My 2016 vacation was to visit internet friends that I’ve known for 5+ years. It’s crazy how you talk every day and get to know people, and one day you think, “Hey, let’s go visit these people I’ve never met.” It turned out to be a great trip, and I captured some really good photos.
I spent some time out at Lake Wichita in Wichita Falls, TX. They’re in quite a drought, so the lake level was really low. This let me get some pretty good photos by the old pier. Plus it didn’t hurt there was an amazing sunset going on at the same time.
I revisited the Hall-Bennett Hospital because someone told me there was a way inside. Previously, I had tried all the doors and had come up empty handed. This time, I was able to get inside and photograph this creepy hospital.
I recently found about a new DIY filter that produces some interesting results (from other photographers!). It turns out, if you put a piece of welding glass in front of your lens, it acts as a very affordable neutral density filter. Basically, you can shoot in daylight while doing long exposures.

I got to take a trip to Frisco, TX for work so of course I went down a day early so I could find things to photograph (see my post on the Botanical Gardens). When I finally got to the hotel I was staying at for work, I was blown away. This place was nice. Read More
I had to go to the Dallas area for a conference for work, so I decided to go down a day early in order to find some things to photograph. I ended up at the Forth Worth Botanical Gardens for most of the day. It was such a peaceful place and a great place to Read More
So my parents are awesome. Why’s that? It’s because they drive around down these small country roads to find places for me to photograph. This is one of those places.
As you may or may not know, I’m in a band called The Pardoned. We desperately needed some band photos for the web and other uses. While driving around with my parents, I saw an old abandoned house in a field near Holliday, TX. Too bad it was raining or it would’ve been a perfect Read More
I visited Abilene, TX back in July for the weekend (I know, I know, I’m HORRIBLE at updating this blog, but I promise I’ll get better!). I went to the downtown area and a few places out of the way to get some interesting shots. Let’s just say Abilene has some weird stuff. I mean Read More
This weekend I took a trip up to the Amarillo/Canyon area to visit Palo Duro Canyon State Park. The clouds were out in full force and they really make my photos look a lot better. The wind, however, was a constant battle. It had to be gusting around 20-30mph all day long.
