I’m a Dallas, TX freelance photographer with a full complement of professional Canon and Quantum equipment that travels with me on location. My work spans Weddings, Glamour/Fashion, Studio & Environmental Portraiture, Corporate Events, Political Conventions, Legislative Galas and Private Parties.
Last month, I shot four NBA All-Star Weekend 2010 parties for Girls Do Talk, a TV Internet show. These parties were like the ones you see in Hollywood with the red carpet, white background with logos and celebrities posing for photos and interviews. And this past weekend I did an outdoor model shoot [group and individual images] with 17 models at Cottonwood Park in Richardson. I’m in the midst of finishing up the optimization of the latter. I’ve also done a number of party events with Girls Do Talk including the Josh Howard Celebrity Event at the House of Blues, the NFL FYLHT Party at the Cavenaugh Flight Museum, the opening VIP Event for Dallas Urban Fashion Week at Millennium Motors/follow-up Fashion Show at The Grid and shooting stills at the video taping of their live TV show at Bengal Coast. Also have shot at the State Republican Party of Texas Convention, several Legislative Galas for the National Assn. of Insurance and Financial Advisors and a going-away party for a well-known photographer.
