Halloween Parade, Downtown Las Vegas, 2012

Halloween just about anywhere is pretty fun in my opinion. And of course, Las Vegas does it their own special way just like everything else about this town. These are a selection of images from the parade held on the special night of the 31st. Thanks for looking.

Blurred Out

I did a series like this in college, and I’ve been wanting to play around with completely blurring the image and doing something similar again.  This is a small sample of what is to come.

Marble Falls, Texas

This is where I drive to everyday an hour outside of Austin. It is the small town of Marble Falls. Population < 7,000.

Lookout Mountain

These are all images of Kingsland, Texas. It’s near where I work and I shot these the other day on my lunch break. I took these pictures during this last week of December, since the weather has been so mild and nice lately.

Happy New Year!

Bobby Bare Jr. in South Austin

Bobby Bare Jr. is on a house-party tour now traveling across the country. I was lucky enough to go to the show that he played in Austin, and in fact the show was just down from my house.

I have seen Bobby play before, but it was at a much bigger venue and many more people. That is the great thing about this type of show; it’s such an intimate experience for the listener and the interaction between artist and fan is he held in a dining room instead of a warehouse.

These are the best images that I shot, and I hope you like them too.

Cheers to Bobby Bare Jr.

Bob Log III plays the Mohawk, Austin, Texas

The Mohawk books great bands. Or, at least I think so. Last night was no different in that I got to see a show that I’ve been wanting to see for a long time, Bob Log III. It was a great show – tons of energy, packed with people and friends to share it with. I wish that I would have been just a little closer to the stage, but since I’m 6’4, I don’t like to block people behind me. So here are a few shots from Bob Log III playing the Mohawk.

This is actually one of the opening bands. Mr. Free and the Satellite Freakout.

This is Bob Log III starting the show by walking through the crowd. He’s saying hello to my friends Dave and Katie.

The man himself.

Here is a heavy-duty inflatable boat / raft that people were tossing around. I thought it might take down some of the overhead lighting. Security was not impressed.

Overall it was a great show and I can’t wait to get the chance to see him again.

Laura’s Shoot

Laura, my fiance’s good friend and my pal too, needed a few new head shots for her portfolio and asked me to photograph her this past weekend. We went out on Sunday morning and hit a few different locations and these turned out really nice. Plus, she was a good model to work with and her personality was easily captured.

2011 Marble Falls Drag Boat Races

Wow, do these boats move! And I mean fast! This is LakeFest at Marble Falls, Texas.

I’d never had the chance to shoot something like this before, and I wanted to take full advantage of this unique opportunity. I had press credentials from the paper I work for to get a closer view than the rest of the crowd and was able to get right on the edge of the water.

This is just like drag racing on an asphalt track (which I have never been to either), but instead is on an open body of water. This event marked the 20th year for the races to fall upon the city of Marble Falls in central Texas. The boats are put in separate classes and race each other accordingly with the “Top Fuel” class leading the excitement with speeds above 250 mph.

A world record was set while I was there shooting and I got a few nice shots of it happening. The boat “Problem Child” driven by Daryl Ehrlich set the record of going 1,000 feet in 3.39 seconds at a speed of 261mph. Damn.

Here are the images:

Not only does everyone have an interest in fast boats at this event, everyone drives a truck. This is Texas after all.

This is the boat and driver that beat the previous record to make the world record in Top Hydro Fuel category. Daryl Erlich driving “Problem Child.”

Hole in one

This is a shot from a shoot I did for the newspaper I work for. It was the cover of a weekend features tab we publish. I just like the picture.
