs. Here are a some of the bulbs I shot.
This assignment I shot for Texas Monthly back in 2014. It was a story about a gentleman, Paul Moran, who collected John Updike’s trash. He brought in a large collection of items from clothes to canceled checks. It was a interesting story and fun shoot. You can still read about it on Texas Monthly.
A few months back I shot some Tabasco peppers for Delta.They sent me a rather large box of peppers and I got curious….How hot can these little peppers be?! Well Adam and Katie, along with myself, can assure you that they are HOT! But they turned out beautiful. Here is the image they ran along with a few other of my favorite options.
In 2011 Bastrop County complex had the most destructive wildfire in Texas history. I was lucky to meet some great people who were impacted by the fire. They were nice enough to let me photograph the only remains they were able to recover. They were also the best neighbors I have ever had.
