Happy New Year, all! January is off to a great start just as December finished up nicely. Found out I was in the December issue of Photography Monthly in their Instagram feature, which was pretty exciting! Gus's Fried Chicken (yes, that world famous place) opened up in Austin and I've been fortunate to supply the restaurant with two of my pieces as well as doing some freelance work for them. The owners are so kind and very deserving of your business. If you're in Austin, go check Gus's out!

    In two weeks there will be an opening reception at Gallery Black Lagoon for their exhibit, "Viewfinder". I will be showing four pieces in this show so please join me on the 24th from 7-10 for the opening.
    Gallery Black Lagoon:
    4301 Guadalupe
    Austin, TX 78751

    Hope your new year is off to a good start. I'm hoping for great things in 2014! Now if only I could kick this cedar allergy...


    Pick up the November 2013 issue of Photography Monthly and check out my photos in their Instagram feature.

    I was fortunate to be chosen by The Guardian Camera Club for a portfolio review. This is what they had to say about my film images of rural Texas, all taken with fully analog cameras, including a 1950s Bakelite medium format film camera:
