The Joys of My Job

I had a shoot at the restaurant, The Mansion yesterday.  I was photographing some pastries and the chef.  One of which is a possible cover shot.  It was a lot of fun, I'm real happy with how things worked out.  I'll post the images once they are published in July.  For now though here are a couple behind the scenes shots that I thought were cool.  On the left was my photo assistant, Evett, in this sweet room we found (we had some down time).  On the right, is the ridiculous dessert, after we got our shot.  Ah man, it was so good!!!

The Jazz Vocalist

I had a great opportunity to photograph Damon K. Clark for an editorial story.  He is an amazing Jazz vocalist in Dallas.  The magazine actually ran both scenarios I shot, in two different issues.  Damon was such a great sport and easy going that I asked if I could shoot some video of him for a personal project.  He agreed, so we set up a date and shot it.  We shot him in downtown Dallas and on a made up stage at my studio.  We worked until 2am.  It was so much fun, and am very pleased with what we got.  I've been really getting into shooting these short (1-3 minute) "video portraits".

Pretty Flowers

I worked with Banowetz and Company on shooting all of the new landscaping, inside and outside of North Park.  I'm always so impressed with the crazy, unique plants and the sweet designs they use when I'm shopping there.  They are far from normal and boring, like most shopping centers.  So creative and refreshing.  It was a great shoot.  Always love working with those guys.

Grange Hall

I had the opportunity to photograph Rajan Patel of Grange Hall.  Man was he cool.  I wish I were half that cool and stylish.  He was a very kind and hospitable man.  Afterwards he gave my assistant and I a container of these amazing chocolate balls.  I was told they were like $40 for this small box.  It was a little weird thinking that every marble sized chocolate ball I ate, was like eating $2 a bite.  It was a nice treat, not one I would have paid for, but sure did appreciate and savor it.
