I was invited back officially as a ACRD photographer! Which really what that means is that I’m actually just welcome to come and shoot any time rather than asking/being asked. ^.^ Which is great!
Glory agreed to a shoot with me to test out my new Canon EOS R5! It’s hard to take bad photos of her, she’s just professional through and through, and well, a legitimate honest-to-goodness professional model.
Zoe is getting her masters, and we wanted to do a graduation photoshoot at UTD!
Glory was available to shoot at The Fabrication Yard and I wasn’t going to pass up on the chance!
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, […]
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 […]
Spent the night in Studio Lighting preparing for finals. Anaïs was kind enough to model for us and did an absolutely amazing job!
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.
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!
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
Aztlan Arts Tattoo hosted a fire show last night! I’ve never been to one and it was pretty amazing to watch! I was grateful for having done some limited time lapse night time light painting at Richland College because I just wanted to go to this for funsies but I feel like I took some […]
This is the third or fourth scrimmage I’ve been to, and I have to admit I find it difficult not watching the action and taking photographs, but I honestly feel that roller derby photography has made me a better photographer! Helps that this is an amazing sport full of amazing people! Visit their official: Website, […]
One of the assignments I had for my class was reflections, my wife was amazing enough to help me on her birthday for this!
Jayne Ochoa invited me to photograph a roller derby practice session with the Dallas Derby Devils, and I have to say it’s amazing, I found my limitations real quick shooting indoors and with my cropped sensor equipment, and lenses. Oh man though, watching them glide across the floor like sharks and then burst through a […]
Had a assignment for darkness and light, went for an esoteric meaning of the perceived darkness of Santa Muerte, which the lady working Chango Botanica was more than happy to talk about and let me meander about and photograph things, super nice atmosphere, and I’ve been back multiple times since! There’s a good article about […]
As with most things in Texas, just about any time I’d get a college assignment for something (anything? Everything!) outside it rained for an entire week, but the day before the project was due I caught a break, and ran right down the block to take some photos, and was lucky enough to meet Izze, […]
