For our Christmas card this year, we decided to let our dog take care of it. I think he did a pretty good job.
A little something I made from an awesome quote. Can you tell I’m setting goals right now?
I gave my life awaaaaaaay.
These cool clouds turned into a crazy storm that flooded our house.
I’ve been in the dark for a while. I’m coming back. Be patient.
Few. I can finally post this. I have been swimming it it for the past two weeks. A lot has happened: I moved into a new office; did a lot of work; killed a snake; did a lot of work; celebrated mothers day; did a lot of work.
The latest commercial has been in limbo for a bit and I couldn’t post it. The client had to decide if they were cool with it, a few people went on vacation and it got a shelved a bit. But here Read More
OK. I couldn’t contain myself.
I shared on Twitter the other night that “In my brain right now: planing a Samsung Galaxy S TV spot that will give a huge nod to the old-school Star Trek intro. A.D.D+GEEK=AWESOME”
This is what I have been working on today, and it is looking cool. I am so excited to start filming tomorrow. I have been doing some behind the scenes footage along the way too. The goal is to have it finished by Friday. Let’s keep our tribbles crossed.
The title is a play words that almost every photographer/designer/whatever finds themselves saying at least once… a week. In this case, ad agency Droga5 took the phrase to heart. They decided to create an entire commercial straight in Photoshop. Now, I have used Photoshop in a lot of Read More
You might recognize this shot from my portfolio section if you have been to the site recently. Allow me to move back a few weeks to explain my brain. One of my clients through Porcaro Communications asked us to produce a quick turnaround low-budget commercial for the release of the Motorola Xoom on their network. Normally when a client needs something pretty quick and cheep, we usually go with canned footage, or simple CGI to get the message across. I didn’t want to do that this time though. After watching The Bourne Identity for the umteenth a few weeks previously, I knew I wanted to try to do an action sequence for a commercial. Here, of course, was the challenge that I always seem to place upon myself, how to accomplish what I see in my mind quickly, under budget, and still look good. I was able to accomplish all three. Here’s how I did it: Read More
Ahhhhhhhh. The long vacation from the blog and social media is now over. You might have noticed that the blog looks a little bit different. In fact, my whole site is different. After much contemplation, I’ve decided to lose the photo-centric website. I’m not a commercial photographer any more. Well, not in the normal sense. I pretty much spend most of my time now directing and producing television commercials. And then when I am done with my day job, I host a few Internet shows. Yes, I still shoot pictures every now and then, but not nearly as much as I used to. I figured it was time for my site to reflect that.
I also haven’t been very serious about blogging for a while now, nor other forms social media for that matter. I have been very busy with other projects, most of which I haven’t talked about at all on the blog. This has been a good point in my life to look back and reflect on what direction I am going professionally. I still work for Porcaro Creative here in Austin, and work couldn’t be busier. That, of course, is a good thing when it comes to supporting a family. But it has also ment that I have become a little more reclusive than I would like to be. I suppose it has something to do with being stuck in a home office for two and a half years. But that’s all about to change. Read More
If you photograph they will come. Meaning horses of course. I assisted my lovely wife on one of her family portrait sessions for a cool family we know. We found this beautiful field behind a private property fence. After asking the owner if we could shoot there, she got some awesome shots of the family. I, on the other hand, Read More
We had a fun little family getaway at Sweet Berry Farm. I promised myself that I would shoot more while actually trying to focus on the family time. So I shot more from the hip. No photoshop just some great old fashioned iphone camera apps. My favorite picture had no effects what so ever, just right from the camera. Can you guess Read More
I need to get out more. Let me clarify that. I need to get out more . I’ve gone through my blog and have realized that I have let a good thing go to waste. Lets change that. Here is a photo I took while out scouting for commercial locations. Just insert Gruffalo.
Need I say more?
