Joe Gumm For North Texas Child

I shot this portrait of Fox Sports anchor and author Joe Gumm with his family for North Texas Child. It was a really fun shoot. My many thanks to the Gumm family and the folks over at Lauren Publications.

Roots Picnic Outtakes

Here are a couple of outtakes from the backstage portrait series I shot at the Roots Picnic on June 4th. You might recognize a few of the subjects...

The Roots Picnic - The Roots Crew

© Nick Prendergast

This shot was not planned. I shot mostly single portraits on the grey backdrop you see behind the guys, but when an opportunity presents itself to get a group shot of the best band in hip hop, you'd be a fool not to take it. This was moments before the Roots climbed onstage to play a set with Esperanza Spalding. What an incredible show!

More to come...

Roots Picnic - Arrival

photo by Trevor Paulhus

Just flew back in from a trip to Philly where I had the privilege to shoot backstage at the 4th Annual Roots Picnic. I'll post some of the portraits soon, but I thought in the meantime I'd post this pic of me the morning of The Picnic, having just grabbed the gear off the baggage claim. What a great trip/shoot!

Road Trip - Austin, TX

My lady and I took a road trip down to Austin, TX this week. Spent a lot of time playing with the Instagram app, and thought I'd share some of the snapshots.
