I was happy to spend some time recently with Martha Lynn Kale (and her beautiful son!) to shoot the May cover of REAL Magazine. The story was about the work-life balance we all try hard to achieve, and it was a lot of fun to work on these images. I am looking forward to becoming more ‘balanced’ one day.
Photographed at the Hilton in downtown Austin.
If you’re a member of PPA, check the November issue of their magazine. There’s a story on my custom Christmas card work. Plus, a shot I submitted got an honorable mention for the cover contest. This is the second year in a row I’ve made the HM list. One day, I will make the cover :)
Last night was the launch party for Austin Man Magazine. I had the honor of photographing Roy Spence for the cover of the first issue, and it was a blast. You can check out the spreads below, but let’s start with a short behind-the-scenes video from the shoot:
The ATX Man team asked me to provide a quick bio for this issue’s contributor section:
Last night was the launch party in downtown Austin. It was great to see everyone together again who had worked on the magazine, as well as past cover women from Austin Woman Magazine. Here are some point-and-shoot shots from the event, starting with me and Roy:
Here’s Christopher Garvey, the co-founder and publisher.
On the left is Deborah Hamilton-Lynne, the executive editor, and Jenny Lin, who handled all the makeup at the shoot.
Ketan Patel, the Art Director, and Michelle Valles, who was the cover woman we photographed for Austin Woman Magazine back in July 2010.
I am really excited for Austin Man Magazine and their brand new launch! I hope to do more shoots with them in the future. A big shout out to everyone who was part of the shoot, including Jenny Lin, Eric Kotara, Dave McLaughlin, Deb Hamilton-Lynne, Christopher Garvey, plus Roy and the great people at GSD&M.
I am excited to announce that Austin Man Magazine (ATX Man) will be launching on June 1st! I did the cover shoot for the first issue, and it was a ton of fun. The person they profiled is definitely someone who has contributed a lot to Austin and its community. Here’s a short video below from Fox 7 announcing the coming launch. In it you can see the guy, except for the face (which has been conveniently blocked out :) ).
We captured some great images during the shoot and it was a pleasure to work with the new ATX Man Magazine crew including Deborah, Christopher, Ketan and Jenny as well as my buds Dave and Eric who helped out a lot. We rolled some BTS footage as well, which we’ll have ready when the first issue goes live.
I’m looking forward to the first issue and a bright future for Austin Man Magazine! Check them out here. Who do you think is on the cover? Leave your best guess in the comments!
I photographed Lisa Copeland for the February issue of Austin Woman magazine and here are some of my favorites.
In addition to being an integral part of the Nyle Maxwell family of dealerships in Austin, Lisa also co-founded Women Impacting the Nation, an organization devoted to raising money for children of fallen soldiers. She also started The Project 19 Foundation, which helps women attain their leadership goals. And, as if that’s not enough, she has been instrumental in bringing a new Fiat dealership to Austin this year!
We spent a few hours photographing her at her beautiful house in north Austin. We also took a few shots in the parking lot of a Nyle Maxwell dealership. A big thanks to all who helped out on this fun day!
The February issue of Austin Woman magazine is in stores and available online. I shot the cover for their profile of Lisa Copeland. Lisa has been in the car business for over 20 years, and she is bringing a Fiat dealership to Austin pretty soon. We photographed around her house, where she has a beautiful horse and incredible sunsets. We also shot at the Dodge dealership where she works.
I’m particularly proud of this issue as it’s the 12th collaboration between myself and the great crew at Austin Woman Magazine. Besides Lisa, we’ve photographed filmmakers, boxers, social workers, television anchors, organic food growers and more. It has been a great ride so far, and I’m looking forward to more projects in the future with them!
Here’s a lo-res scan of the cover – I’ll post more images from the shoot soon!
