I wish I could just pull in and unload at all my locations.
After the shoot, I did donuts in the hanger before I left. Haha, not really, just joking @millionairdallas

Preparing for our first shot this morning out at @millionairdallas. Always great working with them and @agencycreative !!!

Morning coffee

My little buddy killed it this morning with her dance class!

It’s not the Sierras, but hiking Cedar Ridge Preserve and hanging with @kylesteed isn’t half bad.

Really pumped with how my new book came out! Let me know what you think. Thanks so much to @wonderfulmachine for the editing and printing and to @hartnackandco for the beautifully created book and box! Now to get it out there and start showing it.

Two amazing things about shooting for @kateweiserchocolate , Kate Weiser and her chocolates! Definitely one of my favorite clients to shoot for! Kate is always super cool and nice and she always leaves us plenty of her ridiculous chocolates to munch on afterwards!

When a ladder isn't near by...
Out shooting for @forbes magazine in east Texas recently.

My boy @kylesteed killin it as usual with his most recent kick ass mural! He said he was inspired by the designs you see in farm country when viewing them from planes. I love it! Those color tones are so perfect together. #dallas #mural #artist

Does anyone else struggle with social media? What to post, how often, is it cool enough, am I being arrogant, am I trying too hard, am I not trying hard enough, why do I care how many likes or "friends" I have.
Man, it's a struggle sometimes. I needed to take a break for a while, which is why I haven't posted anything for a month. I needed to refocus, to reset my perspective. Social media isn't all bad, but it is a slippery slope, and I have to watch myself, and what it does to my mindset.
As a professional photographer, I see the need for it. It's good for clients to see your busy and you are working on cool projects. It gives them the confidence to use you. It's good to keep family and friends up on what I'm doing, if they are interested. It's good connecting with like minded artists. The struggle is seeing others great work and lifestyle they portray and becoming jealous. Or letting it suck way too much time away, when you could be playing with your daughter or helping your wife. Or just flat out being distracted with stupid stuff people post.
Anyways, I'm back on for the moment, until it becomes too much again. I hope to bring good honest imagery without caring too much about what people think. I also will be posting "behind the scenes" photos from shoots and such. In no way do I do this to show how cool I am (cause I'm not that cool), but to share with other photographers what's going on and how I do things, possibly helping others. (I love seeing that from other photographers pages.) Always feel free to ask questions about shoots. Here's to being real and authentic, it's a continual struggle.

I graduated from UNT with my BFA in photography 14 years ago. The reason I am where I am in my career, enjoying what I do and making a living at it, is because of this amazing woman. Dornith Doherty was my professor and head of the photo program at that time. She encouraged this shy, unsure of himself kid to keep working at it and continually challenging me. She made me believe that I was talented and could actually do something in photography and make a career at it. She lined up internships for me and has kept in touch with me ever since. Now she sends me interns (the brightest in her class). Dornith has a show up at Amon Carter Museum until December (I believe), the reception being tonight. It is a gorgeous show, that I encourage you all to go see. Thanks for everything Dornith!
