New Portrait: Phil Romano

I shot Phil Romano outside the future site of his new development at the foot of the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge: Trinity Groves' Restaurant Incubator. This was a very tricky assignment, as the project is actually still in its infancy. It was a pleasure to shoot Phil - creator of Romano's Macaroni Grill, Nick & Sam's and Fuddruckers (where the 6th grade version of this photographer had his first date) - and to hear about all the future residents of the development, including a brewery, a BBQ joint and over a dozen other projects.

New Work: Hanh Merriman - Life In Travel

For this shoot with travel and fashion blogger Hanh Merriman, I knew I wanted to highlight both sides of her blog Life In Travel when picking a location. After tossing concepts back and forth, I asked Hanh what she thought about shooting outside of and aboard a private plane. She loved the idea, and happened to have a contact with access to a luxurious Gulf Stream jet at an airport in Addison, TX. This was such a fun shoot and Hanh was a fantastic subject. My thanks to Modern Luxury for the assignment.

New Work: Lost Oak Winery

I had the extreme privilege of shooting Gene Estes and Jim Evans of Lost Oak Winery. The guys were fantastic subjects, and obviously very fond of each other. They even let the writer and me sample some of their award-winning product. Excellent stuff, to be sure.

Here are a few outtakes from the great time I spent with Gene and Jim:
