A few weeks ago I had about 15 minutes with musician and Houston native Robert Ellis. I photographed him near campus, where he was playing a live show inside the KUT building later that day. He slipped on Lucchese’s Knox boots and we got some great shots.
So pumped to have shot the April cover for Tribeza this month. Carly- the cover girl- and the whole crew at Cheer Up Charlie’s are always so fun to work with and great to photograph. Find the full feature online HERE.
Here’s a few outtakes for a shoot i did for Camille Styles with the super sweet and incredibly stylish Gabi Ainslie- buyer and retail coordinator for Liz Lambert’s Bunkhouse Group.
I’ve been a fan of Shakey Graves for a while now and was so excited when Lucchese asked me to photograph him after one of his shows downtown. It was a quick session in the midst of SXSW but really happy to have gotten to photograph him.
On Valentine’s Day I photographed a few great bands for a story in Tribeza on World War II-era music that’s super popular in Austin. We shot at the beautiful East Side Showroom.
This top photo is a banjolin that belonged to the musician’s grandmother Patsy. That’s her self portrait and signatures of her band mates that played together in 1929.
This was a really fun shoot and bonus we were serenaded the whole time.
A few weeks ago I photographed an incredible installation by artist Laurie Frick created for the rad people at Thirteen23. The installation is based on 24 hours of the company’s data. You can get the full story HERE and see Laurie’s TED talk HERE.
Here’s a quick peek into a few of the homes I photographed for the January issue of Tribeza. All these homes will be part of their first ever Interiors Tour on January 25. It was really cool getting to see a glimpse inside these homes, meeting the designers and hearing them talk about their work.
A few days before the New Year, I photographed JD McPherson before his show at Emo’s East for Lucchese. JD and Jimmy were so great to work with and a really fun band to watch live. The rest of the story and performance photos are on Lucchese’s lifestyle site: The Last Word.
For the December issue of Tribeza magazine I photographed downtown restaurant Arro. Andrew and Mary Catherine Curren are such a cool husband and wife team. I’m really excited for them and about this new spot in town.
Evan Voyles the man behind Neon Jungle has one of the largest boot collections in the world. A few years ago they burned in a house fire, making them even more beautiful. He was kind enough to let Lucchese and I come in and photograph a few of the boots. Read the rest on The Last Word at Lucchese.
