The most ridiculous magazine cover I’ve ever shot

I love this cover. As in, I absolutely L.O.V.E. this cover. However, it is possibly the most ridiculous thing I've ever shot professionally. I had a great time with Dana, Derek, & Eric from the Austin Apartment Association scouting for cool locations in the bars of Austin's ridiculo-hip Rainey street district which is nestled above Lady Bird Lake and next to I-35 at the South end of downtown. If you're not familiar with the area, Austin has transformed a bunch of semi-derelict bungalows into a collection of cool bars and food trailers sadly populated by a cabal of Pearl beer swilling...

Visual Abstraction of Blurred Time at Nebraska State Fair

These images are long exposure photographs taken at the Nebraska State Fair in 2005 in Lincoln, Nebraska.

Abandoned Warehouse & Railyard in Cameron, Texas

I spent a day with local filmmaker Don Howard documenting the town of Cameron, Texas for a project pitch he is working on. Cameron is situated at the junction of U.S. Highways 77 and 190, approximately 71 miles northeast of Austin in north central Milam County. I love the textures of the abandoned warehouse and railyard facility near the town's grain elevators. Apparently, the Texas and New Orleans Railroad discontinued its track from Cameron south to Giddings. Southern Pacific, which had taken over the Texas and New Orleans, abandoned its track from Cameron north to Rosebud.
