Another little outing with the Sony a7RIII that was sent to me to test out. This time with the Dallas Mavericks Dancers at the American Airlines Center. An excellent environment to test out the ISO sensitivity, white balance accuracy, and of course the focus tracking. Hip Hop artist J. Cole made an appearance also.Read More

A band, a field, smoke, and a raw approach. A simple concept drawn on a bar napkin turned into the image above. And Henry the Archer was the perfect band to accomplish it.
Henry the Archer is the brain child of native New Jersey boy Richard Hennessy. Last year Richard was given the opportunity to transfer his job down to Fort Worth, Texas, so he made his way down south with the hopes of keeping Henry the Archer alive. Shortly after arriving he joined forces with Kevin Geist on drums, and Matt Hembree on bass to round out a three piece of post punk and sex pop.Read More
993.... I was a young angst fueled teenager that was obsessed with fast and noisy punk rock music . The louder and faster, the better, but I was also becoming more and more interested in the North Texas music scene. Local radio station, KDGE The Edge would occasionally release a CD entitled Tales From The Edge that would in the end, consist of 11 volumes that were curated by DJ/Music Director George Gimarc. Each volume focused on music and bands from North Texas with a slight dabbling into the Austin music scene.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
This past Sunday, Swedish heavy metal band, In Flames return to Dallas in support of their latest release Sounds of a Playground Fading with Trivium, Veil the Maya, and Kyng along for the ride. Each of the opening bands did a pretty decent job warming up the crowd, but for me, this night was all about finally seeing In Flames after gaining knowledge of them in 2003. Well that's kind of misleading, I did see them at Ozzfest in 2005 on the side stage, but seeing a band in the parking lot of an amplitheater with crappy sound and a 20 minute set really doesn't count as seeing them. I digress.Read More
