False Moonlight

I'm bidding on a job for a firm called Schok in MI. They wanted to see a photo with this lighting tecnique and Dexter wouldn't be still so I had to model. I love the way it turned out. I should do more wierd lighting stuff. I just get so used to doing the same old thing and forget to try new things.

I was so flattered. Travis asked for a copy of the photo. I think its because I like watering his plants so much. I can't help it. I hate to see wilted plants.

Happy Birthday DOROTHY!!!

She is the baby sister of rock sensation Jonothan Meigburg. What a wonderful gal. She has great taste in clothes, lives in a house that is hands down the coolest and she's nice. She's even been to one of my dinner parties. I wanted to make an ad with her in it, but it didn't quite work out so I'll have to try it again.

I did take this photo setting up the lights. It is sort of umm... shall we say ... eery.

Well team. Looks like I was right!!! Carol Keeton Strayhorn will be running for governor. The politics department assigned me to photograph her a few weeks back. I took this photo of her campaign communications manager, Dick Ellis, looking sort of like a shmuck.

Garbage Sitation

RRRGGG!!! Can't believe I got a ticket from the garbage man for having too much trash. The nurve. The cart lid wouldn't close... but seems like everyone else has too much trash sometimes too. RRRGGG. Do I have to bribe him? How much money will a life of excess trash cost me? Luckily it the fine just gets tacked on my utility bill - which the bill fairy pays.

Daily Texan

Look mom. I'm in the newspaper. A nice gal from the Texan took my picture with a very cute kitten. Not sure why she described the kitten as being in a Kleenex box. It looks much more like a kitten geoteen(sp?) to me.

Look mom - the magazine gave me a full page! When I took the magazine off the newstand and saw my photospread I started crying. This isn't the first time I've had photos in a big magazine (People, US Weekly, and Variety) but it was the first time I was able to hold the magazine in my hands - flip thru and see them on the page. Usually I only see the proofs I send out and then forget to look for them in print. This time a friend tipped me off (Nylon - June/July) so I went to check it out. The pictures aren't anything special but it's fun! And to think I almost went to law school.

Another night another rock show. Photographed Bright Eyes and the Faint tonight at Stubbs. I stayed for most of the show and it was HOT. Girls kept fainting and having to be passed out. Met a nice photo girl named Cambria who does all of the photography for the venue.

Funny thing about the Faint. They were at this party put on by Nylon I was photographing and the bouncer would not let them in because they were not on the list. :)

Brown Eyes

How wierd. I was at a "southern decadance" party tonigth at the The Pedernales lofts on sixth street. I dressed down to be ironic. Edwin took my picture and when I got home I noticed something really wierd about the photo.

The very strange part is my eyes are brown in the photo. Usually the are blue or maybe green or grey. Someone recently told me my eyes looked like marbles. Not sure if it was meant to be a compliment or an observation. In this photo they are just brown and then more brown. I also photographed a rock show, but I'm too sleepy to post those pictures.

Terrible news. Doctors office called today turns out I have strep throat. No wonder I've been feeling so lowsy. Thinking about it - this photo is a little graphic. If anyone is offended just leave a comment and I'll replace it with a photo of the EXTREMELY cute kitten I'm taking care of for my brother.

Hard day at the office. Thank goodness the dr fixed me up with some good drugs. The shoot today was much harder than I thought it would be. Lighting an ice sculputer is far more complex than you may imagine. This photo took 3 lights, two assistants and about an hour. My brain is hurting from all the thinking I did today.


M Sledd is sick in bed! Please send chicken soup and orange juice and someone to change Dexter's litter box. Planning to go to the doctor today. Maybe he'll fix me up.
