Assassination City Roller Derby

My second time shooting with ACRD, and I have to give big huge thanks to Wicked for inviting me and reminding me that I’m more than welcome! There are some amazing photographers here too, I seem to roll in right as things are starting and they’re all set up with c-stands and remote flash units, …

Assassination City Roller Derby – May the 4th (be with you)

Feels super awkward shooting a new league, the handful of times I’ve shot Dallas Derby Devils it was closed practices and this feels official, well… because it’s actual “We’re selling tickets!” games. I met Wicked through Jayne (Hexa Dessie Maul) Ochoa who skated for ACRD and then for DDD, and I met Jayne in Photography …

Studio Assignment – Carla Ferrell

I’m always intimidated by using the studio by myself because I always have so many questions. But then I find setting up the Dynalite and strobes by myself feels easier than when I have help. Carla is in my Studio Lighting class here at Richland College and was kind enough to sit for portraits!

We have a Rembrandt Lighting assignment coming up and Louis brought her to help all of us out! She did an absolutely amazing job putting up with an entire classroom full of Studio Lighting students that don’t know what in the actual fuck we’re doing.

Richland College Studio Lighting Class

Spent the night up at the college working with strobes, beauty lights, the soft box, and working the Dynalite Power Pack and the Sekonic light meter. It’s a lot to go through, but we have a lot of good people in our Studio Lighting class and a really awesome professor!

Assignment – Correlation of Form

One of the few assignments that I thoroughly loved the concept of, finding two objects that were either similar or conveyed the same message.

St. Patricks Day Parade

We got extra credit for shooting this, honestly I feel like most of the shots were super, super annoyingly pedestrian except for the very last one. Spending a good three hours walking around my old neighborhood (we used to live a block away from Half Priced Books, where this all started) taking photos of drunken …

White Rock Lake Dog Park

Just a day in the life! As hard as my wife is working on her masters, about the only thing that is as close to zen for her as humanly possible is time with her (and strangers’) puppers!

College Assignment – Sensuality

Sometimes for assignments I go through the thrift shops here in Dallas to see if anything “fits” or “clicks” with what I need, a perfect synchronicity is getting this assignment for sensuality then finding a perfume bottle in the shape of a woman’s body that has iridescent flowers inside. The piece isn’t really about bodies …

Richland College – Studio Lighting

Second time actually able to dink around in the studio by myself, was working on some of the principles that Gary McCoy was teaching us about light modifiers. There are things I’d change that I didn’t even see or visualize until I was at home during post, but for a single-light setup and one of …
