Broken Spoke Sr. Session

We just did a session with amazing Natalie at the very cool Broken Spoke in Austin, TX.  The old bus out front is a great location for portraits!  Look for more pics soon!  I have been busy with lots of family sessions for XMas cards…will be posting lots more shots soon.   Have fun!


SXSW – Juke Kartel

I attended SXSW this year in Austin as one of my favorite bands called “Juke Kartel” was playing an acoustic set  downtown.  It was great to meet the band and lead singer Toby Rand (above).  Bunch of nice Aussie guys! I asked Toby if I could take some shots and he said no problem!  It was my first band photos ever!  Just used an on camera flash as there were quite a few people at the bar and I tried to stay out of their way!

Photo shoot in Austin

This past Friday we had another great photo shoot.  Our lovely model was Tiffany!  We had lots of fun shooting downtown and grabbing many shots.  We happened to be shooting in front of a new bar bar called TenOak …it just opened this past week and the owner invited us in to shoot inside!

It has a cool vibe to it and a must to check out if you heading out downtown in Austin.  The seating in front of the bar has a top that was made from beautiful wood.  It was super reflective.  I asked Tiffany and the owner if she could lay down on it and I’d try a few shots and see if they would come out.

Whats cool was that Michael Tuuk was taking a photo of the bar at the same time I was taking this shot! Click on his link and you can see Tiffany in this pose from a distance and on the far right you can see my softbox.   Michael’s shot was very cool!!

I used a Nikon SB-600 with the LumiQuest III Softbox attached positioned about 6 feet on the bar directly in front of her.   The reflection looks great!  I touch up in software call “Portrait Professional“.  Simple and easy!
