Austin Free Week 2020

Nothing is better than starting the year off listening to your friends play live music at your favorite music venues in town. Here are a few captures from two nights out at at Mohawk on 1/2/2020 and Barracuda on 1/4/2020! All captured with an 85/1.8 lens!

Troublemaker’s Big Trouble IV, 2019

When you have a group of friends that love to throw epic bike parties, you have to document the magic that happens at least once. It’s really hard to explain what is going on, but I’m pretty sure after looking through all this chaos, you will get the idea. Please email me at for high-res images or for me to remove your image.

Oh, and for you camera nerds, all effects in the photos below are done with my off camera flash, so I shot everything you see…there was no photoshop here friends ❤

The SCM Flocking 2019

A friend of sorts mentioned to me casually online that flocking was still a thing, and without hesitation, I knew I had to be a part of my first adult flocking. If you don’t know anything about what flocking is, hopefully the photos below give you an idea. We traveled to College Station, TX and I don’t even think those Aggies knew what hit them! See below for pictorial evidence.

SXSW 2017 Recap

Had another great year as part of the official SXSW Wireimage team! Here are a few images that didn’t make the cut that also appear at!


Fall 2016 Holiday Mini Sessions

I finally have the chance to do fall mini sessions this year. I get really giddy to work with families, kids and even the occasional pet! Mini sessions are perfect for holiday cards, gifts and even just the “I want to get new photos done!” occasion. My sessions are on-location anywhere in Austin, Texas and last one hour. Usually this is plenty of time to fit in between 2-3 unique poses in one location. Within 24 hours, I send you a password-protected link to your unedited images, at which you can view and then pick your five favorites for me to edit and return back to you within 72 hours!

My fall mini session fee is $150 and this wonderful offer is valid through DECEMBER 19th 2016.

Feel free to email me at and happy holidays!


Alleykats 2016

A little known fact about me is that I used to race bikes. A lot. Road bikes, triathlons, street fixed gear races known as “alleykats…” Alleykats are the illegal-ish street races that occur all over the World. There is definitely a danger factor but moreso, they are just plain fun! Here are a few photos from the last alleykat here in Austin!

Dinner Lab 2016

I have known the great chefs and Front of House staff with Dinner Lab for several years now; In fact, I will usually cook with the team a few times of year. (Yes, it’s a little known fact that I have several years experience of cooking in professional kitchens!) We always have a great time making amazing dinners for people throughout Austin in random locations such as engine shops, music venues and even rooftops!

Traveling Chef Markus Carter asked me recently to join the team, yet again, but as an event photographer. It was a pretty incredible experience to take photos of my fellow cooks in an intimate Eastside setting. In this case, we arrived at a performance hall! Check out the photos for my views of a great night and amazing food by Chef Stephen from the upcoming Boiler 9, coming to the Seaholm Development early in 2016!

People For Bikes 2015

I had an opportunity through my cycling colleague and old friend, Christopher Stanton, to take some photos of an amazing senior-focused cycling program that is taking place on the Eastside of Austin. The program consists of partnering seniors with an adult-trike and giving each rider all the tools they need to succeed as an independent bike-riding member of the community.  The look of joy on their faces is something I will never forget-some of the cyclists had never ridden a bike in their life!

I hope other communities throughout the United States and beyond will adopt programs such as this one-it’s great to make a difference if even for a small group of individuals. It’s even more inspiring when we empower members of our communities that otherwise wouldn’t be able to be active voices in our neighborhoods!
