Courtney was in the studio a few days ago. I first shot her on location a couple of weeks ago where I was able to convince her mother to bring her in for a headshot. She’s real easy to photograph and it did not take much to get a reaction out of her. The image above was a captured moment where she was looking at her parents. I’m not sure why she was looking over there but I loved her look. Unfortunately, I only had a chance to snap one image before she turned her attention back to the camera. I tried to tell her to look back and do whatever she was doing but it was too late and we could not duplicate the image I saw just moments before.
Most of my headshots are against white. This one is against grey because I wanted to try something different for me and I was worried the black top would be too attention grabbing so I turned off the backlight that normally would hit the white seamless paper behind my subject.

These fine men were on duty keeping everyone safe and ready to react to any emergency during a race held at Deep Ellum. I’ve always enjoyed street photography and I did have my Leica M9 with a 28mm/2.0 Summicron around my neck so I had to capture them before the action.
I recently attended and photographed Ambit Energy’s Simulcast 2013, which is the company’s annual kickoff event that is a day full of valuable information, inspiration and announcements. It was an opportunity for the company’s consultants around the country to share goals for the year as well as to hear from a host of speakers including the founders Jere Thompson, Jr. and Chris Chambless as well as top producers and also professional mentor and business builder Blair Singer.

On St. Patrick’s Day, I was out working while most everyone else was celebrating this wonderful holiday. I was shooting the UMass at Penn State men’s lax game for Inside Lacrosse Magazine, which is the source for the sport. My favorite shot from the college game was the above celebration after UMass scored the winning goal in sudden death during over time. Instead of sitting in the corner as I usually do, I positioned myself mid-field so I had a clear view of both team benches. It had been a close match during the entire game so I wanted a sport I can shoot either bench. I did not watch the action during sudden death. I was focused on the attacking team’s bench and I was going to release the shutter the moment the team scored. I would’ve watched the action then turned toward the bench but I would’ve missed the peak celebration when UMass maintained its undefeated season.
