DJ Rave Festival Pics…

I recently photographed a big DJ festival for the paper and wound up with way more fun photos than they’d ever have room to print, so I thought I’d share some of the extras with you!

Industrial Photography…

Recently, I’ve received several shoots from industrial and manufacturing clients. I think this is a good sign for the economy, since they wouldn’t be spending money on photography, if they weren’t selling anything.
I’ve found that my job is at the front of the economic wave. As the economy constricts, companies cut back or cancel their photography and advertising budgets. As the economy starts to pick up, companies allocate money to freshen up their image database.
Here’s a sample of a recent photo shoot I did for an extrusion company. They make all sorts of metal items… stuff that needs aluminum heatsinks or other special shapes. It was pretty neat getting to document the assembly process.

Food Trucks Invade Dallas!!!

Dallas photographers and Dallas food lovers now have one more thing to make life fun… gourmet food trucks! Besides having tons of tasty treats for sale, these rolling restaurants are also a blast to photograph. I highly suggest you pick up a copy of today’s Dallas Morning News and check out my cover photo on the Guide. The story is definitely worth reading and I’ve got plenty more photos to see in print. Go buy a newspaper now!

A Baker’s Dozen of Concert Photos…

I have been shooting a lot of performances lately, so I figured I’d offer up a baker’s dozen of recent concert shots. I still have a ton more shows, so I may continue this post with a second and third installment in the coming days…

Glee Photo Controversy…

Apparently (as you can see by his image above), photographer Tyler Shields‘ most recent domestic violence fashion shoot with a popular Glee actress is just one of many controversial shoots popping up. Is getting beat up supposed to be the new black in fashion?!?

This would actually make sense, as everything goes in cycles. Back in the mid-1990’s, fashion photography hit a sort of heroin chic fad, with rough, strung-out models being the hot thing. Kate Moss was known as the poster girl for the movement as photogs like Vincent Gallo and Nan Goldin ushered in the style.

Hot In The City With Shea…

It’s been super hot in Dallas this summer, but I braved the burning sun to do a photo shoot with FC DallasBrek Shea for the final issue of Quick. We were practically melting as I shot him outside of his North Dallas home, but I think it was worth it. Below, you will see the story and pics that ran in the paper.

Goodbye, Quick…

The last issue of Quick has hit stands and faded away. A few weeks ago, someone high up on the food chain decided to end Quick’s run… stop it… end it… kill it… no more issues. ever. Yup, the cover photo above was my last cover shoot with the publication. It was a fitting farewell. I’ve had a lot of disgruntled readers complain to me about the decision, but there’s not much I can do. I’m sure they’ll eventually find something new to read.
I have since found a couple new projects to fill the void, including shooting some covers for the Friday Guide. I’ll share those as they hit the stands. I’ve also started shooting some models for a pretty major client. I’ll share more on that soon, but for now let me say that I think catalog work is a great new avenue that I should’ve been pursuing a long time ago.
Anyway… bye everyone at Quick. You were a blast to work with. I’ll miss you!
