Cody Hamilton for The Reserve at Lake Travis & Rockport TX

Well, I finally had a chance to work alongside my friend and ridiculously talented digital artist, photographer Cody Hamilton. We got booked by Marketing Matters (now re-branded White Hat) ad agency right here in Austin to create new imagery for The Reserve at Lake Travis, and a brand new property in Rockport TX called The Reserve at St. Charles Bay. Both resorts were gorgeous! We brought out a small group of models to each and shot some excellent images. Coming to a billboard near you!

Fruit of the Loom Screenprint Designers with Jimmy Williams

Let me start by saying that Jimmy Williams is absolutely wonderful to work with. SFW ad agency (also based in Raleigh) hired Jimmy to direct and shoot a fresh campaign for Fruit of the Loom HD Cotton, their premium line of shirts in 4 cities: Bozeman MT, Montgomery AL, Elizabeth CO, and Reading PA. We brought with us 3 amazing crew members for camera, light, and grip expertise – together with the ad agency and client folks, we made a tremendous team! Within each market we had been connected with a screenprinting shop that loves the Fruit HD product and has a great story to tell. Also in each market, we supplemented our crew with talented locals – some of which I’ve already worked with and thoroughly enjoyed before! The interviews with the shop owners were colorful and heartwarming. Through all the b-roll captures of the printing process, I learned a lot about the screenprinting industry.

GQ’s Selena Gomez in Dallas by Victor Demarchelier

The last editorial shoot I worked on in 2013 for Entertainment Weekly with Jack Black. This shoot was for GQ magazine featuring the beautiful and talented Singer/Actress Selena Gomez! With photographer Victor DeMarchelier and most of the crew coming from NYC, they needed me here as a local. I helped finding locations, and securing the local crew and transportation. The NYC team was excellent. Total pros in each of their realms. I really enjoyed the traveling photo assistant and digi tech – Those fellas rocked. GQ even sent out a video team for her interview and another solo gal for the BTS footage. All together, we set up some really gorgeous scenes with so many great textures in and around the farm house, retired stable, and beautiful old airstream trailer on the property. Victor DeMarchelier evoked some beautiful emotion and looks from Selena, a TX native and resident. She looked gorgeous in every shot.
