Time Magazine Shoot

I had a recent shoot for Time Magazine.  We were on the tarmac of the Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston and had assistance from a very professional group of people at the Houston Airport System.  These four architects with ITT are implementing a system that cuts down on carbon emissions from airplanes.

Launched new website!

Recently launched my new website.  It was redesigned by a very talented web designer, Drew at Gesture Studio.  The new site has lots of new work and a new food section.  One really nice thing is that I'll have the ability to update the content.

Food Test - Eggplant

I've been shooting more often for myself and portfolio lately.  It's a good habit to start.  And I'm taking an interest in food as my subject.  I picked up fresh veggies and fruit at a local farmer's market located about a mile from my studio and just played around.  

Wal-Mart Exterior

On location with Lopez Negrete for this one.  Wal-Mart's Hispanic/Latin supermarket in Houston is the first of it's kind.   Eric at Pentagraphics did a great job on retouching.

Maseca Outdoor Campaign

Worked with a great team over at Lopez Negrete to produce a series of outdoor ads for Azteca Foods.

Homeless Campaign

I've been working with Sherrie Oldham at S.O. Creative on a awareness campaign for an organization call Healthcare for the Homeless.  The name says it all,  this organization provides dental and medical care to people living on the streets.  I'm so inspired by the emotion that homeless people convey in these images that I plan to continue this work on a personal basis.

Food Shoot with Carla Buerkle

Had a nice shoot with a great food stylist last week.  Carla Buerkle is definitely one of the best food stylist's in town and agreed to work with me on producing a few food shots for my book and future promo materials.

MidSouth Bank Annual Report

I shot this image of a salon school owner for a Louisiana based bank last year.  I spent a week driving through Louisiana shooting business owners that were bank clients.  I totally enjoyed meeting these people and exploring LA back roads.  I've been working on retouching images for my new portfolio and came across this one.

Brazil Promo

The creative genius behind my Brazil promo is Jeffrey McKay over at Pennebaker.  He had the cool concept to create this 12 page collection of my Brazil images with email pages in between. The emails give insight to some of the shoots and people we met.  Additional credit goes to Beverly and Ray at Digital Imaging Group for the retouching and scanning.  Printer: Infovine.
