Rock N' Roll Memorabilia Auction

I had an unusual opportunity present itself the other day when a fellow photographer referred me to an individual who was auctioning off some pretty extraordinary Rock N' Roll collectibles. The auction house needed some nice photos of the items, and I ended up in a house full of some amazing artifacts of modern musical history. I wanted to share some of the rare guitars from the collection:

Now that the new 'I Am DFW' TV spots I shot back in May are starting to air, I thought I'd share some of the portraits from the series as well. This is a shot of famed chef and restauranteur Stephan Pyles, who is widely credited with pioneering the Southwest Cuisine movement. He was a pleasure to shoot, and an absolute pro. Thanks to Chef Pyles and Creative Agency Mother NY!

Photographer's Sketchbook: Gimme Some Color!

Maybe it's a summer thing. I've had a lot of fun playing around with adding bright, punchy colors to some of my portraits, and am very pleased with the results. Not sure if I'm going to keep heading this direction, but I thought I'd share the results anyway.
