Arthur Yoria portrait sessions

For the past couple of years, I’ve had the pleasure of working with the artists of Houston-based Splice Records. Recently, I collaborated with singer/songwriter Arthur Yoria, creating portraits for his upcoming album. In addition to shooting in the portrait studio, we had the good fortune to shoot in historic Studio A at SugarHill Recording Studios. A huge thank you to Dan Workman for […]


Janelle Monáe at Day for Night Music and Art Festival

All the recent buzz surrounding this year’s Day for Night music and art festival has me nostalgic for last year’s show. I revisited the photos of one of my favorite acts of that festival: Janelle Monáe . That weekend I discovered the secret to photographing Miss Monáe: attend a concert where she is performing, point your camera in her direction, and press […]


Diving with the great white sharks of Isla Guadalupe, Mexico

For the past several years, my buddy Ryan and I have been checking the Big Five sharks from our diving to-do list.

With a quick trek to Isla Guadalupe, we checked the final one from our list: the great white. We dove […]

Three days in Santa Fe

I spent a long weekend in Santa Fe with friends for the annual Fiestas de Santa Fe. The weekend was filled with adventures eating, drinking, visiting galleries, and attending the burning of Old Man Gloom at Zozobra. We even had time to visit Bandelier National Monument for a day of hiking. I was fortunate enough to contribute photos for […]


St. Vincent at Free Press Summer Festival

I had the pleasure of photographing St. Vincent for the Houston Chronicle during Free Press Summer Festival this year. You can read Craig‘s coverage HERE and Joey‘s coverage HERE. I hope the photos speak for themselves. I found her to be one of the most photogenic artists who I have shot it a very long time. The camera absolutely adores her.


“From In-store to Arena Floor”

Many thanks to the Record Ranch Gallery at Cactus Music for hosting forty of my concert photographs on its walls. It’s hard to believe that six weeks have already come and gone. Here is the preview from the Houston Chronicle: “Photo exhibit displays the big and small of Houston music scene.” And here’s an excerpt from the press release: […]
