Quote for the Day

Photography, as we all know, is not real at all. 
It is an illusion of reality with which we create our own private world.

Arnold Newman

Just wanted to let everyone know that you can now head over to my website and see a music video I directed for Fort Worth's own blues legend Larry Lampkin. The song is called "Losing My Soul" from his new album, When I Get Home. 

Larry is an amazing blues musician and someone I am proud to call my friend. We have known each other for almost 15 years now and have been talking about doing this video for about the same amount of time. 

So head over to my site and check it out! Please feel free to post it and share with it your friends on Facebook or Twitter. You can buy Larry's amazing new album on itunes or on his website,

The links are below, turn the sound up and watch Larry bring it.

There is only you and your camera. 
The limitations in your photography are in yourself, 
for what we see is what we are.

Quote for the Day

Like every other means of expression, photography, if it is to be utterly honest and direct, should be related to the life of the times – the pulse of today.
