Sweeney-Landers Wedding

I recently had the privilege of attending the wedding between two of my Houston friends (and former co-workers) over Mardi Gras weekend in New Orleans. Here’s a few snaps from the 15 billion photos I shot.

Hosmer Engagement Photos

Here’s a quick set of snaps I took near Downtown Orlando for a co-worker’s engagement announcement. I had about an hour before sundown, and broke my 50mm lens so everything is shot on a tilt-shift lens.

Local 2 Investigates Campaign

Here’s a look at the investigative team promo campaign I produced at KPRC in Houston, TX. It was a “refresh” of the existing brand image, but with a more modern, “techie” look – while keeping an element of the urban grit. This was the introductory spot, with each of the team members getting their own vignette spots.

Want to know how I got some of those cool video shots? I used Lensbaby lenses on my DSLR camera.

Dr Oz Free Houston Clinic

Back in late 2009 I was hired by The Dr Oz show as a staff photographer for a special episode in Houston, TX. I spent the day, snapping hundreds of photos of people getting free checkups and following around Dr Oz, as he helped people and shot segments for the show. It was a long and exhausting day, but really fun to be part of that media machine.

The episode later aired using a ton of my photos, and DR Oz gave me a shout out at the end of the show. Here’s a few of my favorites:

“We Are Houston” Promo Campaign

My first big job as Promo Producer at KPRC in Houston was to produce a series of campaign spots to premier during the Superbowl. We rented a soundstage in downtown Houston, and went to work refreshing the Local 2 news team’s commitment to the community and news product. We eventually landed several Emmy nominations for the spots and campaign.
