Double Exposures with Seth and Pete II

Here is the second installment of our “People and Places” project. This time Seth was on places duty while I made pictures of people. I hope you enjoy them as much as we enjoy putting the whole thing together.

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.

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.

Spending a Saturday at Port Aransas, Texas

I just got back from a little road trip to Port Aransas for the day and to spend the night. It was really nice spending the time with my fiance’ and getting to photograph and swim in the gulf. I’ve never seen blue water in the Gulf of Mexico quite like this. Schools of minnow’s swam around our feet, and a few small sand sharks and trout made their way around us. Some fish jumped out of the waves, and we had fun watching the action. We even saw a few jellyfish.

After swimming for a while we took a walk up to a large fishing pier and watched the people fishing and hanging out.

All in all, it was an awesome trip and I can’t wait to go back.

Cheers!

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.”

Austin Time Lapse

I love time lapse photography and this is a little project I did using Austin as my subject.

We’re on the move

Transportation and logistics have always intrigued me. This is a sampling of some of the unique autos and ways to get around that I’ve found in the past nine months since moving to Austin.

Halloweiners

This past weekend was pretty swell. It included serving enchilada’s while wearing a fake mustache at work, and being able to photograph the madness of downtown Austin, Texas during Halloween – which I soon found out is one of the most beloved holidays in the capital city.

My camera that I normally shoot with is in the shop for repair, so I’ve been shooting with my first DSLR. This baby still rocks it, just on a much slower pace. I actually kind of enjoyed shooting with it as it made me less reliant on the computer part of the camera and made me get back to focusing on making the best images that I could. I’ve always been under the school of thought that it isn’t what camera you have, but rather what you can do with what you’ve got.

So here are some of my favorite images from the night that people let it all hang out. Literally.

Everybody is gettin’ hitched…

I’ve wanted to put some of my wedding photography up here for some time now, and finally I’ve gotten to it. These are some shots from some weddings that I’ve shot from this summer and last. Every party is different, and I have to say that each one that I shoot I learn something new and can put to use a new technique or solution to a problem. This is the point I think, and I never want to stop feeling that there is always something to gain from new experiences.

So take a look!

Cheers!
