I need to shave...

I had to take photo for my NBA press credentials (I'm shooting for the American Airlines Center during the NBA All Star game weekend here in Dallas), and I noticed that I really need to shave. I'm not going to share a photo with you, because it might scare any women and children looking at your monitor. I look like a mountain man or a grizzly bear. Well, I guess I'm keeping the facial hair through the weekend and then I'll shave.

Phonebooks need photos, too...

I'm not embarrassed to see my photos in the phonebook. It seems kind of silly, but hey... someone has to take photos for local companies, and they are going to use them in their ads - including the phonebook. It may not be as glamorous as a glossy advertisement in Vogue Magazine, but billboards, phonebooks and direct mailers pay bills.

I don't think I'd put these images in my portfolio, but they sure help fill in a slow week and keep you shooting in a bad economy! And, these companies are looking for safe, simple, quick shots. Not much thought, just shoot and get paid. It doesn't get much easier!

In deep thought...

I always thought this gorilla looked to be in deep thought. As peaceful and introspective as he seems, I'm glad there was a giant protective wall between us when I took the picture. He could've been thinking, "I wonder what that photographer tastes like?"
