Flavio and I have known each other for well more than 10 years. This is actually our second session. The first time we spent so much time catching up that I forgot to take pictures. This is also the first set of photos with my new camera, a Sony A77. Wonderful space-camera. Felt like using [...]
What a wonderful day. Virginia was awesome, just a real light. We talked about wonderful mutual friends, bugs, future aspirations and about what a damn beautiful day it was anyway.
Natalia and I talked about art and optimism versus cynicism. She told me about the best approach to minimalism, which is to get rid of everything that is not functional or genuinely sentimental. We also discussed the difference between being a violent person and training for violence. She has trained in MMA fighting, and I [...]
Shari and I talked of inspiration and the difficulty of making money making art and doing what you love. Shari created Charm School Vintage which has an attached hair salon and wig store. Just a great space with tons of neat finds.
Marc and I talked about the wonderful world of story games and how they are changing the geek landscape. We also talked about our dreams for making the top of the Frost building into the perfect Evil Genius Headquarters. Basically, we would need a helipad at the very least, and ideally it would shoot huge [...]
Nichole is Che’s cousin and is just lovely. We talked about the oppressive heat in Texas (and stopped for snow cones) and about picking up your life and figuring out who you are and what you want to do with it.
The delightful Marissa Dailey met me at Spider House for a photo session. We talked of photography and modeling, life and crazy people. She was wonderful and we had a great time!
Larissa was a wonderful model. We talked about photography, making a connection between photographer and subject and the joys of living in an interesting neighborhood. Toward the end of the session we joked about the hobo ideal and booked it over to the train tracks. Had a great time fashioning a bindlestick and wandering the [...]
Today I sat down with Oliver and we had a great conversation. We talked about the trouble with finding vintage clothes that fit, the movie Paris is Burning, and great ideas for T-shirts. Also about how lovely Rio Rita is during the hot summer months. Stellar afternoon!
Nicole, oh Nicole, you are lovely! I enjoyed our conversation and damn I have to agree, we look great! We discussed the top coffee in town ( Once Over Coffee, Patika, and Bennu ) and how just because a dress is vintage that does not necessarily mean that it is cute. Sometimes old clothes survive [...]
Che is one of my dear friends. We talked about the project and each other’s lives, plans for the future and her impending nuptials.
Cynthia is the first person I didn’t know already who wanted to do a iwttbpoy session! She was awesome. A fellow photographer and a teacher. We talked shop and about the sorry state of our state’s fiscal priorities.
Brandon is a bee keeper. We made plans to take some awesome bee related photos in the near future for his local honey brand.
Today was the very first sitting for IwantTOtakeBEAUTIFULpicturesOFyou.com. I met with the lovely Bonnie Rue and we spoke over breakfast tacos. Various topics included: camping as a metaphor for just accepting life as it is in the moment, the trouble at the intersection of art and commerce, our lives in general, and the joys of [...]
