New Life Here In Abilene, TX!

Abilene has some very talented photographers! I have seen some amazing pictures & websites.  I thought the photos of the house I bought were pretty nice.  It makes a difference! There is a lot of listings here in Abilene for real estate. I am eager to throw my hat in, there seems to be plenty of room. I also, am very eager to work with some of the local interior design talent, custom home builders, custom cabinet builders, flooring, home gardening, etc!

I am really anxious to get some new projects started, with some of my new equipment & techniques I have been polishing. I have been super busy with life issues, I'm looking forward to being able to focus on work again!!

Connected Velocity Baseball Camp w/ Brent Strom & Dennis Rogers! | San Antonio, TX

What a great Saturday spent in San Antonio, my first official business in SA. Brent Strom from the Houston Astros, excuse me, World Series Champion Houston Astros. He is their Pitching Coach, so listening to some of the gamesmanship inside stories had everyone's full attention. These kids had so much one on one time with him & the other coaches, they were very lucky to know Ryan Murphy (event organizer) & catch this camp in it's infant stages. There's no way it isn't going to be huge, moving forward. So, thanks Tony Chavez of GK Boxing for the invite, looking forward to the next camp!

Luxe Interiors+Design | Salvador Dali – The Argillet Collection

These are some of the photos from Off the Wall Gallery, in Houston.  They were hosting a private collection of Salvador Dali artwork.  Christine Argillet has know him since a young age & i believe her father was the publisher for either all or a significant portion of Dali’s artwork.  I was personally very excited to see the display, Salvador Dali’s artwork I have always been intrigued by.  It is unique to say the least.  Here are some of the people in attendance that evening & some of the artwork mixed in with work by other artists (statues, etc...)

Tynewood Showcase & Luxe Interior+Design

Another great event that I was invited to take pics for.  I get all of the structural shots, usually in a 30 - 60 minute window, so they aren't optimal shots all the time.  But, I love doing them & occasionally they will make their way into the magazine.  Mostly, I am there for the party & pictures of the guests.  I enjoy doing both & I am very happy for every opportunity (Carol Lamadrid @ Luxe Interior+Design)!

Dominique Griffin’s Pro-Debut @ Gas Monkey | Dallas, TX

It's gonna be like the 12 days of Christmas for this fight, lol. I have enough pictures for each day leading up to the fight December 1st. Gonna be funny. Haven't done a marketing campaign like this before. It wasn't planned, I just had so many good photos from the photo session, I wanted to show them all. So, I will have to be a little creative, so they don't all look the same. Looking forward to it....

Commercial Photography

Not really stepping into a new world, here.  I have always enjoyed architectural photography.  I enjoy working with the photos in Photoshop.  Based out of the Houston area, real estate properties & designer projects are my interests.  As well as product photography.  I guess I should say, all aspects of business, photography.  Commercial Photography.

LUXE Interior + Design | Cupic Custom Homes, Elizabeth Garrett Interiors & more…

Last Thursday night, I was in Bunker Hill, TX, for LUXE, at a showhome by Cupic Custom Homes with interior designs by Elizabeth Garrett Interiors.  There were many other businesses that contributed to an amazing evening.  Well, for me at least, it was a  stunning home.  Seemed like everyone had a great time!  The home was staged with some great furniture Custom Creations Furniture & amazing artwork provided by Laura Rathe Fine Art Studio.  Obviously, this isn’t the level of home I am accustomed to, lol, but this house was amazing….  it was so spacious & with great windows?  When can I move in?!

Here are some of the other contributors;

McCaw Cabinetry
Audi of Central Houston
Segreto Finishes

City Kitchen Catering
Below is what, I, love to do; make online & hard marketing material for your business.  All these shots were from the event.  Obviously, there is a slight to significant difference between event portraits & portrait session photos.  The same with the interior/exterior photos, but hey, that is what I do.  Be as versatile as possible & maximize all opportunities!

Ladies of the Y 2016 | What a Success!

This is my 3rd year covering this event. First off, I have to thank Dawn Dunn of the Ymca for believing in me & giving me the opportunity in the first place! Back to the event, Trotter YMCA has held this event @ The Junior League of Houston every fall for the past 4 years. The setting is absolutely beautiful. This is certainly a fundraising event & is very successful in that regard. But, the honoree is the great story. The guest speakers, are the great story. These woman have a lifetime of contribution to their community, the stories they have left behind & are told at the event, are tear-jerking.

This year’s honoree is Gretchen Berly. She is directly responsible for over $500,000.00 of money raised for various charities. The number of children, mothers, fathers, families touched by her kindness are unknown. But, simply ask anyone who knows her & I’m sure they will fill you in very quickly about a life or lives, they know, she has positively effected.

I am still working on this project & this is simply a post, not a page on my website. So, I’m sure in the near future I will have a full page dedicated to the 2016 Ladies of the Y.

Joe George Jr. | Boxing & Promotion

So I love making posters.  The great thing about my enjoyment of producing collage posters is being able to cross them into marketing ideas!  

Once again, a lot of what I do is based on photography.  But, I truly am passionate about marketing & business strategy.  My dream for the work I have done is to work directly on a long term basis for 1-5 clients.  Making their business, themselves, their product, look absolutely amazing.  Everyday!  Producing social media daily, like an online magazine focused solely on “you.”  It would be incredible to see it all together after only a few months.  The online presence would be unlike any one else that is not a major corporation.
