Sorry for the absence...

I know I haven't posted an update in forever, but there are two reasons... One, I have been totally slammed with photo shoots. That's a good thing, because it means a ton of money has been coming in to make up for such a lackluster January and average February. Two, I need to move from Blogger to Wordpress, since Blogger is discontinuing their FTP service. I don't want to do a bunch of posts that potentially could get lost in the move.

I'll be posting a bunch of stuff soon, but for at least another week, I might be pretty quiet here. Sorry.

Taylor Swift's lovely locks...


When I was shooting the Taylor Swift concert last night here in Dallas, I noticed something... As Taylor swung and danced and shook, she had a few stray hairs fly off her head and down to the stage floor. One slowly floated down into a girl's hand at the edge of the stage. She held her hand out and watched it slowly land, like she was waiting for a snowflake to fall on a calm winter day.

I'm not sure if she kept the solitary hair and took it home, but I'm betting that single strand would fetch a nice reward on ebay! Not that I'm changing career paths to start capturing and selling celebrity hair... just saying, I'd rather sell it than keep it! I'm not much of an autograph guy, either - though I'd keep her autograph before I'd keep any of Taylor Swift's body parts!

Really, Rolling Stone? Really?!?

Am I the only one who thinks this, or is this one of the worst Rolling Stone covers in a long time? Nothing against Shaun White. I don't think it was his fault. The photographer, Terry Richardson, seems to have grabbed a cheap point and shoot, closed his eyes and pushed the shutter button. I feel bad, because he mentions it's his favorite cover work to date. If that's the case, I'd hate to see his worst!

Ebby rocks...

Between my corporate clients and the newspapers and magazines that I shoot for, I've had to photograph a lot of interesting people. However, very few hold a candle to Ebby Halliday.

I had to photograph Ebby during an event. She was the guest speaker, and boy can she speak! The stories she told were so humorous and captivating. And for a woman who is nearly 100 years old, she sure had a quick wit. I hope I can be that sharp at her age! Heck, I just hope I come close to living that long...

Canon TS-E 90mm...

Who would've thought you can do so much with the Canon TS-E 90mm lens? I've been wanting the 24mm for a long time, but haven't yet bit the bullet on it. After seeing Jeff Dow's work with the 90, I can't stop thinking about the possibilities... I could do so much more with it than I thought I could. Look here:
