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!!

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....

BHE – Special Friend’s Day 2017!

Special Friend's Day

YES!  This is where you can get you digital image from the event.  It was a lot of fun, I was caught off guard at the very beginning, lol.  But, the day smoothed out & I was able to set up some of the equipment as the morning went along.

Some of the kids I drove on the Bus last year, so it was a lot of fun seeing some old friends!

The webpage is up & you do need the password to view the photos!  The password should work as long as Google is alive & kicking, but I will take down the webpage eventually (30 days or so).

Thanks again BHE for having me, have a great year!

Head Shots for your Social Media Platforms!

Photography, good photography, always, ALWAYS attracts more attention to whatever it is you are trying to market online, offline, mail, bilboards, whatever!!  Including yourself.  Head shots & portraits are a lot of fun & they should be confidence building.  I do my best to make sure you look your best.  At the moment, I don't have a full team that travels with me, doing makeup & setting up lights, bla bla.   Someday, hopefully?  Not even sure on that.  You can get some amazing shots, very easily & comfortably in your busy schedule.  I can come to you, we can stay at your home or business, go out on the town, what ever time & money allow us to do.  

I always retouch any photo that I take, in Adobe Photoshop.  I can do big changes to your face, but I probably won't do much more than smoothing & blending.  If you want a face-lift, I may not be your guy.  I think everyone is beautiful, the way you are.  I just don't think, on a personal level, that heavy alterations will ever be something I am ever interested in.  

I think, the going rate for some fancy head shots are about $1600.  You'll probably get one or two photos out of that.  I'm sure they will have some amazing lighting set-ups that I don't or some other very impressive photography equipment, that I don't.  If that is what you want & can afford, I wish you all the best, I'm sure your photos will be amazing.  Or, you can reach out to me & get a hell of a deal!

Right now, rates start at $250 per hour session.

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.

Electric Peak, MT | elev. 10,968ft

This is the view that I grew up with. Then, it was Long’s Peak (Twin Peaks) as I grew older. Been so spoiled with magnificent views my whole childhood. It really effected me. Possibly, the leading determining factor in why I am who I am. That is saying a lot, you know, God & all. But, the landscape is God, so… Just seeing sunrise/sunset/storms/clear skies/night skies/snow capped/dry…… what a beautiful thing to behold everyday of a young life. I love the mountains.

Grand Prismatic Spring | Oil Painting

Not sure how these are viewing on your screen, all digital devices are different, or can be. I am going to print these this afternoon to check them out. I made them with canvas style prints in mind, hopefully paper looks good too. Stay tuned! Enjoying messing around with the effects on photoshop. These are not just simply applying the setting & walking away. I used multiple layers, varying the brush settings, blending them together & altering colors, etc.

The View in My First Oil Paint from Big Sky Ski Resort….

Panorama of 4 photos 1×3 format. Oil Painted in Photoshop. I haven’t had a computer that was fast enough to do any effects, so this is my first oil painting in photoshop… I didn’t just oil paint the whole thing the same & call it good, there are many layers & variations to the entire composition. Which is a lot of fun & time for me. I think it makes it pop a little more!! Want a copy? Cheapish, i’ll even do canvas for you!

Lower Falls of the Grand Canyon in Yellowstone Park

One of the many iconic photo locations in Yellowstone, the South Rim Drive of the Canyon.  Definitely, one of the spots I remember most from my early visits to the park.  The canyon is stunning, it is just a reminder of the many "looks" the park has in such a relatively small area of land.  The falls have a lookout directly above the crest of the falls.  You can see some people standing there in this photo.  It is quite the impressive site, in that particular location as well.  I did take some video, but that vantage point, I don't know if pictures really capture the power of the falls.  The river is so heavy & it is channeled even narrower at the drop.  I have never been to Niagara, so I wonder how it compares.  

I took a few different shots from various locations here.  This isn't particularly my favorite that I took, but I wanted to see the detail I got at full zoom (120mm).  I am looking forward to having my souped up computer that will be able to eat HDR's for lunch!!  Till then I am stuck on my tricycle (laptop) pedaling as fast as I can....
