Fun Portraits at Lagunitas During SXSW, Charles Bradley and Crash Alchemy were the main attraction at this years Lagunitas event at container bar during this years SXSW. I was lucky enough to be invited by the Crash Alchemy professionals. Boy did they have a performance, it was a little dizzying the number of performers and acts that were happening, there was a make out booth, egyptians posing in the photo booth live with you, lots of free beer, that was very tasty, Charles Bradley walking through the crowd, playing live, with two outfit changes. It was incredible, a variety show of tremendous sorts. The young lady doing the Lyra was so talented and beautiful, it kept the attention of the crowd beyond a doubt. Anyway it was maybe my top performer for best surprise party during SXSW. I didn’t know Mr. Bradley was going to be there so it was just like a super double whammy.
I recently picked up a new client, and a great one at that. They gave me quite a bit of free reign but had some specifics. Can’t wait to keep making great images for Camden. Apartment photos in Austin, lots of new apartments and condos are being built, so if you need photos or aerial photos and videos of your property, Jonathan Garza and Austin Real Estate Photography are the best to fulfill your vision.
I photographed Phamstar for some promotional material. She is a DJ and producer in Austin. https://soundcloud.com/phamstar make sure to follow her and check out her next set or have her out to your next event.
We had a great time shooting in the studio she’s just as bright and smart as she is beautiful.
I recently had the honor to be asked to photograph the Texas Lyceum Public Conference. I had no Idea what it was when I signed up for it but it turned out to be a very interesting conference with leaders of state, knowledge and industry discussing subjects or ideas that are important for the state of Texas. There were many interesting people there, Red McCombs and the old owner of the Houston Astros were my two faves, as well as the Business leaders they discussed water issues and oil which were both interesting to hear the ideas.
I was hangin out in the back of empire in the loading area for the bands after videoing Ruby Jane. We were smokin and then I looked over and there was Gary Clark Jr. I couldn’t remember his name at the time but knew who he was went over introduced myself asked if I could take his picture. He didn’t tell me his name but just shook my hand posed and then I adjusted my camera and took about 4 pictures they almost all came out good but here are my two favorites. He played later that night for SXSW at the Heard show case but I had already put my camera away for the night. I had never heard him play before but boy does he command the stage. Very interesting performer.
Editorial Architecture, Interior photography, Horseshoe Bay. I recently photographed for a Texas based magazine a beautiful home in Horseshoe Bay. I liked the way it turned out. The home owner was very kind as well.
Since Ive been shooting so many kitchens, I even decided to make use of my own. I Grilled and baked and cooked the other day. But thats besides the point. If you have known me in the past I don’t usually cook more than eggs every other month, all of these beautiful kitchens are inspiring me though. New work for Under Budget Kitchens Copyright Jonathan Garza pHotography 2014
Some new shots to be on Houzz soon for Under Budget kitchens. Ive been making new marketing material for UB on a monthly basis sometimes the hardest part is only photographing the kitchen.
This home in particular had some great hill country views no other homes for as far as the eye can see.
Two weeks ago I had the honor of traveling to Galveston to photograph for the Environmental Defense Fund. It was a fun overnighter I brought my two favorite assistants and we had a blast and got some great photos. I would call these environmental portraits, you could also call them Corporate headshots, commercial portraits on location in Galveston.
I recently had the privilege of meeting the owner and CEO of Mr. Rekey and doing some portraits for some new editorial’s coming out about his business. Jonathan Garza Photography also did some internal work for them doing photos of some of their workers and their full uniforms, showing how to be properly dressed for the job. The owner and workers were very nice and easy to photograph. I will be working with their team more in the future this is what my contact their said about the photos “I was VERY happy with the results and I really appreciate your time with this project” Cris. Heres a few examples of the commercial portraits/headshots and some of the environmental portraits I did for their team.
