When a friend calls you up and has the idea of doing a white-trash themed holiday shoot, it really gets the wheels turning. While being the complete opposite of a high class fashion shoot, there really is nothing better then letting loose and having fun on a shoot where you can be as wild as you want to be. This shoot was a blast, and the AirBNB that Michelle picked out down in Austin couldn’t have been any better!Read More
After getting ready at the hotel and doing some quick studio shooting (see yesterday's post) we headed off to the restaurant in a stretched Hummer Limo in what I can only describe as the most out of control 10 miles I've ever traveled! When we arrived at the restaurant it was bursting at the seams.Read More
So here we go again, another year where the entire music industry takes over downtown Austin for 6 days of absolute chaos. At any given time through out the year there are more music venues in Austin then any other city in North America, during South By Southwest that number triples, with any open area becoming a stage or a spot for bands to play. Bands from all over the planet make their way to Austin in hopes of making an impression and changing their careers; their lives, forever.....Read More

Oh it's summer time. The air is getting warmer, the days are getting longer, and bikini contests are popping up everywhere. But none of these contest can hold a candle to the annual Twin Peaks Bikini Contest. Each location across the country holds a contest in their restaurant to award one lucky girl a cash prize and a chance to compete in the finals held May 30th in Dallas, Texas. Eric and I traveled down to the Round Rock location last week to, thanks to the greatness of Jeremie Perez, help judge their semi-finals.Read More
My goal for SXSW this year was just to go down there, wonder aimlessly, and just see what we happened upon (see yesterday's post here). The only thing we had in stone was making it to The Main Friday night to see The Artery Foundation Showcase featuring A Lot Like Birds, Chunk! No, Captain Chunk!, For The Fallen Dreams, Attila, Woe Is Me, Chelsea Grin and A Skylit Drive.Read More
South by Southwest is a chaotic orgy of sensory overload that leaves your body and mind pummeled for days. Over 90 venues and 2000 artists turn downtown Austin into the largest music festival for 5 days every year. It's a music nerd's nirvana.
It's been years since I've made the trip down for SXSW, and until a couple of weeks ago, it looked like I was going to be missing out on another year. But my schedule cleared up and the madness of last minute planning began.Read More
