Saturday afternoon I had the pleasure of photographing Fowlerfest. Mother nature decided rain in the Austin area was more important, so the festival had to be shut down before Kevin could take stage. Bummer. I was really looking forward to this festival because I rented a fisheye lens to get some new material. Sometimes you prepare yourself but in the end you still can’t control everything. A good life lesson everyone needs to learn! I’m not too overly pleased with the photos I took and I’m not 100% on board with the fisheye. I’ve decided to experiment with it again at another show I have coming up since I didn’t get to use it much Saturday. Oh well. Here are the photos that I did get. Hope you enjoy!



Rock On.


Lone Star Jam Day 1

One of my favorite festivals to photograph each year is Lone Star Jam. This year a new treat happened when it was announced that Lone Star Jam was TWO days. Hell yeah! The lineup for Day 1 was bananas and included: William Clark Green, Curtis Grimes, Granger Smith/Earl Dibbles Jr, Charlie Robison, Stoney LaRue, Roger Creager, Aaron Watson, Reckless Kelly and two of my favorites: Whiskey Myers and Josh Abbott Band. The weather was perfect, the beer was cold and the music was kick ass! I’d like to thank Dave Lytle and 415 Productions for always taking care of me! Enjoy these photos from Day 1 and check back for Day 2!

Rock On.

Amber’s Angels Benefit Concert

A couple of days ago the 2nd Annual Amber’s Angels benefit concert took place at Midnight Rodeo Austin. I was fortunate enough to photograph for the Amber’s Angels organization again. Amberlynn Fett was a sweet soul that was taken too early from this world, but her legacy is still living on. Amberlynn passed away from her life long battle of Cystic Fibrosis in November of 2011. She was a HUGE TX Music and Texas Longhorn fan. Though, I didn’t know her personally, I would see her at shows {a lot of times with her mom} and she would be beaming ear to ear while listening to the music. Her smile was infectious and she loved helping others, which was obvious on Monday night with the amount of support that was there in her honor.

Monday night was a celebration for her as well as her charity that she started and was heavily involved in before she passed away. Debbie, it was a great honor to photograph for not only the organization, but for you personally. Hope you enjoy the photos as much as I enjoyed taking them.

love it. live it. capture it.
