My friend got to shoot some stuff for Ruta Maya the other day he asked me to help him. I mostly was his reflector boy but shot off a few of my own. But before we left to Ruta Maya I was outside my apartment and saw five unsavory characters with long hair, “hippies”. I thought what a great time to photograph and capture part of the true Austin, TX spirit than by photographing 5 hippies with long hair on their home turf. Luckily they didn’t kill me and were kind enough to let me take there photo all they wanted was an autograph. So what better than a day full of Ruta Maya and Hippies. Here are the photos. I hope you enjoy.
Here are a few more examples of the catalog photoshoot the other day. Shooting these portraits of Charlsey was a lot of fun and different than what I normally do.

In case you’ve never seen this before I write another blog/webpage called collective perspectives there is lots of info about music in Austin and the art scene as well as feautured artists with work available through the site ranging from reprints to originals. Here is a piece from our most recently added artist.
I recently shot some catalog work for a scarf company out of Nepal based in Boston. It was one of my first catalog type shoots. Catalog photos are tough because you want consistency but its hard to decide on one light set up that you are going to use the entire time. As well as at the end of the day the final photos are going to be used on the web or in print so they need to be edited very nicely. Here are a few of my favorite images. Laura K did make up.
The scarf company will have a website up soon that I will share with you.
