My Photos Will Make You Smarter!!!

Well, my photo might not literally make you smarter, but it will help illustrate some important political points in a newly-released textbook.  That’s right, I recently sold another image to a textbook company, and my image of Dallas mayor Mike Rawlings is now in the American Politics Today/3E Texas Edition authored by William Bianco and David Canon.

It has a print run of 40,000 copies, so plenty of Texas students studying politics will get a chance to see my work as they study.  So, not only are my photos interesting and engaging, but they also have the potential to make you smarter!  Yeah, it’s a stretch to suggest that I’m making anyone smarter… I know, but it’s still cool to know my pics are in the classroom.

Rock and Roll Royalty…

Located in North Texas, Denton is home to several accomplished musicians.  Some, like Brent Best, have toured across several continents, recorded stacks of albums, and even been written into a Stephen King novel – yup!  Google the band Slobberbone, and you’ll see the world famous novelist included them in Black House!
Luckily, I got the chance to photograph a few of these musical geniuses for the current cover story in the Dallas Observer.  It was a blast getting to hang out in Denton for the day, and I think the photos represent what the artists and town are all about.  

More Perot Museum…

I know that I just had a post about the current Perot Museum of Nature and Science advertisements, but they were just so much fun to shoot!  I get excited every time I see a new one in a magazine or on a billboard.  Over two or three days, I shot a ton of little kids, teens, adults, and senior citizens.  They all showed their awe towards the new museum, and I captured those expressions with my camera.  Doesn’t this little girl look like she’s full of wonder and intrigue, as she experiences all the excitement the new building has to offer?!?  

It really is a cool place to go, whether you’re a child or just a child at heart.  I can’t wait to see some of the future faces and expressions they use in this ad campaign.  I think it really captures what every guest feels as they take their first steps into the world-class attraction!
