Joe Vitale Succeed cover shoot

A couple of weeks ago Joe Vitale contacted me about doing a photo shoot for the June/July '08 edition of Succeed magazine. As always it was a blast working with Joe and he is always the gracious host. The best part of the day was photographing Joe with his new Panoz race car that was previously owned by Steven Tyler of Aerosmith. So, to read more about Joe and to check out the amazing photos head over to to get your copy.

Stepping back in time

I recently had a fashion shoot for LA designer Marrika Nakk. Marrika's clothes are very cowgirl inspired so I was looking for a really great barn to shoot in but since it was going to be 100 degrees the day of the shoot I decided to find something indoors. There is an old 1940's opera house in my home town that I have always wanted to shoot in and it ended up being the perfect place. I called up my good friend and make up artist Carol Wagener out of Houston to see if she would be interested in coming up for the shoot and fortunately for me she was available. I had to get at least one more shoot with her because she recently signed with Timothy Priano and is heading to New York in a couple of weeks.

Rocking with Ruthie

I LOVE my job! I had the pleasure of spending today photographing the phenominal Ruthie Foster. I have been wanting to photograph Ruthie for a while so long story short I contacted her manager last December to see about setting up a shoot and after working around her tour we finally got a date set. It took us five months to finally hook up but it was well worth the wait. I contacted my good friend Billy Crockett at Blue Rock studios who I shoot for every month to see if I could borrow his studio for my shoot with Ruthie. He graciously accepted my request and gave me access to the studio for the afternoon. Not only did I get some amazing photos of Ruthie I also got my own free 2 hour concert. If you aren't familiar with Ruthie check her out at, you won't be disappointed. Thank You Ruthie for a great day!!!

Oh I Wish....

After 37 years on the planet I finally saw the Oscar Mayer Weiner Mobile in person and I actually had my camera with me.
