Back in October I spent a long weekend documenting some high school football games in and around the Dallas/Fort Worth area. I'd been flirting with a "Texas Football" themed project for a few years, particularly to live alongside the Lone Star series I photographed back in 2009. An open weekend came up, so I jumped on a flight to see what I could dig up.
Thrilled to find out that a portion of the project was selected as a winner for this year's PDN Photo Annual! While I definitely don't think this project is even close to complete, it's such an honor to be included in this year's crop of photographers. Pick up a copy of this month's PDN or go here to view all the winners. Below is a small sample from the project, and you can view more on my website.
Hoping to pursue this project deeper in the coming months and especially this fall. If you have any connections or stories related to Texas High School Football, please contact us!
You never know where you'll land in the world of editorial photography. I've been working with Lisa at Gotham Magazine for a couple years now, but we've never had a week like this one. They were putting together a story featuring the 50 most powerful women in New York City, and asked me to photograph a handful for the 10-page feature.
Over a string of four cold days, we photographed at NYC City Hall, Hirschfeld Theater (set of Kinky Boots), a congresswoman's office, Fox News studios, the New York Times executive floor, Metropolitan Museum of Art and home of the Tribeca Film Festival. Below are some tears from the story and a few outtakes. A great week with some inspiring women. Such a fun assignment.
See the full story in this month's GOTHAM Magazine.
SO pumped to be part of this project. ATO Records brought us on to shoot a few new press images and an EPK for the new Old 97's record that released in April 2014. Growing up in Dallas, I've been a fan of these guys for the better part of two decades, so I was extremely honored to shoot for one of their best records to date.
Ernest Alexander brought us on to help with their Fall 2014 Presentation during Fashion Week this year. We lit the stage, shot a look book, documented the evening and made a short video. It was another great chapter with one of our favorites.
As with everything lately, couldn't have done this without my main dude Steven Stauffer.
