Featured Image – Brushing Chisos

I have been very remiss in keeping this page up to date so I will be playing some catch up in the coming weeks (I hope). This image was taken on a photo expedition mounted with my friend and fellow shooter of almost 30 years, Alex Suarez. Every year or so we attempt an expedition [...]


One of the things I really like about the fisheye (10.5 mm) and the ultrawide (12-24mm) lenses I have are what they do to clouds. They transform interesting clouds into really interesting clouds. In the case of the fisheye they introduce otherworldly curvatures that are reminiscent of alien worlds. In the case of the 12-24 [...]

Regensburg Danube Waterfront

Travel photography is always a tricky artform. You are working against time (you never seem to be anywhere long enough) and the fact that photographers who actually live in the area you are photographing start off with a huge advantage. They can study the light, see how it evolves through the seasons and throughout the [...]

Pennybacker Curves

I was up in Austin recently to speak at a photography group. While there I decided to climb the cliff above the Pennybacker Bridge over Lake Austin. This is a popular spot for photography but I hadn’t shot up there in a long time and I wanted to play with a new lens I borrowed [...]

Right Brain vs. Left Brain

I’ll be speaking at the CapMac Advanced Photography forum this Thursday night (10/28/10) on the intersection of photography and technology. Details are here. The presentation is here. If you’re in the Austin area and are interested, come on by. It’s free and worth every penny.

Heritage Clouds

This is one of those shots where patience paid off. I was watching the clouds proceed across the Heritage Plaza in downtown Houston and this alignment presented itself. I think it has sort of a Magritte feel to it where you don’t really know what’s real and what’s reflection. I also finally found a parking [...]

Chisos Fisheye

This is an image from my latest trip to Big Bend National Park with my friend, Alex Suarez. We decided to do a photographers trek without kids so that we could shoot with minimal distractions. As usual, we had great weather, it being Spring Break. The Lost Mine Trail was a 1200 ft. climb but [...]

Dome Vortex

I was recently in Austin and did some night shooting with my good friends Brian and Alex. Brian, Alex, and I have been shooting together since the early 1980s when we all attended Houston’s High School for the Performing and Visual Arts together.
We decided to do some night photography and I wanted to go to [...]
