A couple of months ago a couple of music friends of mine asked if they might use one of my photographs on their upcoming CD. I was flattered, of course. When it came time for me to deliver the photo it was apparent they had not settled on a designer, so I volunteered to take on the project. In a little over a week I'd scouted and shot a rural Texas road, found a way to work in another favorite photo, and had artwork ready to go.
Photoshoot for singer/rapper Jake Lloyd's upcoming EP. We rode around central and east Austin, scouting locations and shooting on the fly. We were both pleased with the results and many of the shots were used on his EP website.
I dusted off my bass guitar and joined a band - Big Money Gators. I helped revamp their website too. Check it out – it's all in the process of coming together so bookmark it and watch it grow.
Since I moved back to Austin in 2009, friends from elsewhere will ask me about the live music scene. I'm usually hesitant to talk about anything in terms of "favorites" and "bests," but in this case I can easily name my top picks...
