I photographed a fun 50th birthday party last week and wanted to put a few shots up on the blog so they could see. The ladies all looked so pretty, the fire was burning in the fire place, the bartender was shaking up the cocktails and there was a lot of laughter going on!
The spring issue of Waterways Magazine came out this past week so I wanted to share with you my latest cover that I photographed. Eloise DeJoria is the model and they wrote a really nice article about her and all of her work she's involved in. Unfortunately, I didn't recieve both pages to the cover story so I can't post that but feel free to go to the Waterways Magazine website and view it there. We did the shoot on her 96 acre ranch out in Dripping Springs, TX where they are raising exotic animals. The view from their home is the background you see in the cover shot. The house sits upon a huge rock cliff and has that amazing view of the Fitzhugh River...stunning! Once again, I found myself in the most precarious spot during the shoot(on the edge of giant cliff) to get that "money" shot.
Every month, I compete in a print competition with my peers in the Austin Professional Photographers Association. Usually, I'm under the gun and flying by the seat of my pants so I'll just pick a photo that I've taken recently that I think might do well in the competition. WEEEEEEEELLLLLLLLLLLLLL, our association keeps growing and there are quite a few people competing and the competition is tough so it's time for me to step up my game. I've decided I'm going to have to put more effort into it if I'm ever going to win again. This was my first attempt at putting together a shoot specifically for the competition. While I didn't win, I love how these photos turned out of my friend Vicki. She looks so beautiful and did an amazing job modeling for me that day!
