I Miss the 2011 State Fair of Texas...

I love the State Fair of Texas. I go every year... at least since I was four years old. You can't really blame me for missing the first three years, since I was stuck in another state at the time and not able to drive myself down to Texas!

This year I documented the fair for D Magazine on their FrontBurner website and blog. They ran a bunch of my images throughout the month-long run of the fair. Of course, there's never enough room to run ALL my favorite shots, so I decided to go through and pick my personal favs. Some of these were published, and others are being seen by the public for the first time. Enjoy!

If you like these pics, you should check out my official website, filled with more great photos!

Photographing Soundgarden!!!

What more do I have to say?!? Growing up as a teenager during the 1980's and early 90's meant that I was the perfect age to appreciate all the angst and frustration that grunge music had to offer. And what bands best represented the grunge movement? Nirvana, Pearl Jam and Soundgarden!

Why wouldn't I get excited to shoot such an amazing band in concert for the Dallas Morning News? It was a blast, to say the least! I've photographed lead singer Chris Cornell a couple times before during his solo tours, and that was fun. However, nothing quite compares to seeing him perform with his grunge-era band mates.

Here's a tear sheet with a couple of my pics printed in the paper. You should definitely go to the paper's website and read Mario's review, as I think he nailed the evening spot on...
