This Spring, Texas has had record level rain fall.  I've never seen anything quite like it in all the years I've lived here.  We've had so much rain that all the local lakes are reaching or are now over capacity.  They've started releasing water at spillways.  Such was the case last week at the Lake Ray Roberts Spillway.  They opened that puppy 100%, releasing 25,000 gallons a second!  I've never seen such violent and intense water come through that spillway chute.  To get this shot, I had to lean out over the wall, avoiding the high waves which crashed over onto the crowd every couple minutes.  I got soaked, but managed to keep my camera dry... enough.  It was a fun evening.

Wednesday Addams

I teamed up with my friend Alaina to create the adult version of Wednesday Addams.  She pulled it off with perfection!  We were really happy with the photos from this shoot.

Long Live Banter

This was my favorite photo of one of my favorite places to eat and hang out in this little town of Denton Texas.  Banter Bistro was a mainstay just off the town square for 10 years.  They recently closed this past spring.  This made me sad.  But i'll always have the photos I took there to keep my memories alive.  What a great place, filled with great people.

Catching Some Air...

Skate parks are a great place to shoot some quick action.  I captured this image last summer at the Lewisville Texas Skatepark.  We just showed up with our cameras and some lighting gear and started setting up.  It didn't take long before most the advanced skaters in the park because performing jumps and stunts for us.  It was a fun time.  I shot this with a Canon 5DmkII and a Canon 16-35mm f/2.8mm L II lens.  Funny thing was, when I first looked at this shot, I flagged it as a "reject".  It wasn't until I went back through my photos about a month later that I decided to give this one another look.  After working on it a bit, it's become one of my favorite skateboard shots from the day!
