This is a composite from a couple of Senior photos I did for Olivia. Olivia is on a five year program at A&M to get her Masters Degree in Accounting. The first four years she was in the Corps of Cadets and her one and only wardrobe selection was her Corps uniform. Since you may only be in the Corps for four years she is back to wearing ‘regular’ clothes around campus while finishing up her Masters. I wonder if it was easier before she had to decide what shoes to wear?… You will have to agree it doesn’t matter; Senior boots or high heels, she is beautiful.
On a side note, after working on blending the two photographs it occurred to me that this composite feels a little strange to me because Olivia does indeed have a twin sister. I’m used to seeing the two of them together rather than just seeing Olivia times two.
Here is another of the three Covered Bridges I found in New Hampshire all less than an hour apart. Actually they were quite a bit closer together than that, because I actually photographed all three from various angles in less than three hours.
I had to get my shoes wet for this one. I loved the look of the rocks through the water and there was just no way to get the shot other than to just get a little wet. The good news is; I did not melt, my shoes are fine, and I really like the photo.
You can see the other Covered Bridge(s) here.
Tonight my wife & I are looking forward to another great evening of entertainment at the truly fabulous Long Center for the Performing Arts. I shot this view earlier in the year when I was photographing the ‘Stevie’ statue and the Austin Skyline across the street. You may view my other images of the Long Center here.
Not too long ago I was contracted by the Boot Ranch Golf community near Fredericksburg TX deep in the Texas Hill Country to update their photographs of their golf course and community. Wow! What a beautiful place. They actually ended up selecting about twice as many photos as they originally thought they would need because everything there is so amazingly photogenic. This is the view from the bridge as you enter the community. As I said before; Wow! What a beautiful place.
I recently did some additional photography for the Paramount Theatre in Austin Texas. I love this place! This is actually an HDR panorama to try and capture as much of the theatre a possible from the front center stage position. It was shot as multiple images with my 14mm lens and then stitched together. Normally, I would have been able to get the whole room with the 14-24 lens by just backing up a bit. However, the theatre had a large projection screen in place for a summer film series which forced me to the front of the stage. Creating the image this way caused a bit more of a ‘fisheye’ effect which I believe works well for this grand historical theatre.

These are aircraft that spent the night at ABIA airport in Austin Texas and are ready to start work as the sun is about to rise.
Although I am a full time photographer, I also work part time for an unnamed airline (guess…). Some days I am greeting customers in my white shirt and tie, and on many days I’m working the ramp in my ‘village people’ outfit and get to watch the sun rise while towing the aircraft to the gates so all those travelers can fly to where they want or need to be. I’ve always been like a kid around airplanes so while the work is sometimes hard, for me the hours are short and for the virtual donation of my time I can fly pretty much any where in the world for less than the cost of a good dinner out.
