'Tis the season.... of painfully long holiday events.
Schoolchildren wait for Hillary Clinton to speak in Dallas on Tuesday, Nov. 17, 2015.
Sarah and I went to the famous Dallas Quarry (actually in McKinney, TX) for a quick portrait & exploration. Beautiful water... but hard to believe people cliff-jump into there!
Some photos I took earlier this summer for Buzzfeed News were recently run in a fascinating and extensive article on the failures and triumphs of medical marijuana. I spent the day with a local DFW family whose lives were changed by CBD - check out the images and article here.
American Airlines Center, Dallas, TX. September 14th, 2015.
I had a recent assignment to shoot a some local Friday Night Lights (but none of the game!). For those not from Texas, high school football is a BIG DEAL here and the stadium was packed as it was the first game of the season. Here's a few selects from the evening.
A selection of images from Ted Cruz's presidential campaign rally in Fort Worth, Texas on Sep. 3, 2015.
A few images for a rally outside Arlington Police Department protesting the recent death of college student, Christian Taylor.
I covered a protest today for a print publication and there were some protesters who were really committed to their fashion choices despite the 100 degree heat (full suits and knee-high pleather boots).
It's been a while since I left the state-wide campaign trail, but Presidential hopefuls are starting to visit Texas. I enjoy the challenge of trying to take a new photo in such a highly-orchestrated environment. Also, being around people that are excited about voting is really fun. The story is here at the Texas Tribune. Scroll through the images below to see a few extras.
I was at the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge the other day waiting for some portrait subjects to arrive when I looked up and saw these workers on the very tip top of the bridge. Eek! Best view in Dallas but it's a long, long way down.
I recently covered the Waco biker-gang shootout for Reuters, and one of my images ended up running on the front page of the Wall Street Journal the following day (5/19)! Very exciting, and it's certainly my favorite image from the event as well. Per usual, access is very restricted for press around a crime scene, so I was happy to stumble upon these two lookouts under the Twin Peaks sign while no other photographer were around.

Over the last few weeks, I spent a little time with Dallas' premier senior ladies dance troupe, the Tap Dazzlers. The average dancer in the group is 65 (minimum age is 45). I even met one dancer who's soon to be 90! They're a truly talented group and they have an inspiring practice.
