OK, so photographer Peter Hurley talks like he made up the word, even though squinch has been in the dictionary for years. But, that doesn’t matter. What DOES matter is that he points out a fact that’s all too common among non-professional photo subjects… the deer in the headlights look! He has a simple way to help subjects cure this problem – the squinch!
Here is another feature story I shot for Cowboys & Indians magazine. I may be more known for photographing people, but I sometimes do a fun product shoot. This was a great one, getting to turn a bunch of Dallas’ finest southwestern jewelry into a Christmas wreath!
I had a lot of fun doing the photography for the Dallas issues of last year’s Chefwear catalog. It was a total blast! I recently ran into one of the chefs again, and it got me thinking about some of the cool photos I have that were either extras, alternate takes, or they didn’t make one of the three issues due to available space. I figured it would be fun to dig back through one of the shoot days and post a few images of some of Dallas’ finest chefs!
If you like these catalog lifestyle photos, you should check out more of my work at www.janikphoto.com and then give me a call to shoot your next campaign!
I got a chance to work with a great British news syndication service to shoot this video feature on Ron Wade, a man in Longview, TX who built an exact replica of the president’s oval office in his house. Well, almost exact… he said it is slightly smaller in diameter, due to his local zoning laws. This story sure was fun to shoot! I love being a videographer and photographer in Texas, because there’s an endless amount of stories to document in this huge state!
You can see more of my photos and videos shot in Dallas, Austin, and all around the lone star state, by visiting www.janikphoto.com, or by digging through my blog archive.
If you pick up the current issue of Cowboys & Indians magazine, you’ll see a feature story I photographed, called Holiday Cheers. It has been great working with such a great publication, and I’m excited for the next issue to hit stands, as well. I should have some more great photos in that one, too!

That’s right! If you caught the last couple issues of the Dallas Observer, you probably recognized the cover photo credits. I was selected to shoot the DOMA 25th anniversary nominees issue, and again for the winners issue! It was fun getting to shoot these wonderful leaders in the north Texas music industry. The scene has come a long way since I started going to shows back in the early 1990’s.
If you want to see the full issues, the Observer keeps a download archive in their e-edition section, located at www.dallasobserver.com, as there are plenty more of my pictures in these two issues. This is just a taste!
