A city fill with hardcore Saints fans, architecture to die for, beignets that melt in your mouth, music in the streets makes you just want to dance, art lining the streets, culture that pours all over the city & color that makes a photographer go gaga over!!!
Definitely will make a trip back there in the near future!
Not sure if you know but my family owns several Martial Art schools & a fully equipped gym, so I grew up in the fighting/karate world. Its actually a really neat world to be apart of. My brother is a professional boxer, amateur MMA fighter, Jiu Jitsu enthusiast & a well rounded martial artist. I also grew up doing the martial arts, but Im retired now-yes I know it sounds silly but I really am.
At our gym last night, we were graced with a killer girl from Brazil who is making her UFC debut July 26th in a brand new weight class. How cool is that?!! I think its pretty awesome. Its not every day that you get to meet people at the beginning of their career & then later say when their all big & bad, I know them! Like I actually know & have trained with them.
You’re probably thinking, what does fighting have to do with MY photography page? A few things actually, its a personal thing that I love & its apart of my everyday life. There are many people who actually shoot fighter’s for a living and they rock! My personal favorite is Ryan Loco, Im always inspired how he started and where his talent has taken him. I always like challenging myself and shooting something different, something that I know but look at differently now that Im on the sidelines. And any excuse to show off my kick ass brother & his raw talent is always a good enough excuse for pictures! (He used to hate me taking pictures of him, now thats all he wants me to do. I guess persistence pays off.)
So with that said, I hope you enjoy these photos & don’t forget to watch Ju Thai on July 26th kill during her fight!

This was one of the most awesome experiences I’ve ever encountered. My good friend Chelsie & I were traveling to New York for some shoots, while we were taxing waiting for the plane to take off I was sitting next to this dapper dude & knew he had to be some kind of musician. We got to chatting & turns out that him & his band were traveling to New York for the Get out of the Garage competition. Come to find out, they were a local Texas band from San Antonio – needless to say, Matt (the drummer) & I hit it off really nicely! They invited us to go watch them play &&& we got to take our cameras in & shoot them while they played an awesome set.
Hydra Melody guys-it was so wonderful meeting you guys! We had such an awesome time & it was a great way to kick off our trip to New York!! Chelsie & I can’t wait to go back & hope to run into you guys again! Keep up all of the amazing work, can’t wait to hear y’alls new album!!!

Two weeks ago today, I was wrapping up the last day of the Three Nails Photography workshop. I can’t put into words how amazing the experience was and how invigorating it was to learn from so many talented people, especially Hunter. Hunter is one of my biggest inspirations and I LOVE his work, being able to learn from him was truly amazing. I met so many talented photographers at this workshop and we all instantly clicked which was wonderful! I hope I get to work with them all again during my journey as a photographer, until then Im going to work my butt off fulfilling my dream and ever lasting desire to be a world class photographer.
Here are some sneak peeks at the various shoots that we did.
